I'm new to the area as well, and have been thinking about the same thing (trying to find some crappie action on Miltona). I might be going up there this weekend, but I haven't decided yet. Let me know if you hear anything. Also, if you do go up there the local bait shops are always a good place to stop. If I go up, i'll let you know how we do. If you go up, please let me know how you do. You can send me an e-mail at hoopstar0@hotmail.com

As a general trend on a bigger/deep lake, I would guess that the crappies are still pretty deep.

I will be up there this weekend for sure and will be glad to let you know how we do. We will be looking for deep water 30 to 40ft and see how we do. We have done well the last month for walleyes, but with the season over I will try my luck with some crappies. See ya out there

I have a cabin on the North side of the lake. Sandy beach road. Going to drill alot of holes saturday and see what we find on the aqua view. Sounds like its going to be windy out there again.

Small world after all. My parents just bought a place on sandy beach road. Maybe sometime we'll have to meet up.

As in most lakes this time of year.

Look for the deeper mud bottom holes with in the flats. If you have a lake master map, you can see quite a few of these 25-35 foot holes on Milty. They can be anywhere but they tend to congregate to these holes making it easier for you to find them. the north side of the lake is usually better.

Hey elbinowalleye,

Did you make it out on Miltona this weekend? We decided not to go, as the weather was pretty bad on Friday when we wanted to leave. Anyways, I was just wondering how the fishing was. Also, is anybody plowing roads? or was it pretty difficult to navigate?

Thanks in advance.

We managaed to get out there on a 4 wheeler, but it wasn't easy. We basically waited until the snowmobilers got out there and started packing the snow down, then it was easy. Got out to some holes on the North side flats and did pretty well. Alot of perch of course. Dozen or so crappies and even a few eyes which we threw back right away. They were a nice suprise and fun to catch on Crappie jigs and 2 pound test line. I think we had the whole lake to ourselves. It was great! Good Luck if you go this weekend. If you have sled you are money, but a wheeler works too. Sorry for this novel.

Yeah I know all about the perch, we were up a couple weekends ago, and couldn't keep our lines away from them. Looks like we will be heading out in a wheeler, so hopefully by next weekend it will be easier to navigate. How deep were the holes you were fishing in? Thanks for all the info, I don't have my H2O yet so I'm thinking that it might be a challenge to find the holes along the flats.

25 to 30 fow. Yeah the perch get old fast. Wish they were at least bigger. By next weekend it should be easier to navigate around out there. You will defaintly want a gps to find these holes. Makes it real easy then. Let me know how you do. Probably won't be up next till opener and or muskie opener.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?
