Miltona Reports?

Recommended Posts

rangerguy

Has anyone heard any reports from Miltona for eyes, pike or perch? Some buddies and I are heading up there this weekend and have never fished the lake through the ice. Not looking for spots or even areas to start. Just looking for a depth range to start looking for some walleyes. We will be staying in a cabin on the north end near the beach. Thanks in advance to anyone that replies.

Rangerguy - Given the frigid weather forecast I just hope you can keep the holes open. But anyway, I was out last Saturday and I can tell you there's a lot of movement going on - meaning everyone's moving their houses all over the place. Most will tell you there hasn't been a great bite, but there are fish to be had. We moved our house out on a mid-lake hump away from anyone else, got 4 walleyes Saturday evening, nothing to brag about but I guess it could have been worse. Nothing started until 5:30 and it was done at 6:30. During the day the perch will drive you crazy in shallower water, we set-up in 19 feet so you may want to move deeper especially during the day. Otherwise pike are always an option, the weedhump in the west bay is easy to find and can usually provide some decent action. Perch, they are everywhere but the only problem is most are tiny - walleye munchies! Anyway, good luck and have fun...and maybe more importantly stay warm!

Thanks Scott for the report. We will be fishing out of a sleeper 6 man ice house that is well insulated and heated. The only problem is that with these cold temps, keeping the holes open outside for our tips will prove to be challenging. Thanks again for the report. I will post our results from the weekend on monday.

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.

      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
