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.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.  
    • monstermoose78

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....
