Mille Lacs Fall Smallies

Recommended Posts

fish'n fool

My boy and I are heading up to the big pond this Friday 8/30/19 to try our luck at some smallie fishing. I haven't been up there In quite a few years and have never been up there to target small mouth bass. I've done quite a bit of research on forums and You Tube to find what I could to help us locate fish. I have a good handle on tackle to use and I know to fish bigger rocks on the SE side of the lake from what I've gathered. I have GPS and lake maps on my Lowrance so that should help. With the weather cooling down I'm wondering if anyone has been fishing recently or has a recommendation on how deep to try and maybe a good area/reef to start our search. Any help at all would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

Go out of Appledoorns and head to the island. Fish the rocks as they drop into deeper water. You can head south toward the bays and do the same.

They definitely will not be bunched up until late October. Anywhere with rocks will hold fish. Finding the big ones and getting them to bite will be a bit if a challenge as the pressure on them is high. I'd say 14'-20' and I'd fish smaller baits since the water is warm smaller tube or ned rig
