Hot Bite on Mille Lacs 6/5

Recommended Posts


Well there is more good news for anybody coming to Mille Lacs this weekend, we're still having great luck for good numbers... slot fish and throwbacks.

The deep water around Hennepin Island, Graveyard, Bannna, Otto's, The Gravel Bar, and most Flats are great areas to fish, anywhere from 20-29ft of water with leeches on lindy's and spinners during the day and slip bobbers at night. The shallows are still a good option in the evening on slips around Spider Island, Izaty's reef, Hawkbill, Three Mile Reef, and Upper and Lower Twin Islands in 8-16ft, it's been best to fish these spots if there is a nice chop out there.

I guided both Saturday and Sunday night, on Sat. there were three guys in the boat we went from 6-10pm fished 27ft with slips on mud in front of Izaty's and brought back a limit... and they caught 10 more big throw backs, with a few small ones. On Sunday, we only got out for an hour and a half but did real well with 5 slot fish and 10 throw backs.

The fish are biting, so try and make it out here this weekend.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
