Mille Lacs report

Recommended Posts

Mr. Pike1

The report on the South East side out of Stockys was poor. The ice conditions were 6-8 inches but could not find many Walleyes. We tried Deep and shallow. Where is the bite?

Talked to a buddy yesterday that was out on the 6 Mile. They had 4 over 16 inches and lots under 10 inches. If you are seeing fish on your locator and they wont bite, its those dinks that are trying to figure out the best way to tackle a jigging spoon.

Was also on the Se side this weekend went out of the Isle township access and fised the outside tip of Malone Island found the ice to be 8" to 10" never went much further out than the north end of graveyard. Not to much to report in the way of fish though had one 24" walleye at about 10 pm sat night and one jumbo perch earlier. Was in the sleeper house and I tend to become complacent and lazy when I get in there it's just like being in my living room. I did scout around a bit with little success. Oh well there is always next weekend to look forward to. And as always the fish are merely a bonus

What a difference a year can make! fished all day friday and saturday. ended up with about 20 nice perch but we worked very hard, only got 1 pike with tip-ups out both days. last year i could have used a hot dog soaked in gas and got more pike! didn't fish a hole that didn't have YOY perch. it is going to be a long year with all that food. i wonder how far under our allotment we will be this year!

Mr Pike 1 glad to see you are on the forum. Yes we did not find the biters. Did see one on the camera, and those little perch. This year will be very interesting with all I read out of the Mill Lacs Digest and the "deep water no mans land" netting surveys. There seems to be fish all over the lake. The problem is there is ample forage now as well. We will just have to find a pattern that works. That's what makes fishing interesting. This October/November fishing was very slow but we did manage to get fish in the boat on each outing by experimenting and sharing information, right Alphid and Catch'Whopper! By the way, thanks for grilling those brats and dogs on the ice for us on the ice Saturday night. That was a blast. Let's keep the reports coming and hopefully we will find a way to pull a few in.

Mykal,
That was a pretty good time, no problem! Food makes the painful experience of waiting for fish go that much faster! Well, we can see what ends up happening over the next couple weeks, maybe the lookers will start biting. Sounds like the fishing has been tough for a lot of people out there. Might be heading out there in the coming week with vacation time arriving...

Tight lines!
Catchin'

      Bad electrical connection will create heat.

      I have a metal roof on my house near Cook, I installed it about thirteen years ago still looks/works great. Replaced my shingled roof at home(Pine Island) last year, the shingles lasted 17 years before they were lookin pretty tough. That would be twice I've replaced shingles at home in 35 years.   The major problem I have with steel is when the snow melts off of the roof, it will all come off at one time. If your car, or the door you use to get in and out of your house is under the eave's, you WILL have an issue. Last spring enough snow came off of my roof in one melting, that it would have buried, and I'm sure crushed my truck. The snow drift after that melting was about 10' wide, and 4' deep. You better plow it right away, or you will have an ice drift that you cannot remove. The only other issue, is that when it rains it really runs off of the roof. You will get wet standing under the eaves of your house. The rain come's off in sheets.  You could use gutters or deflectors, but the snow coming off in the spring will also remove your gutters/deflectors, guaranteed. A door on the gable end of your house will take care of the rain and snow problem.   Other than that I think the steel roof is great, it is easy to apply, and is guaranteed for 40 years. I don't plan on ever using shingles again, have converted most of my buildings to steel! With shingles you might get 20 years, then you get to hire somebody to come out, and replace your shingles again. LOL And NO, it is not so loud in my house when it rains, that you can't hear yourself think. LOL And No, I don't sell/install steel roofing, I'm just sold on the stuff.   I can't recommend a good or fair roofer/contractor, I do my own work. I can recommend a good/fair electrician/concrete guy. If you pm me, I'll tell you a plumber NOT to hire.   Jim

      RLG, good to hear and I think that's one of the most important tips I've learned from this forum. Trust your electronics!

      I haven’t seen many posts lately which means I’m not the only one struggling to find fish. I ventured out of Frazer into Big Bay today and fished 20 fow on a shore line pulling a spinner/crawler  at 1 mph and got a limit of nice fish in a half an hour. They hit almost as soon as I got the bait to the bottom. Just me and the lab- - otherwise, we would’ve put a lot more fish in the boat. It was the third place I tried. It’s good advice to fish where you see fish on the sonar.  RLG

      Sounds like a great time, Hoey. Keeping active with old friends is really important...……….as I have advanced well past "middle age", most of my friends I fished/hunted with have either died or quit the outdoors pursuits. Bummer. However, Thursday I head to Morson with one of my remaining partners to spend a few days at his place at Sportsmans Landing, always a good time. That part of LOW is really fun! Endless rock humps to fish, and little traffic. A couple years ago, I got my bud into jigging raps and similar lures. Big fun jig rappin the sand flats in that area. And usually, we catch a few crappies for a great meal. One observation  after many years of fishing LOW north and east of Big Traverse involves the rock humps.....anyone with thoughts on this, please weigh in. In big Traverse, the rock bite peaks in July and slowly peters out. There are still good days, but by late August, you have to run and gun to find fish on the rocks. However, in Sabaskong, Little Traverse and areas north and east of Big Traverse, the rock bite stays very strong. On Whitefish Bay, my best rock fishing was the last couple weeks of August. My thought is it is because of the pressure on  the US side and the lack thereof on the Canada side. Opinions? Good luck.

      I was fishing 18-25 fow.  I cruised several humps that topped out around 17-20 fow and found fish on about 1/2 of them.  I only fished spots I marked good numbers of fish on them.   By horizontal I mean either making long cast and snapping the jigging rap back sharply or trolling 1- 1.2 mph and having enough line out that there would be a little slack before my next snap of the rod at that speed/depth.  You don't feel the hit.  The fish is just there on the next snap that then turns into a hook set.   I've also fished them vertically but many times the more horizontal presentation works better.  At least for me.   I caught fish on both 7&9 sizes.  But the 7s are easier on my arm with repetitive snapping of the rod.  These fish heavy and I've fished them like this in more than 30 feet of water. Metallic perch was the best color for me this weekend followed by rainbow trout or chartreuse.   Even caught several pike and crappies doing this type of fishing.  Moonshine shiver minnows work well too.  They get the nod when there is most on the bottom.  They fish cleaner that the jigging raps.

      when was the most recent time it started normally?   You did start mixing oil in gas when you disconnected the injection system, right?

      I have a 1984 40hp evinrude, when to start this year after it has been sitting for 5yrs. It was drawing so much juice that it melted one one the terminals off. The only thing different is I disconnected the oil injection system because it was in constant alarm. Did this after talking to the service dept at a outboard motor dealership. Everything else is the same, when i parked it would turn over with no problem, now hard turning. Anyone have idea i am out of them.   Thanks
