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.

by the way, thanks for your weekly fishing info! smile.gif

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!

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
