MILACS NEW SLOT LIMIT !!!

Recommended Posts

fishmeister_86

TO ALL YOU MILACS FISHERMAN,
I SEE YOUR GOING TO THE SAME SLOT AS RAINY LAKE., GUESS WHAT IT WILL TURN MILACS INTO THE BEST FISHERY ITS EVER BEEN, ITS BEEN ALMOST 10 YEARS SINCE RAINY WENT TO THIS SLOT
AND LAST YEAR WE HAD THE HIGHEST CATCH RATE
IN THE DNR NETS IN THE STATE, RAINY HAS BECOME A WORLD CLASS FISHERY.
AT FIRST LOCALS WERE REALLY AGAINST IT, BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT WOULD HURT OUR TOURISM,BUT ITS DONE JUST THE OPPOSITE, & NOW THE LOCALS SEE HOW IT HAS HELPED THE LAKE & IT FEELS GREAT THROWING BACK SLOT WALLEYES, SO I SAY BE HAPPY, BECAUSE YOUR LOCAL DNR FISHERIES DID THE RIGHT THING. 3 TO 4 YEARS, IF NOT SOONER, THIS WILL PAY HUGE DIVIDENDS.
GOOD LUCK & GOOD FISHING...SINCERELY,
FISHMIESTER

D-MAN,
I AGREE THAT MILLE LACS HAS BEEN & I WILL CONTINUE TO BE WORLD CLASS, BUT I STILL THINK THAT THIS WILL HELP IT GET EVEN BETTER,
AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE LAKE GETTING SHUT DOWN WITH ALL THE WALLEYES IN THE SLOT BEING RELEASED. THERE WILL BE ALOT OF TICKETS HANDED OUT IN THE BEGINNING WHEN
PEOPLE WILL GET CAUGHT WITH SLOT FISH., BUT FISHERMAN WILL LEARN TO COMPLY (THE HARD WAY)

I don't know how mille lacs could get any better than it was before this huge perch hatch. as far as size and numbers go it may have been some of the best walleye fishing in North America. this slot should be no different than previous slots, in terms of helping or hurting the fishing.

Not sure if you have fished Mille Lacs lately, but it is already a world class fishery and has been. Iam sure what we saw this past summer can be beaten? Pound for pound Mille Lacs put's out catches that can't be beat. Iam just glad it didnt go to catch and release,i don't like that the lake can be shut down after the quota has been met which may happen if we have another year like last year.

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      WOW!!!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
