excellent mille lacs spot

Recommended Posts

I've been fishing the north end of mille lacs now for about 3 weeks straight. Matton flats have been on fire. especially the very tip of the finger. it was common to get daily limits and many fish in the 25-28" range. I would expect that the fishing will slow down, it is that time of season.

Is blanch sending us on a wild goos chase ?

OR

Is he telling the truth and TRZ is trying to decoy us away from his hot spot?

Even though he may be trying to decoy people away from his spot, you know that now there will be people out there trying it.

I fished Matton a week ago or so now, and can add that the success I had was not near what blach is sayin! Missed 2 fish on rattle reels in 36 hrs of fishing, i was not on the exact location he is referring to, but I was on the flat and did not notice anyone out there every day.

Yeah, but I don't know too many people, honest or not that will give up a good fishin spot. It's like when your out on the big lake, you got a fish on, your buddy picks the net up and raises it into the air, suddenly you hear 3 outboards fire up, and before you know it you can carry on a conversation with people in 3 different boats, and of course the fish have stopped bitting now. Can anyone relate? grin.gif Good Fishin guys

This reminds me of a time fishing on big sandy with my brother who doesn't fish that much. I was working off gps to hold us on a spot in the wind and it was a bit tough but we were catching fish. He saw the marker buoy's in the boat and asked why I didn't use one. I told him that we'd have a ton of boats on us if I did. He didn't beleive me. Just before we left I threw the buoy out and before we could get ready to leave there were 4 boats within wispering distance. He was shocked.

Bouys and windy days... I remember one time my buddy had a flat black bouy he used so people couldn't see it. Funny thing was it worked so good we blew by it and couldn't find again! grin.gif The funniest thing was the next morning we went back out in the general area and there was 5-6 boats out there. Lo and behold, guess where they were fishing!

Funny thing is the one I threw out when my brother was with was flat black also and it still attracted a bunch of boats.

laugh.gif Thats good thinking, make sure that you throw the marker out in the hole inside your fish house, then they won't see your hot spot!!! Keep us posted on how it works!!!

      Lake Osakis is a good lake with a few good resorts.. that can a an option for you...  it has the small mouth bass and sunnies you want...  but it's not way up north as you might want..

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
