Fishing On Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

Geez,   No reports at all.  Anyone fishing the big pond?

I heard, and it looked like there was a tourney out there over the weekend.  But wow, was the lake riled up with the winds. I’m glad I wasn’t fishing it.

My son has been there through last week to present,. The wind has been pretty bad the last few days that has minimized his fishing areas. 

on June 9 & 10 him and two others in the boat landed 134 fish, mostly bass but did have several Walleye, Northern and one Musky. All were in 10 feet of water or less and he fished with ned rigs worms, tubes, flukes and spinner baits. Water temperatures ranged from 61 in the AM to 67 late in the day. Conditions were sunny and windy.

I will be headed their tomorrow from Oklahoma and will be fishing June 14, 15 & 16 with my son.

The full moon phase will be June 17 so I hope to have good fishing in the shallows along with Bass a wave of Bass spawning.

We have been flooded out of our lakes and most all ramps and access areas still remain closed due to high water levels.

I will write another fishing report by mid next week once I get back from my fishing trip.

Good luck @Mark Gottula


Thanks for the report.  It’s interesting to see as many out of staters coming to our neck of the woods to fish the smallies.  It’s  been so many years that I’ve only talked to locals heading south to try your waters, mostly to chase bass in the winter.


Welcome and have a good time.

I have been out there twice since the 1st of June to target smallmouth.  The first trip was good, the second not so much.  They were pre-spawn the first time and more willing to bite.  The second trip they may have already been post spawn or still spawning and they were not as willing.  The second trip was also much windier and boat control was an issue.  My folks have been out on the main lake several times since opener targeting walleyes with live bait and they have done well.  They average 25 fish/day and most of them are in the 22-27 inch range with the biggest being 27.5 inches.  I heard there was a huge bug hatch recently.  When I was last out there a week ago the water temp was 66 degrees.  If the wind is blowing, you'll need a really big boat to get out to the flats and walleye fish because there's 4 foot waves.
