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.

      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.
