Mille Lacs Muskies- Help

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm heading up to Mille Lacs for the first time to Muskie fish. Can anyone give me ideas of hot spots to fish (I have a map with all the bays,etc marked), and any lures that have been working lately?

Every guide trip this week-end produced alot of action. Sunday evening we had on 3 big muskies that spit the hook and caught 2. We caught them on a bucktail spinner that Scott Shore (McQuoids Guide) made for me. I am hearing good reports from Vineland Bay, Cove Bay, and Isle Bay. I am hearing of alot of over 50" fish. My biggest so far is 48 1/2" and we have lost 4 bigger. My hooks are very sharp and late July it is normal to lose a few. We rarely use a pliers this time of year and the hook usually falls out in the net. In late August they get much more aggressive and we use a pliers on all of them. Good luck!

Muskieman-
Thanks for the advice. I was up this past weekend but got talked into walleye fishing instead. But... I will be back up there and going for muskies this time- will try out those bays. Are you trolling off of weedlines and throwing into them? Ever do any good trolling?

You better go to Wealthwood landing as there is a muskie tournament on the southside of the lake and there is currently over 60 boats registered. The southside will be pounded. I troll and can run 8 lines. I cover alot of water and troll a wide varity of lures. When in a very weedy area I run surface lures. I also run a dipsy diver in deep water. I fish from 1 to 30 feet.

I believe I'll be on your boat Thursday night with a bunch of "elderly gentleman" to try for some Muskie's.
Hope the Muskie's get into a feeding frenzy.

See ya then.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
