Shore Fishing

My wife will be biking around the lake on Saturday....for whatever the tour the lake is really called.

So I've got a couple of hours to kill. As much as I would like to bring my boat, there won't be enough time.

Are there any places someone can fish from shore, or docks and piers?

Bike around the lake? Thats like the tour de france or something.

If you have a little more than 4 hours and I think you will you can hop on a launch boat for about $30. I think you'd have much better luck. I think some of the resorts have longer peirs. If I'm not mistaken I beleive Paul has mentioned that Appledorns has one.

Good luck and have fun.

Jim

Going around Mille lacs, that's 80 miles of shoreline. You'll definetally have 4 hours to yourself. Make it enjoyable, don't bring any fishing gear, and treat yourself to a nice launch. We'll call it exercise.

Appeldoorns does have along dock but last I checked it was still pretty sandy around there.

I haven't been there in awhile, but I'm pretty sure there's a fishing pier in father hennepin state park. There might be 2 different ones?

Any resort with a cove is cool. I would fish the opening to main lake. When I was a kid, Izaties was a good spot. The mouth of the rum was a good spot also.

Appledorn's, sunset bay looks to be very shallow. I used to fish off dock at night for walleys. Caught a few when hatch was strong. During day I have only seen a couple of bass and one muskey.

Another spot from shore was Malone Island. During spring and fall, it is packed. During summer or now, it would be the first stop from shore for sure.

Good luck!

I dont think shore fishing on Mille Lacs is very productive, unless you want perch. Ive never heard of anyone catching walleyes from shore on Mille Lacs..

Shore fishing for walleyes is very productive. Time of year, weather conditions and technique are key. This is latest story I have read about shore fishing on Mille Laces. It was posted by Cranker and gives you a good idea. I, my self would perfer a boat, but when I was young I had no boat. We did find fish though. Good luck! Crankers Report from Opener!

I've personally caught eyes from shore on the pond. Never under estimate that lake cause it's bound to prove you wrong. blush.gifshocked.gifwink.gif

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
