Mn Walleye 1976

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.

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0

      Was up last weekend to Kab, and fishing is very good right now. We caught a lot of walleyes (lots of smalls) on jig & minnow, and got in to a lot of Crappies as well. Have fun! The bite is on.

      Appreciate it barbel. Any info is good info this time of year. Head up in 4 days. I think all the fisherman are all haunting the woods instead of the water right now. Thanks again
