Really would like to hear more reports as well!

Thanks for your report!

I havent heard much info personally either.  Seems Mille Lacs anglers are more secretive now.  Worried thier reports effect the quota I have been told.  

Please keep reporting guys.

Nice report.

I also heard 7 mile reef out of Garrison was putting out a lot of big Mille Lacs walleye along with numbers in the 16" to 19" range.

My parents have been out there regularly in the past 10 days and the best walleye fishing of the season is going right now, especially if you want to catch really big fish out on the mud flats.  The bugs are hatching too...

Do you have any pics or video of your fishing on Mille Lacs?

Is the best bite still on the mud?

 Deep gravel/rocks is also kicking out tons of fish, especially the evening bite.  Slip bobbers and leeches, or crawlers. Jigging Raps, pulling plugs, boards or lead core, it all works.  Look to 3 Mile, 4 Mile, 5 Mile, July Bar, or any adjacent rock piles, small reefs, humps or any contour change. General depths has been 25 feet plus.

      I do security at Vikings museum n store. If you haven’t been there, you should.  It has a lot of Viking history starting before the Vikings with Ernie’s Eskimos to the current day.  Who knows it just might run in to one of the former Vikings . Randall McDaniel and even Bud Grant  stop in occasionally.  We have had visitors from England Australia Tasmania Ireland and yes even Wisconsin .  The hours are Monday through Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday noon to five.  And they’ve also lowered their price .  So if the fish aren’t biting come check out some Viking history .

      The regulation I was referring to is the going from 8 to 6 fish limit with not more than 4 walleye. Does this mean you can have 6 sauger and no walleye? 
    • mrpike1973
      Can you point out the new regs? I have been out spearing and fishing but it's so hard getting around I think it is preventing a lot of people going out.

      Maybe you should change it to a bowling get together 😉

      I've been having health problems lately so can't comment on the fishing but I agree completely with the change of regs.

      It's awful quiet on this site, fishing can't be that bad or is it? Also how does everybody feel about the March 1st regulation change?

      Bert, go look at information online about Dane County wisconsin.   They did nothing and now have infection rates rapidly approaching 50% of the deer in some areas.      And yes, deer/elk farms have been known vectors of CWD for decades. See Elk Run near Pine Isand as an example, or the importing of breeding stock by lease hunting operations in Dane County.    But some folks were making money and they captured the regulators in the Ag department of the state. so the natural resource folks couldn't do much, apparently.       Funny you  guys should mention AIS. since it was known for a long time that the ships from Europe pumping their bilge and ballast in the great lakes was a problem, but the coast guard didn't make them flush tanks at sea for several decades, because the ship operators kept whining it would increase cost.    So now we have gobies and zeebs and quagas and spiny water fleas and other bad stuff.   Likewise with green wood pallets that brought us dutch elm disease, and emerald ash borers.   There could have been a reg that all wood pallets coming into the country needed to be heat treated.   But that would have cost someone money, so now no ash or elm trees around.      If caught quick enough in an area CWD can be eradicated (see pine island ) and the elimination of deer farms will greatly slow the spread.      Where are the QDM and Deer Hunter association folks?  Why aren't they demonstrating and lobbying and all that for the state to do something more aggressive?
