Crop...Don't fish Miltona for walleyes all that often but do fish Ida (neighbor to the South) which is a similar "big water" lake. For walleyes I would get a good map, possibly with gps coordinates and a gps unit if available. I would locate some mid lake structure (sunken islands, long wind blown points etc.) and fish those from the weed edge down to 30 or so ft. Chances are leeches or crawlers behind a live bait rig. If there are no weeds on top of the structure I would start fishing there in low light conditions and drop off the edge during the day. Just my $0.02 worth. That is what I will be doing on Ida. I may also be over on Miltona chasing some muskies. Good luck.

I dont know anything about the lake but you might want to read in this same site entries made on 6/17 6/16 about Lake Miltona. They mention what they used and presentation.

crop...good luck on miltona...sorry for late reply...recovering from grandmas marathon, been off the boards this week.

miltona offers lots of presentation possibilities....drag a crawler on the flats, troll raps shallow, jig deep....all can and do work with equal success. It's big water, as WW mentioned. Best pattern to start with is a leech and lindy rig...slow drag on the 18-24 foot breaklines. check out a map and look for some mid lake structure adjacent to deep water. drag the lindy/leech outside the deep weeds ( 18-22 feet or so) if your harrassed by rock bass, try moving deeper. keep an eye on the graph, don't be surprised if they don't show up until you reach the 30 foot mark. Miltona is a clear lake...so night fishing or early morning low light is also important.

good luck, and let us know how it goes.

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
