Mille Lacs Lake, Mille Lacs County

This is actually from last Saturday which was not the day to be fishing on Mille Lacs.  It was raining and blowing terrible there were 4-5 foot waves where we were.  I took two buddies fishing and that is where they wanted to go.  Bummer.  Tried what I would call normal conditions.  It was to windy for spinners, so we pulled out the lead core and crankbaits.  Deep divers, no luck.  Tried different baits from 28-30 feet of water.   Nothing.  So I decided to go in shallow running paralle with the waves.  Ran smaller baits, 14-18 feet of water in the gravel.  We found them.  We ended up catching about 20 cookie cutter walleyes all in the 16-18 inch range.   It was great to see this size fish in a lake that doesn't have any walleyes in it!!

Hit Mille Lacs this past weekend.  Testing out some new crankbaits that will be on the market next spring. We caught lots of fish, and most of them were over 25", with the biggest one going 28.5".  We ran the new bait side by side with a Mille Lacs favorite, the new bait out caught the Mille Lacs favorite 5 fish to none while we were running them side by side, that was nice to see.

If you enjoy catchin big fish, you have to get to Mille Lacs.  Again this year it is on fire.  Still catching fish leeches rigging or bobbers, crawlers on spinners, and crankbaits.  We've been catching small fish in the 16-18 inch range as well which is nice to see for a lake that does not have any Walleyes in it.
