Suggestions for a quick 4 hour morning trip

Recommended Posts

BryanL

I need to be in Mora tomorrow afternoon and thought I would just come up early with my portable and hit a quick few hours in the morning. I have no idea how to fish Mille Lacs, and don't really know what people are referring to when they say the mud, flats, etc. not looking for any specific spots but was wondering If anyone can give me a tip on where to go out of to have a chance at some walleye/perch tomorrow morning. Would like to go out of Isle area for proximity to Mora. Just looking for a good access point and maybe depth to try. Thanks for any help.

if it were me id stop at Appledorns and ask the guys where they have been fishing the last few days. Drive right to the spot they reccomend and start fishing. cant get any easier than that.

Another question I would have would be about road passes. How early are places usually open? I want to make sure I pay the fee, but I also plan on being there by 7:00am. Do they usually have an "honor" box?

If you go out before they are open pay when you leave. Fishing mud flats mean drilling holes on edge of flat or deeper water by flat. Or the break on the flat to deep water. Seems vague but usually lots of hole drilling. If your used to structure might be easier to do that given the short amount of time.

      I wonder what the general location was??

      There will be a 60" out of there in next few years.

      I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.   Way to go on the muskie.

      Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa now holds Minnesota’s brand-new state record catch-and-release muskellunge, a 57¼-inch monster caught on Lake Vermilion.   read it in the Duluth news tribune   https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/4731617-Iowa-angler-lands-monster-musky-on-Lake-Vermilion

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.
