MOON PHASE (14%)
Fished last Thursday through Saturday. We boated one 40 inch Muskie. We saw a couple big girls but no luck getting them to bite. One was pushing mid 50s. Fished with big cranks for awhile and got some pike, couple walleye, and a smallie. The biggest pike was bout 34. Pretty slow but a good experience to be on this body of water for the first time.
I will be fishing this lake over the weekend with some friends. This will be our first time here. We are targeting Muskie mainly and we have a game plan for that but We'd also like to catch some fish to eat sometime over the weekend. Since walleye is out of the question and it says no live bait I am looking for advice on where to find perch and what to use. In the past I have jigged plastics and been successful in some smaller lakes back in Wisconsin but any advice for this big body would be helpful, Please PM me with any info. If nothing else we will eat some pike but I heard there are some nice perch in these waters and would like to get on some.
Thanks In advance! I will post a report on how the fishing went.

Got out to Mille Lacs for pretty much the last time last Saturday. Fished the mud, we didn't have the luck we have had out here the rest of the year. Between the 3 of us we caught maybe 20 fish, nothing over 22". Fun none the less.
