Lake Miltona

Recommended Posts

minnesotamusky

My dad and I will be fishing Lake Miltona tomorrow. We have never been there before and were wondering where to find the walleyes and muskies. Maybe even bass and panfish. I do have a pretty good lake map. Can anyone point out the best spots for us? Thanks.

Sorry I didn't see your post ealier.
Spent the last week fishing Miltona, Mostly trying for Muskies(with no luck). But did find a few crappies, bass, walleye, and bluegills(two ten inchers), Straight out from the north landing, where the flat drops off to the east. 14ft to 20ft was the place to be, jigging with leeches and crawlers.

On a little side note, we did catch two fish, a 3lb pike and a 1lb rock bass, that had both been obviously been attacked by a large predator, while being reeled in. I caught the pike, and while reeling it in I nearly had the pole jerked out of my hands, once landed, the fish started bleeding from the area where the scales and some skin had just been removed. And Leah caught the rock bass with wounds that didn't come from a prop. We were close to the big boys, they seemed to want live "bait" more than anything else we tried.

Let me know how you did, and where you fished, that lake has so much different structure to fish it takes alot of time to figure it out. Last week 14 to 20 ft with heavy veggies held the most fish that were willing to bite for us.

We didn't have much luck yesterday. Caught a few small largmouth bass, alot of rock bass, one sunfish and one really small perch. All of that in ten hours of fishing. I couldn't keep the rock bass off of my orange fat rap. As soon as it hit the water, they hit it. I fished most of the day for muskies, not even a follow up. My dad was fishing for anything but muskies. We started the day fishing off of Tamarack Point and worked our way to the very west bay by the reeds. We fished alot of the sharp drop offs and humps. Towards the end we tried fishing the Flats and then trolled back to the boat landing at sundown. That is when I caught all of those rock bass. It was our first time on Miltona. I am definitely going back this fall. That is a very interesting lake. I like all the structure. We don't have any lakes like that in the Marshall area. I wish we did. All we have is large mud ponds with a few fish. How are most of the muskies caught on that lake? Where and how do they catch them? I talked to a guy at the landing and he said that he caught one, only 30", trolling for walleyes. Any advice? Thanks!

breezy and overcast days are great for throwing bucktail spinners. fall trolling can be productive on miltona, too. jake baits or big stick baits. look for the deep cabbage and work over the tops or the outside edges. a lot of bass fishermen will boat 'skis when jigging the deep weeds for largemouth. it is a fantastic fishery, great multi-species lake.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.

      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
