First Full Moon

How many people are headed up next weekend for the full moon night bite? Where does everybody generally start fishing? I was thinking of starting to work the area from Wealthwood to The Red Door.

There will be a pretty big crowd on the 21st, most people work some form of shallow rocks, almost everybody works the shallows. There are also a lot of people that work the north end, but the weeds can be pesky. All major points will be crowded as well as the off shore reefs. Maybe slim pickings this fall if the bit doesn't get going though? What do you think Derek is the bit getting any better last couple of days?

Still slow. Should be good next Friday,Saturday and Sunday nights. The pigs come in with water temps around 44-46, prime temp for tullibee spawn. Still early right now.

Are you saying there are a lot of weeds in the Wealthwood to The Red Door area? What areas do you guys recommend without giving out your honey holes?

I only hope there are a few tulibee left in the lake. Some of the cummunity spots to get you started are big pt, indian, hunters, as for reefs thats hennepin, 3 mile, the groups out of lakeside, and out of myr mar. Derek, I imagine your out guiding, but if not maybe we could do a little fishing next friday the 18th. Good Luck

The reason I was going to start in the Wealthwood area is because of a few conversations I had with an experienced tourney fisherman while staying at The Red Door this past summer. I hope this was legitimate info. What do you guys think?

By this time every year I have had my fill of Mille Lacs. I know I am missing some of the best action on the lake but the fire in the fire place somehow seems much more appealing.

Yes, you are missing the BEST fishing of the year (normally).

This year seems to be an aboration - maybe payback for the HOT May-July bite. But, even if this fall is a bit "off", overall the fall crank bite on Mille Lacs has been good enough for me to hang up my duck call.

Gotta try though! We will be up Monday night for sure. Hope those water temps drop.

This week should be the tell tale sign, if the water temps hit the mid forties and we start seeing tullibee heading for the shallows. It still might take a few days of stable water temps to bring them in. Last year I had my best outing in November, but last year of course was much different than this year.

I'll be trolling myself into a frenzy starting Friday night through Tuesday night. I hope to get something going and find some walleyes over those 5 nights. I'm nervous, based on the bad reports I keep hearing.

      These conditions will probably save the lives of more than a few fish.

      Oh I forgot to mention is was b*#%hing cold.  Minus 33 Saturday morning and -36 on Sunday morning.  We had to leave one sled behind at the cabin on Saturday and it took forever to get the Solo started on the auger.  Maybe time for an electric.     Nice niece catching day Pro-V!!!

      more slush for you!!!

      My niece got a 28" walleye and a 44" sturgeon the same day a couple days ago.

      That is what we experienced too.  Three of us were up, fished Thurs, Fri, and Sat.  Lots of little ones, sniffers, the type that keep you busy, wear your arm out jigging on.  We only kept 15" eyes and 14" sauger or better and ended up just short of our limit.  Many 14" eyes released along with 13" sauger.  Others indicated a tough bite as well.  There was one group in the cleaning shack that had some, maybe a 1/4th of their catch, in the 16 to 19 inch range.  We fish with fatheads and some frozen emeralds.  Ice thickness-wise, the auger head was just above the shavings pile, so the ice is growing quickly.  Snow on the lake is hard.  Good Luck.

      😫 boy i feel the love here!!!!!!!! interseted to hear what this additional snow did to the lakes!!!!
    • CJH
      That is correct.  We were just up at LOW out of Zippel Bay and as far as we could tell, eveybody up there was out of live shiners.  We were able to stop on the way and pick up live emerald shiners @ Big Dicks Bait Shop in Kelliher.  This was on the 17th, so if you go that route, I'd call first to make sure they still had any.  Fishing was a little slow for us, but it was right when the cold front came screaming in, good luck!

      Thanks for reply, problem is red door isnt letting anyone with wheel house or skid house out to the flat or past the heave,yet. So everyone is kind of pilled up on the first/second breaks. I am thinking once they start allowing more travel it will start to thin out by me. I may give it another week or so and see how it looks.
