Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

Mr. Pike1

I did not get out this weekend as I had to work. I am very interested in the report. I hope the bite turned on out on the big pond. It has been two weeks of very very poor fishing.

Sounds like Minmo had a bad day on the water? Fishin all day for 3 non slot walleyes would kinda suck...when on mille lacs that is...

I agree with minmo. I'm sick of hearing people complain about the lake, indians, slot, etc.. If you don't like it move to ND. I caught some beautiful fish on Christmas eve. 18 to 24 inches fat and healthy and had a blast catching them. 23 feet on a thumper spoon w/ minnow head.

Shut up and fish!

Would also have to agree with minmo and fearme - so many have been spoiled on Mille Lacs that the true prize of catching ANY walleye has been diminished almost completely. 3 5-pounders is more walleye than many people will catch in a lifetime.

fearme - where in ND did you fish? I'm heading out there Tues for the week. I'd be curious to hear your report.

Thanks.

I get tired of people stating how sick and tired they are of listening to other people whine about Mille lacs. If you don't like it, quit reading the Mille Lacs Forum

Here goes...(a partial re-print from Lundeens):

"The ice thickness has improved a little since last week - up to 11 inches on much of the main lake. There are still some pressure ridges to be
reckoned with...

The walleye bite has improved A LITTLE - scattered reports of multiple fish (a decent ratio inside the slot!) have been trickling in, but most are still finding the walleye bite slower than normal. 18-22 feet has been the best range, 25-28 the next. Vineland Bay, Garrison Reef and 9-mile flat are good starting spots. Shiners on a set line are your best bet overnight, and Hawger Spoons or Weasels tipped with a piece of a minnow are tops during the day. There are a ton of small perch with a handful of jumbos mixed in coming from the South Bays. Northern fishing is decent inthese bays too..."

I guess you guys missed my report. I left one I guess you better read it again. If your are looking for a spot forget it! Find your own spot.

Blaze the only time I've been in ND was to see Metallica in Fargo in 92'

Was out this morning out of Mac's Twin Bay. I was in about 18 feet of water and caught a few perch (NO SIZE! only about 6 inches) I moved to about 25 feet and could have stayed there all day and cought small perch however had to head home. I have a perm up there and plan on hitting the lake EVERY Weekend so I will be posting more!

DNR stopped by when I was in the portable and stated that people were catching ALOT of fish (perch and eyes!) up in the shallows (10 feet) this all being over Rocks. NOT GRAVEL though which is what I was over.. Jiggin fat heads! I think I am going to check that out next weekend.. Look forward to reading the postings from this weekend to see what others have done!

I fished on Sunday from 7 until noon. Started out east of Sloppy Joes in 21 fow and caught one small walleye. Marked a lot, but no takers. Moved in to the rock reef just in front of Izatys in 8 fow. Dropped my lure down the hole and almost instantly saw a 26 to 27" walleye eyeing up my bait. He flared his gills a couple times but never got the bait into his mouth. Then he lumbered off - never saw another fish. I'll be back up there New Years eve to give it a better try.

Was up on Sunday 12-29-02, out of Lyback's sitting in about 16-17 feet of water, 2 tiny walleyes about 6-7 inches a piece. Fished from 7:30 til about 2:00 and those were the only fish caught.

Hope you all have better luck then I, have a happy new year...

i'll be back friday, this time i'm going to change it around and get there about noon and stay till dark or a little later. I'll leave reports.

My permanant is in 19 feet, over gravel, at the edge of Hawkbill reef. I fished it Friday through Monday morning and caught 3 walleyes (2 slot) and 8 jumbo perch.

I saw fish on the FL-18 most of the time. I tried different sizes/colors of hooks, fatheads, shiners, rainbows, and 2 sizes of crappie minnows. I also tried many different colors/sizes of jig spoons, tipped and untipped. Nils Master Shads, jigging Raps, Halis of various colors, waxies, eurolarvae, and panfish jigs of many sizes and colored, down to the very tiniest. I hit 'em with the whole armada just to try and figure 'em out.

The only pattern (obvious) that I came out with was that the agressive fish came around sunrise/sunset and that the blips (which I assumed were perch) were more excited by an agressive action.

I know I should move around, but I was happy as a clam to be in the permanant and I thought I'd see if I could outsmart the fish.

End report.

      outdoor1,   My experience has been that this approach works all the way through October.
    • gimruis
      That's quite the mixed bag!
    • gimruis
      I'm one of those every Tom, Dick, and Harry's.  And I can tell you with 100% positivity that I'm not out there making noise, stinking up the woods, or pushing everything off its normal pattern.  You just generalized every gun hunter into the same group, including me.  I don't make noise, I cover up my scent, and I don't leave my stand at lunch time to go in and push everything off its normal pattern, Wanderer.  Yes, I know hunters like that too but most of the hunters I know aren't like that.  In fact, very few are.  And I can tell you that there are some idiot archery hunters because I know them.  They sling arrows around at 50 yards trying to down deer without practicing which is completely preposterous.   I think what Fins n Feathers is trying to say that technology has advanced our sport to be more efficient.  I do agree that the younger generation is definitely more lazy and less devoted, not only in hunting/fishing but in life generally (that's another topic for another day).  I for one would like to use something more efficient.  If it results in a higher kill rate, better accuracy, and less wounded deer, I'm for it.  If you don't want to use it, then don't.  If you don't want to fish with 10 inch high definition sonar and GPS screens in your boat, then don't.  But just because someone else is using technology to be more efficient doesn't mean its illegal or unethical.  His example of an open sighted 30-30 versus a 300 scoped mag is a great example.

      I appreciate all your input. I went to Mills yesterday as their starting to put some stuff out. Looked at the hard side gun case and yep I like the protection and price but it’s very big for me I think. I then looked at the clam single sided locker I liked the xtra storage. But your still having to stack rods and it’s not really that rigid. Most of my broken rods came from rods being tangled and stacked and not from being crushed. That being said they had the frabil rod safe. I really liked this one but only downside is it doesn’t hold in line reels that well as it’s not tall enough. So I think I’m going to end up going with a hard sided case. Looking at either the otter, scheels case or similar. If I ever want to buy A TUCR I need something to really protect my setups. I’ll jusg ah e to deal with brining a small tackle bag for tackle and extra stuff. I did look at the flambeau box Rick mentioned and I liked the size and extra storage but it would be a tight fit in my flip over if it would even fit. Anyone have have any experience with the otter or similar hard sided style cases? The scheels case says it’ll hold 4-8 but the otter only 4. Even though it’s bigger I think it would hold 8 no problem.

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨
    • outdoor1
      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?
