Are there any perch left in the lake. All the times I have been up there I have not caught any. Last winter I only caught a couple. I think they are gone.

Labor Day week end I caught a nice jumbo. The numbers are down, but not gone. I'm not ready to push the panic button just yet. It also sounds like a good hatch this year!?!?

I have not seen to many lm bass come from the big pond but I have caught my fair share of smallies.

You're right, it's known more for smallies but there is very good and VERY overlooked LM fishing on Mille Lacs. There's one bay in particular........

Was on the pond yesterday intending to go for muskie & northern. They weren't in the southern bays or at least didn't want what we were throwing. As we're working the shorelines, we see large schools of perch in about 4-5' of water near the inside edges of submerged weed lines. Had to catch 10 little ones (ice jigs with tiny tubes) to keep 1 but it was fun. Took home about a 1/2 dozen for a nice meal. Oh by the way, the lm bass are big time in the reed flats. We caught 5 on muskie sized crank baits. The smallest was better than 2 1/2lbs, the biggest was pushing 5!! The key to the bass seemed to be slow-slow-slow and tight to the weed edge.

I was amazed when I pulled one in on a launch a few weeks ago.

sounds like the lake is pretty dead for them this year.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
