There is a fishable population of Largemouth in the lake. You rarely hear of them though, a not many target them. A couple of years ago fishing a multi-species tournament one of the guys brought in 4 fish that came close to a 5 lb average.

I've caught a few nice 3 lb largemouth in Wahkon Bay and the south end bays seem to be where the most action is at. A bass pro I know who loves smallmouth fishing the big pond said he catches a fair number of largemouth as well.

Is this all really a suprise? Trophy pike, muskie, smallmouth in Minnesota's Walleye Factory???? Now largemouth too! If anybody has property on Mille Lacs they want to give me (or sell for $100) let me know! Ha!

A few years back I decided to fish for bass and started to fish cove bay and boated several real nice largemouths that averaged 3 to 4 pounds. so when the big pond is just to rough or the eye bite is really slow I grab the bass gear and start flippen and pitchen.

I have also caught some really nice largies in Cove,Isle, and wakhon bays while smallmouth fishing. They usually come on soft plastics or bass type spinnerbaits. They come out of the bullrushes and whack the bait. Also some on docks where weeds are close. There was an article around 1997 about a huge 10 pound largemouth caught in (Contact Us Please). Does anyone know how to get that article or where it was published? What a fishery!!!

I've caught them in Wigwam Bay as well, late in the fall. One day that's all we could catch, we didn't even see a smallie that day. We caught around 10 and had a solid 3 pound average. Big spinnerbaits in the reeds did most of the damage.

They're in there!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
