Well, i have fished northerns many times on the big pond. Your best bet would be in Vineland Bay. Fish in water from 8-12 feet deep. The best luck i have had was using sucker minnows. Sometimes takes time, but when they bite it's a blast.

James_Walleye, i wouldnt expect you to have much company if you are fishing for northerns. Most of the people that go to Mille Lacs on opener are after the tasty walleye. Dont get me wrong, there are still people fishing for northerns. But in Vineland Bay, you shouldnt have much company, its a big bay. There could be people fishing walleyes on the outside breaks of the bay. There are a couple of good walleye holes out towards the main lake from the bay. For the most part you should be good, so enjoy your weekend and have fun. Just a reminder, all northerns 24-36" have to be released.

Keep the lines wet.

I must say I'll be out there this coming weekend for my favorite game fish. We'll be out tossing some bucktails, spoons, and cranks. Maybe have to mix it up with some suckers if the bite isn't happening. Let's just pray for a little sunshine. I'd like to hear how everyone did for pike up there this weekend. I'll try to make sure I get to put a post in as well.

I've already got a couple in the 30" plus range in the mississippi river system. I've got the fever and it isn't going away anytime soon. Headed to red lake the weekend after for the same kind of fishing. On to Kabetogama the weekend after for the same thing. If I'm not broke now I will be soon. At least I'll be broke with a smile on my face.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
