Not sure of the resort we're going from, but my brother just made a reservation from a resort out of the SW corner of the lake...said their houses are about half way out to Spirit Island. Mentioned a solo guy Monday caught seven eyes in a afternoon in 25' of water right next to one of their houses. Don't know what he was using for bait.

Mostly we've been doing the best on fatheads on the south side of the Lake, 1, 2 mile and the gravel. All-though, we did have 1 good weekend on Fletchers flat using shiners.

I've fished this area quite a bit in the summer and it is good usually all summer. Never much in the winter. Just out of curiosity, where is Fletchers flat in relation to spirit and Andersons reef??? Thanks

I just happened to have a map right here as we're making our first journey to Mille Lacs.

Fletchers is almost straight north almost to the opposite end of the lake. It's in the midst of Fishhouse flat, Barnacle Flat and Pantry Flat.

I also have a house with Jay at Wilderness Warmth...rumor has it that Jay is hauling the perms out around Kings Hump on Wednesday. He wanted to give the heave a couple days to heal. My Dad will be fishing Wed-Fri and I will be there all weekend. We are in a 10x16 brown/maroon house. Herman is the name on the house, stop by and we can compare notes.

What works best in this area, shiners, fatheads or rainbows? Should a guy have some of each?

Fletchers Flat is on the north part of Mille Lacs about 4.1 miles due southwest of Barnacles Resort. Next to FishHouse and Bicher flat.

A small group of us are renting a house from Wilderness this weekend as well... Sounds like the houses have been moved out to Spirit now so hopefully the bite will pick up a bit. I'll be up Friday in a green Sierra w/ a yellow lab running around if anyone wants to compare notes... I got a few beautiful smallmouth last sat out of the portable but would prefer to get on some jumbos & eyes this weekend.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
