Where's the action at?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am planning on fishing ML this weekend for the first time in two weeks. Just wondering if anyone is having any luck catching eyes lately?

I tentatively plan to start on the mud, but I am also wondering if shallower rock or north sand related areas are producing.

I had seen in a couple of posts last week, that the bite seems to have started to shift to Fall type patterns. Is this true?

Any info would be appreciated.

Sorry, no hot bite to report, just a little info that may help your search.....Scott and I didn't find any major schools of fish as compared to previous weeks out there. Fish seemed to be scattered. We tried many flats with limited success. The fish we caught on the mud were at or near the bottoms. We also tried rocks and sand, shallow and deep. We spent some time away from the mud hoping to pick up fish closer to the slot. Other teams fishing the MTT said they caught 20-25 fish, but no slots. There are still groups of fish willing to bite.........WHERE? We didn't find them......

Fathead/ Try trolling the shorelines after dark with cranks. I will be on the pond for the next five days. My partner did well last night in 8 feet along the shoreline rocks. The day bite is still sporatic and will be until late Sept early Oct.

at mille lacs lake have very fews weeds and most shore are sand and rocks so you should not worry expect rocks (crankbait may stuck and break line) i did caught 4 walleye and one in slot i was pulled crankbait at 10 to 11 feet deep last sat night

What type of presentation was working on the flats? I read a post from a couple of weeks ago that said crawlers was the way to go, is that still true? Thanks.

Good luck on your outing, the bite is still pretty slow. My best advice is fish the shallow shoreline related spots in the evenings if not all day depending on cloud cover and wind. I have been able to get a few on shad raps on shallow rock structure, but it is not fast action.

Thanks everyone for the info.

Dman... Are you guys fishing in the shallow rock areas of the SW corner? I believe thats where you tend to go out of if I am not mistaken.

I was definetely going to run cranks, regardless of what areas I start out at. But I was either considering the S and SE shore-related rock areas or maybe scooting up to the NE sand and maybe Agate Reef. Have you heard if anything is shaking up in that area?

      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.
