Luck anywhere on Mille Lacs?

Recommended Posts

Iceman73

I am planning on going up on Labor Day in the am and fishing for the day, is there any place that would offer me a decent chance of catching fish? If so, what's the presentation? Thanks for any help.

There are still walleye to be caught on Mille Lacs. I fished a tournament this weekend on the big pond and the bite was tough but it certainly wasn't bad. We only caught 2 slot fish but there are still lots of nice fish, you just have to work for them. There are a lot of YOY perch and they seem to be giving the walleye all they want to eat. My suggestion would be to start looking shallower for fish, especially if you are after slot fish. The fish are really spread out in the lake right now so some shallow structure will give you an area to focus on. The nice thing is you won't have to fight the crowds. The only ones on the lake this weekend seemed to be tournament fisherman.Scott Steil

Hey Scott, what was the top three weighing in at this weekend? Big Fish? One day tourney or two? Thanks for the info.

It was the MTT, 2 day on Mille Lacs this weekend. Top weight was 3.33, 3 slot fish. There were no big fish brought in, several up to 27.5 were caught but none over 28. Saturday there were only 7 slot fish brought in and Sunday there were only 12. Everyone felt the bite was very tough, but there were fish to be had. We weighed two Slots and I lost two others that would have been very close. Other then that we had one under and probably 12 over.Scott Steil

Thanks for the responses. We will be launching out of either Garrison or the access just north of the casino. I'm not as concerned with slot fish as catching some nice ones. I am bringing the wife on the big lake for the first time and I'd like to try and get her a bigun'. Thanks for any help you can give me.

      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"
