Recent weather change and the bite

Recommended Posts

huskminn

Heading up Friday PM and I am wondering how the recent cool front and now high pressure has affected things on Mille Lacs.

I know things have slowed a little over the last couple of weeks, but I'm looking for any noticeable trends that have developed this week.

Also interested in what the smallies have been doing!

Thanks!

From here on out weather's not going to be your enemy. Bait fish is. If you havent already, try pulling crankbaits or floating raps on bottom bouncers on the gravel or 3 ways on the mud. Concentrate on the deep edges during the day. Dont be afraid to pull them fast. Right know those fish are full of spring of the year bait or they maybe not feeding at all. The key is to pull something past them they havent seen at a speed where they have little time to choose if they want it or not. When fish are negitive like they are now, getting them to bite on instinct can be the ticket. You can also cover lots of water when fish are not schooled up like they are. Good luck...

The bite is still good. Live bait rigs are still producing plenty of fish on the flats. Try spinners and crawlers as well. Also, if you get enough wind the shallows are loaded with fish and you can do pretty good with a slip bobber and leech. You can also try trolling the reefs with Shad Raps, I caught quite a few on Tuesday doing both.

My brother has been pulling crankbaits. Set 'em in the rod holder and off ya go. He's been back for about four weekends straight and every time he says he hit 'em big time. Last weekend was several 22-28 inchers. I went for 3 hours two weeks ago he was keeping us out in the deeper stuff, on the edge away from the groups.

Hey guys, thanks for the input.....sounds like all the elements are there and lord knows I've got the tackle to try all the presentations.

I don't want the wind to keep us off the lake, but then again, I do like that shallow water bite!

Thanks again.

      They haven’t even gotten to eclipse plumage yet.  I haven’t seen enough birds around here to compare but they seem pretty young!   Great pic though!

      K-dub, I have been seeing a lot more bluegills of that size in Big Bay this year then ever before! Ran into a school of them last week and boated 17 gills that size one afternoon! Cliff

      Shimano Sedonas are work horses for the buck too.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.
