Lets try this post again, The bite on Mille Lacs continues to produce nice fish, my clients have have good results with me all season so far. The trick on the lake is to study that fish finder, the fish have been on the move lately. As the water temp warms the bug hatches have kicked in, and the schools of minnows and walleyes are following them. If you don't see the fish on the depth finder you need to keep moving to locate actively feeding fish. I had good results again this past weekend with pulling planer boards rigged with spinners and crawler and leeches. Many of the fish are suspended, and only half way down in the water column. I am doing a lot of concentrating around the mud flats in the deeper water on clear days and trolling over the top during the overcast days, again, watch the graph it will tell you where they are. Places like 7-mile, Sherman's, and Myr Mar Flats all have been producing consistantly. I have also still had good luck rigging with long snells of 9'- 12' with just a plain hook when the fish are hugging the bottom or on the edge of the flat. Check my guide listing under Minnesota fishing guides for a trip today.
