Duck,

Did depth matter? Were you primarly using leeches? My bro is in town from californai and he has never fished Mille Lacs. Trolling might be difficult so I will more than likely slip bobber.....

Vikes/ I would highly recommend trolling crankbaits after dark. Troll stick minnow imitators like the Millenniuw Stick minnow or a floating Rapala. Hit the shoreline rocks and shallow rock flats in 5-6 feet.

VIKES, WE WERE IN 18 TO 23 FT WILE FLOATING LINDY'S AND WHEN WE WERE FISHING SLIPS WE WERE IN 20 FT ON THE EDGE OF THE FLAT. LEECHES ARE WORKING THE BEST BUT MINNOWS AND CRALLERS ARE PUTTING SOME FISH IN THE BOAT LINDYING AND LEECHES ON YOUR SLIP BOBBERS IN THE EVE YOU CANT BEET IT.
ILL BE OUT THERE TOMARROW DURING THE DAY TILL AROUND 3:30 OR SO. LOOK FOR A TAN 1750 FISH HAWK WITH A TEAM ESOX STICKER ON THE WINDSHIELD, 115 JOHNSON THAT READS DUCK JOHNSON ON THE SIDE. GOOD LUCK AND

HAPPY HUNTING

D-man,

Thanks for the response. Sorry we couldnt hook up this weekend. Me and my bro will still try and put in some wallys in the boat w/o you. LOL.

For trolling is the amount of line a big deal with those shallow depths. IS this a trolling motor troll or the big motor? My honda 90 trolls down to 1.5-2 and the Vantage can get me slower? Or shopuld UI buzz thorugh at 3mph like I do on Lake Peppin.

Sorry about all the questions but I havent cranked much on Mille Lacs. Primarily stuck to lindy's and spinners during the day and bobbering at night.

Let me know.

Didnt realize it was you LOL. Yea the Vantage is key in this situation. Longline (100-130 feet) those cranks in shallow water. The shorelines have been going good. You may also want to try the top of Garrison Reef.

Vikes,

Are you planning on hitting my "secret" smallie spot on Saturday? If so, you better get up early! smile.gif

There will be three of us in my light-colored Alumacraft Lunker V16....40 Merc...FishingMinnesota.com decals port and starboard. If you see me, give a wave.

We'll be bobbering at dusk and after dark, even though the long-lining is a favorite of mine. I just don't want to deal with three lines after dark in a boat as small as mine.

Have a great weekend and good luck.

Husk,

I wont be getting on the lake till 3 or later. If my bro is up to it we might see me swing by there and throw some raps for smallies. Shhhhhhh! Dont let anyone in on our, I mean YOUR secret spot.

Will try the trolling for a while but my bro (a novice fisherman) may be more comfortable with the slip bobbering. You know what my boat looks like (even with a cover wink.gif.


See you on the BIG POND!!!!

      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.

      Bluegills and why is knowing I can catch a bunch and you never know how big it will be when that bobber disappears under the water.
