Miltona has alot of structure and if you can put your self on a sunken island or on some steeper breaklines, you will find yourself some walleyes. Do you have a GPS or Lakemaster? I know lake master sells a promap series map and has really good details to find the hot spots...

Hey big bucks, i saw a couple of earlier post saying that you have been fishing Miltona lately. I am going up tonight for the weekend. Are you going to be out this weekend?

Probably not unless it's Sunday afternoon/evening. It's girl's scrapbooking weekend, which translates to my wife is gone & I'm on kid patrol. They just aren't that into fishing most of the time. Hopefully when they get a little older, I keep trying.

I was out there last night & got a few. I still haven't managed anything over 15", but before last night I hadn't gotten any over 11" out there, so I'm improving a little. At least I had a few worth cleaning. I've been on the lake five times in the last two weeks & fished probably 7-8 spots. I've caught close to twenty walleyes, but they were either small or really small.

Good luck!

Well we fished Miltona Friday night until Sunday morning and it was pretty slow for us. Manage one 19" on Friday night and then moved spots on Sat. and ended up getting 4 walleyes but all small 14" and less. We fished in 24' to 40' of water with better luck on top in 24' We marked alot of fish all weekend but it just seemed like the bite was off. Dont know if it was becuase of the cold front that moved in or not. The wind was pretty brutal on Sat. to say the least. The boat launches on the north side and east side had open water at both and it looked like someone drop a fishhouse or truck in on the east side with a large area of open water. confused.gif

That's been my experience out there the last couple of weeks, tons of sniffers, very few biters. How did you get on & off the lake then?

Is the NE access passable now or not?

I haven't been anywhere since last Thursday when I was out there.

yeah it looked like you could still get a vehicle on at the NE launch just had to stay way to the left. The ice heaves by shore have been getting bigger it seems with this cold and shifting. confused.gif

I pulled the house off of Miltona on Sat., the north access (Old Sandy Beach access) is in great shape to get on/off, the east access has been a mess since the last warm spell of 38 then it got cold and heaved up big time.

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
