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.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
