Spring Bite?

Recommended Posts

legendelite

I am need of a little assistance in fishing Mille Lacs in the month of May. I do very good in June/July on the mud-flats as well as the rocks in the fall.

I have never fished Mille Lacs during the spring and would like to know where you fish. Also, what bait?

Thanks for your help.

Legend/ Fish the shoreline rocks or north sand. Most fish come on bobbers and leeches or bottom bouncers,lindy rig's and long snells rigged with leeches and crawlers. If you can find spot-tail shinners they work very well too.We also did very well in may pulling cranks along the shallow shoreline rocks. Its pretty much shoreline or inland points in the spring. Where do you launch out of?

I use the ramp by the casino and hit Shermans, 7-Mile, etc. in June and over to Indian Pt during the fall full moon bite.

Should I be working the north side of the lake during the spring?

Your pretty close to me, The north end sand is a good bite, it can get crowded. But you have plenty of good areas where you go out of. The shorline rocks, the points,the bays. Wigwam bay puts out fish in 10-12 feet on long snells with leeches or crawlers. Rock Reef is good for corking. As you will see the boats, you dont need to go very far from shore.

      for sure not a best unit out there, kinda like jigs, rods and plastics. its what you have confidence in. tom and rick got me off the live bait to plastics a couple years ago and once you see it happen its a happy time.   same with electronics, to each his own.  so many fish, so little time... had an amazing day again today on the soft water. no live bait.

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.
