Monday or Wednesday???

Recommended Posts

Anyone going upto the lake on Monday or Wednesday of this upcoming week(19 or 21)? Was thinking of tryin to get up there since I have both days off, but don't really know the lake that well. Would be nice to meet up with someone. I don't own a sled or a four wheeler so it would be nice to hook up with someone (especially for that reason) to save an extremely long walk and maybe get out to a few of the better spots on the lake. I would fish all day on Monday, but would have be off the lake by about 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

If no one is going up, any suggestions as to where to go, maybe some place that is letting small SUV's out? I have a Jeep Cherokee that I am able to fit my portable in and all my gear.

Thanks!

Hi PGA Guy,

I get up to Mille Lacs quite often. I am usually fishing the southeast corner a.k.a. Vineland Bay and flats out from there. I have a permanent house but also like to get out in the portable to get away from the crowds. If you are interested in going sometime we could probally set something up. Or I could give you some info on the good spots to go. By the way what course are you at? My brother-in-law is a A1 pro also.

Good Luck, Mark

I can't do it this week but next time you want to go up PM me I'll give you my cell #. I have a ATV. And just about every other ice gadget ever invented. We have been doing really well on the flats. Q

Thanks for all the replies everyone, unfortunately, with work being busy and not much time left before the holidays, I spent both my days off this week doing the shopping thing. It is nice to be done though! With that said, I was not able to get up to Mille Lacs this week so I have no fishing reports to speak of, but after the first of the year, I will definitely be making the trip. Hunting4Walleyes, I work down in the Cities at Edina C.C.

Thanks,

Phil

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay

      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
