Mille Lacs Tullibees,

Recommended Posts

Anyone know were to find them? Just wondering on what to use on them, depths, bottom content, etc. that you can find the most of them in. I have heard of good bites, and fish commonly biting as soon as you can get your line down, I just don't really know were to go.

went after them for the first time last weekend and found them pretty easily in deeper water(mid 30ish) out by banana reef and hennepin island, electronics help as they can be suspended at random depths. as far as tackle the fish were not very picky, jig and some waxies should do the trick. good luck!

last weekend we caught them in 35 feet of water off of the mud, about 30 yards from the breakline. We caught them on anything from panfish jigs(glow flipper jig seemed best) to #1 do-jiggers, the Hali jig worked well. We caught most with waxworms but many were caught with minnow heads. Most biters came about 3-5 ft of bottom. Fishing with bobbers worked but jigging them was far better.

How long were you fishing, and how many did you end up getting?

What is the best way to cook Tullibees? I have read several posts that they are good in the smoker, but can you fillet them and just cook them like "normal"? We will be on Mille Lacs this weekend and hope to get a few.

Last year I baked up alot of them and mixed them with walleye and could not tell the difference. I also put a few in my deep frier and they were good that way too.

The possession limit for Tullibees at Mille Lacs is 10 per person, correct?

Was out this morning from 8-11 am. Got 14 tullies and several jumbos. One of the jumbos was a freak. Got them all off of a mud flat in 32-35ft. (Near the bottom of the break) Using a small red jigging spoon with a minnow head. The Tullies were constently on the flasher, but the trick was to start pulling the jig up letting them chase it, sometimes as much as 10ft.

Good luck!

Trappingaddiction, we caught well over 100 that day. Although I went out yesterday afternoon with my father in law, in the same spot and we only managed to catch 13 (1pm-dark). Still marked fish all the time but had a very hard time getting them to bite. I have not seen so many fish follow a bait 15 ft up andnot bite, it was a strange day.

I would like to go up Tuesday for some Tullibees/perch. Not very familiar with Mille Lacs, but planning on going out of Terry's with only 2 wheel drive pick up. Will that work? Also, the Mpls forecast calls for temps around 9 above Tues and Wed. Will that affect the bite? Thanks

you will limited to the roads. There are some difts out there and I needed 4 wheel drive. One of the guys I was with got hung up and I had to pull him out and he was in a 4 wheel drive truck. The weather does not seem do much to tullies.

Thanks...I think I will try it. Called Terry's today and the guy I talk to didn't seem concerned. I have learned to be careful with my pickup. Have to get a 4x4 though!!!

How much does Terry charge for a road pass? Would that be a better area to look for tullibees, as opposed to the SE end of the lake? Was gonna go after trout next weekend, but hearing about this hot tullibee bite is giving me an itch smile

      My 115 merc 4 stroke (2006) is acting up.  At about 2/3 throttle, 30 mph, 4000 rpm's the motor seems to cavitate or rev up and the tach pops way up, but we didn't speed up.  I quickly backed off and ran at a lower speed.  I have it trimmed up on plane but not overly so.  It did it once at a lower speed as well.  Most of the time at lower speeds it riund fine. Brought it in and they looked at it and pulled the prop and everything looked fine there etc.  The motors lower plate seems to be located correctly, right at the bottom of the boat.  Going on one last trip, and don't really have much time to bring it in for an extensive diagnosis, might need to baby it and stay close to the landing.  Any ideas?

      Samsung Note 10+.  It does have a great camera.  Had to use the digital zoom on that shot.  Wish I had my wildlife camera with me.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.
