Where on Miltona??

Recommended Posts

Hossienda

Hey Guys,
So last week I asked about geneva and did not even fish the lake. I ended up on Latoka off of fireman's lodge and all I caught was some bass while running Red Tails thru there.

This week I am for sure going to Miltona, and have never fished the lake in the open water season and only once in the winter. Do any of you have any suggestions on where to go? I am mainly interested in Walleyes.
Thanks for the help.

Hoss, I'm sure we'll all try to help you out. The problem is there are so many spots, and all of them can be very weather dependant - especially at this time of the year. Things will be changing soon if they haven't begun already. Grab a good map from G-man's shop and use it. The last couple of weeks we've still seen the best bite right at sundown, you definitely want to be on the water at that time. We've had the most consistent bite right at 18 ft. on the edge of the weedline. When you pick a spot and find fish just stay there and "hover" with the trolling motor. As for general spots, the west edge of the flats are worth a try, as are the edge of the flats on the east shore by the main access. But probably better yet are some of the mid-lake humps and smaller main lake points, although obviously harder to find. Shallow water spots will also produce soon if they haven't begun already. I wish I could be more specific but it's tough to describe spots that aren't easily read on a map. Hopefully G-man can be of more assistance as he probably has up-to-the-day information.

Good Luck,
Scott

Hoss...I'll echo what anderland says. Look over the map, and there a few spots to target. Full moon tonight, so this weekend you'll still catch some of that effect. Lots of anglers have success trolling the shallows during a full moon. Either across the flats, or the south shore where the creek runs out toward Ida....

stop or give a call when you can...we'll try to give some specifics for you...

good luck and good fishing...

Well, I made it out last thurday night, and to say the least, did not do very well.

Started out fishing the mid-lake flats, and found a quick drop from about 14-35 feet, and did not even get a bite, and that was the way things went for the rest of the night. We trolled red tails, crawlers and rapala's and nothing. I suppose it could have been the lousy weather, but that is just to easy to explain away. Do appreciate the info, even if I could not make anything work. Just need to keep tryin.

That's the spirit hoss....keep trying...

Miltona is big water, and the 'eyes can be scattered and on various patterns. I've talked to anglers who've had success the same weekend, one group finds 'em shallow...12-18 feet or less...another jigged deep water...40+ feet. Try it when the weathers better...it feels better if you get skunked on a nice day!


good luck and good fishing!

      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?
