Fishing Report For The Weekend 1/26 thru 1/28

Recommended Posts

The Cranker

Hello everyone,

First of all our condolences are with the family and friends of the gentleman that lost their life a couple of nights ago on the south end of the lake. Life is a very precious gift and sometimes we don't treat it as it is.

With that being said; everyone PLEASE don't risk taking any chances on the lake. Don't speed (15MPH),Don't take short cuts. Always take the marked roads!, Don't drive around recklessly doing spinouts and crazy stuff like that. The lake needs respect from everyone.

Ok, here is my report for the weekend.

Sunset Bay;

Perch and Walleye being caught in the bay and on the reef. In 10ft to 24ft of water. Most of the fish are being caught on rattle reels and deadsticks with a plain red hook. The fishing has been again spotty, with some really big walleyes being caught. Another couple of pigs caught this week out of our resort! We have have now caught 9 walleyes in the past three weeks that have been caught that are over 28 inches! The walleye bite tends to be better in the early morning and evening and nightime. Perch mid morning thru the day.

Shiners, Rainbows, and Fatheads working on set lines with the walleye. Small crappie minnows and larva,grubs on perch. Also a few walleyes on the larva/grub worms!

Fishers Resort;

Talked with Dean, and Dean is reporting that they are getting large fish too. Some are doing better than others on perch. Walleyes are tending to bite early morning and evening and nighy time.

Fish are being caught in 12ft to 30ft of water. Walleyes are going on shiners, fatheads, and rainbows. Perch on fatheads, crappie minnows and grub and larva. Again on set lines!

Hunters Point Resort;

George is still reporting some good fishing on Blue Jug, and the Boot, Eight Mile, and Nine Mile, Flamingo, and Lakeside Reef. Again, staying mobile and moving around on these structures will increase your chances of catching fish.

Fish are being caught on Shiners, Fatheads, Rainbows for walleyes. Fatheads, Crappie Minnows and grubs/larva for perch.

George is also saying their are allot of big walleyes being caught out of his area too!

This weekend looks to be great weekend to be out enjoying Lake Mille Lacs fishing. Call you favorite resort and get your reservations in for a fish house!

Have fun and above all be safe. And also help keep the lake clean pickup any trash that you may see on the lake and throw it into the dumpster.

Have a great weekend fishing!

Fish On!!!

Thanks for the report Cranker. Lori and I are heading up to Appeldoorns in the morning and have rented a cabin for the weekend. We were up last weekend, stayed in a cabin and had a great time so we decided to make the short 2 hour drive again this weekend! I was planning to leave my ATV home and drive my truck out to Doe Island. Any thoughts or recomendations?

Be safe & enjoy life everyday ! smile.gif

Hey Cranker,

Coming out of your place in the AM. Do you get out to the mud much? which is producing better for you, gravel, rocks or mud? just trying to eliminate some unproductive time tomorrow.

MuleShack,

I have been getting most my fish all over. There really hasn't been a significant difference in the depth or structure. The fishing has been tough. They are their but are not biting!

Fish On!!!

I am with Cranker fished today 1.26 all day marked fish most of the day most of which were perch, they didn't seem interested in anything I had to offer. Best luck for me was on a purple spoon with a shiner. Hope everyone has better luck than me!

      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

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      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.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?! 
    • leech~~
      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
