We tried everything this last weekend. All but 2 fish came off a plain red hook and a bobber. Also Shinners were the best.

I don't know how the fishing is on that side of the lake, haven't been over there at all. But, we will be up a appeldoorns resort the 7th thru the 9th checking out the fmers event. I have been fishing mainly the south end of the lake and the west side. Have also had the best luck on a plain red hook under a ice buster bobber with a fathead instead of a shinner. Also have had some luck jigging with different colored buckshots. Mostly the smaller ones 1/8 oz. in red or silver. Good luck up there hope this helps.

The few 'eyes that I caught Sunday before my vex quit on me were all on a number three perch jigging rap. All of our jumbos were on pink and white custom jigs and spin jigging spoon tipped with a minnow head.

Hey Walleyechaser,

Not being harsh here, but take a Gander at the 164 pages of information at your finger tips. There are at least 100 posts of what to use, where to fish, what tackle, depths, etc. You aren't alone, we see at least 10 posts a day on non-regulars asking all this which is fine. I just wish they would take the time to read because all the information there is at your fingertips. Good luck and please read the posts of the past. We don't have to reinvent the wheel here.....

Your best bet would be to talk to the resort owners where you are going to stay. They will have all the updated ice conditions and bait and tackle to use for the current bite. You could also search the Mille Lacs forum and find out something else that may help.

Hey Spankster,

Not being harsh, but some people have dial-up and it's a lot easier just to make a post and get some information. Then to go back and look through 164 pages of posts. If people don't want to answer the question being posted just move on. I for one have been helped by many who took the time to give me what they think is good information even though they may have given the same information to 10 other people on 10 other posts. I thank them for that.

If you just read all the posts for a few days, you will then have a pretty good idea what is happenning.

This year I have had pretty good luck with a JB rattling varmit tipped with a minnow head for jigging. On my tip ups and rattle reels at night I have been using a medium shiner on a red or regular colored hook approx 6-10" off the bottom.

The jigging method I have had the most luck with has been letting it pound the bottom and then jigging it upward a few feet. If you are in a house and jigging, dont be afraid to set a deadstick out with a shiner or fathead about 1' off the bottom.

If none of these ideas work, maybe a change of color,size or a different jig would be worth a try.

Good luck.

I have good luck with buckshots, pink/white frostee and green/white glow weasals for jigging. For a set line I like gme-n-eyes and blood red hooks with a fathead. I don't use shiners much as I get sick of them dying. Good luck to you. Don't forget to have some waxies or eurolarve with as well. Perch and eyes love these on a jigging spoon, especially during midday!

Walleyechaser, if you really want to get on fish then I wouldn't hesistate to hire a guide from one of the resorts. You can learn alot from the posts here as well but if you really want to get on some fish on a consistent basis hire a guide for a half/full day then go out and see what you can do. It is big water and alot of us fish it regularly and can give you a few points/tips/depths ect: but if you realy want to have a quality exerience then get a guide for a day and fish with them. They can improve your odds quite a bit over going out and just plunking down somewhere and fishing. I have had many days where I have caught a ton of fish and turned around and came back and fished the same spot and got nada. I hate to say it but even when you think you have a good thing going you are at the mercy of the weather. Hope all pans out for you and you get those biggins!

Getting the fish out of their comfort zone will be the key for you. Working your presentations well above the fish will get you a lot better end results (i.e. fish in your pail). For jiggin', Buckshot Rattle Spoons tipped with either a minnow head or eurolarvae is tough to beat. For dead-stickin', keep it simple and go with a small float, plain red hook and fathead minnow hooked through the back right under the dorsal fin. Also, a way to improve your odds is to use a 18 - 24" flurocarbon leader above your presentations.

Good luck!

Just want to repeat what i said earlyer wich was you folks here are a great help for guys like me that dont fish the big pond no more then 3 times in the winter do to the fact its a 6hr drive from where i live. The things you have told me here makes me feel i have a good and better chance of finding those eyes and trying out different rigs instead of just plan hook sinker rigs that ive used in the past on the pond.Dont get me wrong it works for us every time up there. Anyways thanks for all the great feedback and ideas. You guys have a great fishery and friendly people around that pond and on here my hats off to yea cool.gif

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
