Mille Lacs was pretty tough this past weekend. I was graphing a lot of stuff but couldn't get a bite to save my soul. I don't think the storms helped any. Fished Friday night and part of Saturday on the North flats. A lot of bugs in the water, probably too much to choose from for the Walleyes. Caught some nice perch, but that was about it. A pal netted a big Northern he caught off a redtail. Talked to some other folks who were having a tough bite too. The heat, storms and bugs have all made the bite a bit tough. Hopefully it will improve in the next week or two. A stable weather pattern would probably help.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
