Smallie report

Recommended Posts

Fathead

Hello all,

I am primarily a "walleyehead" and I never usually have problems with the "Where & when" to fishing them on Mille Lacs. However, I am not as versed into good smallie locations on the lake. I do know of a couple on the SW end, but would like a little more input on some other areas. I am not looking for info like...Go to Popes point and fish next to the big rock at GPS coordinates...

I am just looking for typical areas that produce Mr. Bronzeback. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Dinosaur,

What would be your lure of choice for smallmouths on Mille Lacs?

Thanks for your help.

The south east corner of the lake has numerous rock reefs and they are marked with buoys. Some are connected to a shoreline break and others are surrounded by deeper water. This area has good potential for smallies and other fish. I think it is a good starting place for action.

I caught a nice 20" smallie on a tube on the SE side of the pond. It was on a break close to the rocks. 8' of water.

Also caught an 18" and a couple smaller ones too. The tube and leeches were the ticket. But the water clarity is cloudy with all the rain.

I did see a nice largemouth (about 18") and a lot of largemouth minnows in the real shallow weeds. They were mixed in with the perch minnows.

Mille Lacs rules!

I would agree that a tube is hard to beat as a starter lure. Work the edges slowly to see if they will hit. I usually have a couple of rods ready with other choices like small crank baits or inline spinners. Leeches and crawlers worked through the rocks produces also.

      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.
