With the crazy restrictions on Mille Lacs and the uncertain opener are any of you still planning to fish Mille Lacs? Will you hit other lakes or just going to stay home this summer and hope things get back to normal? The very dedicated Walleye guys are really going to need to adjust or hit other lakes.
Businesses are going to get clobbered.
Sad situation. Hopefully there is something left in 2021.

A group of high school buddies and some of their family make an Annual trip up to Baudette, MN to fish Walleyes on Lake of the Woods. I look forward to this trip each year! Since this is an Annual Trip we all put some money and bragging rights on the line for the Angler who can catch the biggest fish of the weekend, take home the Trophy, $400 Cash and call themselves "Mr. Walleye" for the next 365 days. Watch the first full day of fishing out of Ballards Resort and see 2 new PB's!
When will pools 2, 3, and 4 start producing the quality & quantity that fishing shows are made of?
Last Tuesday there was a decent number of rigs in the lot at 494. We messed around from shore and only managed wind bites. There wasn't a bunch of time or energy spent casting plastics & drowning worms,,,but it was sooooo nice to play with a long rod. With any luck the shore ice will be gone in a jiffy and then it's game on. Can't wait to stick a biggun and let her go.

I have been fishing walleyes on Pokegama for the past few summers with very little luck. Admittedly, I have not put much time in, but I plan to this summer. Can anyone provide any insights as to how to fish them, as well as where to fish them, both day and night? I notice that most posts highlight Winnie, Sugar, Split Hand etc., with little mention of Pokegama. Is it simply because it is very difficult to fish?
My 4 yr old wants to try to catch his first walleye. We live across from Stillwater just a couple miles into WI. Prefer a WI lake within 30 min. I would Appreciate any guidance I can get. Hoping to get out next weekend.
Well you have a few questions... lets get started😁 Rods... like bass or walleye or anything else that swims, you may or may not be able to do it all with one pole, more than one. I use a couple different types, depending on what's working.
I like a long one for fishing floats, to make those long casts. For this I chose a 7 1/2 ft, moderate action, light power.
For throwing those 1/32 -1/16oz jigs without a float I use a 6 1/2 ft ultra light, fast action... much like a light walleye rod.
A little later in the summer and into fall, vertical jigging 4-5 mm tungsten jigs comes to life. I use a shorter rod, sometimes even an ice rod for this approach.
Your line selection should match your jig size and rod type. Most of the time I will spool up with 4lb Trilene xl, If I'm fishing water with a lot of pike, I will bump up to 6, but generally go as light as you can get by with, just like ice fishing.
I find myself using plastics about 90% of the time now days. Some of favorites are Impulse 1in minnows and minnow fry, Gulp whiptails, and lil hustler 1inch tubes. Most of the time Im pairing these plastics with a 1/60 or 1/32 lead head jig. I like a little slower fall rate when fishing early panfish... later in the season, when the fish move deeper, switching to a little heavier weight jigs will do a better job.
I've never chased panfish during the open water season. I caught my first bluegill this winter, and have developed quite the crush on them. What's your go to rod, length and action? Plastics or bait? Line type and lb? Do you use a bobber? Should I use same jigs as winter or plain hook?
