Fall Fishing – September 23, 2015
Mille Lacs is still seeing a great bite! The Smallmouth Bass have been abundant on the south end of the lake and anglers are hooking into the action in 8-15 feet of water. Downsizing plastics on drop-shot rigs has been a popular technique this fall. Look for fish off reef edges and areas where deeper boulders are present. Anglers are still getting into some really nice sized fish in anywhere from 4-6lbs.
We have seen a few jumbo perch coming in off the deep reef edges. No numbers to write home about but, we are starting
The pike bite has slowed but, anglers can still find a few hungry fish in the bays. Trolling or casting spinner baits and buck tails has produced some fish on the deeper weed lines. Anglers have also had luck with spoons and sucker minnows under a bobber. The best reports are coming from weed pockets and weed lines in Isle and Wahkon Bays.
The Muskie bite isn’t in full swing yet but, we are anticipating a great fall bite again. With the cooler weather coming in the action for these fish should be picking up soon. The bite generally gets better as the cold progresses and goes well into November. Check back for updates!
