what is going on with mille lacs

Recommended Posts

Guest

all the bad reports about the fishin is really scary im heading up for my first time the 31st my uncle has been going for the past umpteen years always heard how great the fishin was at mille lacs but im getting very discouraged. the guys that are very mobile are still having a tough time catching fish so what does that say for me i will be in a perm and thats probably where ill stay. I dont give a hoot about the slot i probably wont keep any fish anyway i just love to catch em take a picture and release em. i hope to hear better reports soon but in the mean time anyone got any ideas on why the bite is so slow.

Mille Lacs had a major perch hatch that has kinda shut the fishing down for awhile. Some guys are doing really well, some have even taken home limits of slot walleye. But from what I have experienced and the reports I have heard is that you can almost expect 1 or 2 walleyes and a half a dozen or so jumbo perch if you are fishing from a permanent over a weekends time.

Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and Mille had a record summer for walleye, and it had to shut down sometime. Good luck out there.

We've been using glow Gamakatsu hooks with small shiners and medium to large fatheads at 27 feet over rocks. Sundown and sunrise, and change bait every fifteen minutes if you can.

I think this year Dickies has two main roads that should be well marked. They will be able to point you in the right direction, then all ya gotta do is look for the numbers on the houses. You should invest in some tipups if you already dont have them. With 8 guys you can have 16 lines and better your odds big time. Even if you all throw down 20 bucks each and by some cheaper tips just make sure you have the max number of lines down.

Johnsons Portside is right there and they have everything you need from bait to smokes, no beer though you can get that in Isle. Couple years ago I took my girlfriend on Dickies launch and they are nice people and I would think they would spend the extra time to get thier houses on some fish. I will be up there Feb 1,2 out of Big Point which is just North of you guys.

Glad to help, good luck fishin

      Cliff is one of the most forthcoming, informative, and honest posters on this board. Hope he jumps back on soon. He is missed..

      I wasn't exactly sure where I can post this, I believe there is a tournament/contest page also, but since it is ice fishing, I thought I'd post it here.   This is our 8th annual ice fishing contest held on Gervais Lake in Little Canada, MN. The lake is just north of Highway 36 on Edgerton street. We have parking in the beach lot and all around the beach area (walk out only). Portables are not allowed to fish in, but to use as a wind break is fine. We have lots of great fishing prizes including a Clam Stealth Thermal two-man, augers, electronics and many rod/reel combos. Tickets are $20 per hole (two hole max), register online or buy tickets at Joe's Sporting Goods, Hardware Hank Little Canada, Little Canada Bingo hall or Little Canada City Hall. www.lcraonline.org

      John, give me a call or send an email.   Nils head being blade and mount can be adjusted to account for material taken off from being sharpened.  A Nils might require adjustment for a few other reasons,  one most common is a bent mount.  I take care of that when I have the blade. Wanderer knows not to do anything to the bottom of the blade.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂
