I'm going to be coming down to Garrison to meet a buddy from elk river and i was wondering where would be a good area on mille lacs to spend our weekend eye fishing rough water doesn't bother me to much and was wondering what they have been hitten on. Its my first time on mille lacs so if you have any pointers id be much obliged
right now the fish are in all areas of the lake yet....in shallow,out deep...if you're fishing shallow i,d try anchoring with slip bobbers and a leech if you go out deep a friend of mine is tellin me he's using a 12' snell with colored hooks and sometimes just one bead before the hook around the edges of the mud flats and getting some fish there.....so as to where to fish it seems like a toss up...but heres what i'd do if i was going out. in the a.m. i'd try the 16-18 foot breaklines on the north endabout 10 i'd head out and fish the flat edges28-33 foot depthand as the sun is setting i'd hit the shallow rocks with a slip bobber and a leech....just what i'd try for the day
Mille Lacs has been on fire the past 2 weeks. I've been catching a lot of fish in the 22 foot mark. Using red bottom bouncers and leeches. Might want to try some colored hooks too. I am fishing primarily the north-west side and caught over 16 'eyes last Sunday, the biggest being 26". This is the best fishing I've seen for quite a while. Everyone is catching them here right now.
i didnt make it i was so peved i had a roller fall off my tralier and damaged my hull it took me till today to get going i got out tonight and found some slabs tho still didnt make up for that bs least i found it in hill city and dint have to drive all the way there for nothing o well ill get there
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
