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'

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
