Disbelief - mille lacs walleyes

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?

My friend and his kid took 13th place in a tournament last weekend and they were fishing 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 just thought of a couple more things.  One fun, or at least mildly entertaining activity is geocaching.  It involves finding a container that was hidden and contains a log of finders and sometimes some trinkets. Is so, you take something and leave something in place of it.  The locations are specified by GPS coordinates. On a geocaching Web sight   Another is that I recall reading, in MN volunteer I think,  about a sna or something on an island in Frazier bay area, againa little foggy here with some old growth trees.  I remember thinking it would be fun to go there. Sorry for the nebulous description.   I'd appreciate more info if anyone has any idea about the place

      Also, once the gulls rip the guts out through the gills, down they go.      The quota for 2019 is 87,000 pounds.   Let's say that 50k pounds, the mortality from last year is the mortality for 2019.   So that is maybe 20,000 fish on the whole lake over a 200 day period.  Average a hundred dead walleye a day.   Maybe several times that at peak times.   But a couple hundred dead walleye on a lake of 207 square miles...   one per square mile up to maybe a few per square mile...       Not what I would think of as "seeing a bunch of floaters" .  And the wind disperses them away from the place they were released, so some would be in places where people aren't fishing...

      Used to be full of carp, back in the day.   Try corn or boilies.   Or walk around the lake and see if anyone is fishing.      Carp are fun to catch.

      Have you tried Trolling? 🤔

      Never been there, but here’s a contour map if that helps any.
    • Wanderer
      You, Sir, are a pretty darn good fisherman. Cool, calm and collected.  😎

      https://www.habitatnow.com/store/shop/shop.php?pn_selected_category=19 A distributor in MN that I've heard of before although I have not worked with them nor bought any product from them. I would check with your local Fish and Wildlife departments and see if it is legal for you to plant this first Kettle
