I have been out at millestone for two weeks and if the walleyes are not fish out of there yet there can't be many left.From what I seen there has to be forty trucks and cars out there a night on a small pond if each person even catches one walleye that's forty a night thats alot of walleye's in a two week span. Good luck if you go there.

Hey Swampman!

You're right! You're not imagining things...I did edit my post. Dewoutdoors70 and I were talking about Millstone after you brought it up and I remembered I had checked the DNR Lakefinder data on it...but unfortunately, there is no DNR data on the little pond...nor is there any contour map for it either...

Duane! You're home...I didn't get home from work until 4PM (13 hr. day!). Shoveled the driveway and it was 5PM! I'm tired...and I gotta drive another set of trailers to Duluth again at 2:30AM... frown.gif

Yea 7 feet would be max with the water levels as they are and it usually does have some weeds there is alot of hard sand bottom in the lake though. i am sure the dnr hopes it dies so they can get a fresh start.

Just to the right of where you drive out a point runs out in the lake that is all hard with some rocks on top drops off slow though. strait across the lake most of that shore is hard bottom. i fished just past the houses and a little to the ne.

was out there yesterday, caught three 13" fish. It is fun to catch a couple of walleyes this time of year even if they were small. Just out of curiousity, are there any bigger walleyes in this lake? Has there been fishing like this in this lake in the past winter or summer or is this a one year wonder?

      Work has pretty much kept me from fishing since late May😕 Did have the chance to hit the water for a few hours yesterday. I opted to hit the river for some smallie action with my limited time. The Sippi didn't disappoint, the brown bass had the feed bag on big time!. I hooked over 30 fish in 3 hrs, most being 15-17inchers with a few bigger and a few smaller mixed in.   Weightless stick baits rigged on a 1/0  is all I needed to throw.

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck.

      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍
    • Kettle
      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready
