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.

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.

      After a week of terrible weather the comeback doesnt take very long this time of the year on our favorite lake. Check this new video   https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=714645218901998&id=770784022996799
