Well.. here's the Ironic part. Today I caught 5 walleyes in a pond about a mile from my house. The size? Oh.. fingerlings I guess the DNR had put in the "pit pond" this spring.. about 3 inches long each... What does this mean? Both times I went to the "Greatest Walleye Fishery of the state" I got skunked. Once was with a friend.. the other was on a charter-- not a SINGLE person on the boat caught a fish.. not even a perch that day. (and this was ALL day.. (8 hrs) )

I'm hoping destiny will change as the guy who took me out before is taking us out again Sunday.. but we'll see. Atleast it's an enjoyable ride aboard his 23' cabin cruiser if bouncing over the waves doesn't make you sea-sick wink.gif

If it actually is calm that day maybe I'll try to convince him to go shallow so we can fish for bass and pike instead.. atleast it's something we can KEEP.

It sounds like You and Mille Lacs are probably not a good match. That's OK - to each their own.

Were your skunkings this year? If you are getting skunked this year, you might want to consider getting a different friend to take you out on Mille Lacs smile.gif

For me, it is my favorite lake to fish, regardless of what I can or can't keep.

Crawlerman, I fished Mille Lacs for the first time last weekend. And at first the lake seems like it would be hard to fish because of its size but if you know walleyes you can almost find the fish anywhere on that lake the structure on that lake is great! We just explored the lake and caught fish everywhere we went! you should get a good map and figure out from people what the fish are feeding on and what type of presentation! A little knowlage of the lake would increase your percentage a great deal go out and have fun and pull up some big walleyes, then tell the guy your going with were to go!! Brettskee

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      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)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      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"
