Windy, Windy, Windy, Windy!
Lake Mille Lacs is the 2nd largest lake in the state, and when the wind picks up she shows her true colors.
The last week has had some crazy weather, but the fish just keep biting!
Our water temps have not moved a whole lot. Some rather chilly air temps the last few days so keeping it relatively steady. Still hovering around that 66-69 degrees
Our walleye fishing continues to be nothing short of spectacular. The bass have continued to bite as well. The Muskie fishing has been a bit slow, but we are still finding some in the shallow rocks and weeds.
The best depths for walleye are all over the board. We are still catching them in 8-18 feet of water, as well as out on the gravel/mud flats in 24-32 ft. Our evening hours will and always will be the best time of the day to put a walleye in the boat. We have been pulling in 18-22″ fish consistently, but the over 24″ fish .have certainly not been too shy. Bobber fishing, lindy rigging, bottom bouncing, and throwing artificial’s are the best methods right now.
The bass haven’t made much of a change from last week. Still wrapping up their spawn. Most bass are now post spawn, or still spawning/on beds. There’s still a few pre-spawn smallies to be found, but getting harder to come by.
The best methods for bass are gonna be drop shotting the beds if you wish to bed fish, jerkbaits when in search mode, and the ned rig. Some on swim baits as well, but those baits have the slight advantage.
