Saturday morning we headed out to Lake Mille Lacs for some great Walleye fishing. Early morning we fished on top of our favorite rock reef in about 23-26 feet, later in the day we dropped off the edges in 27-30 feet. We seemed to be marking large schools about 1 foot off the bottom so we decided to drag an 8 foot snell with an orange Lindy float. My wife Nikki started the day off when she hoooked into a nice 27 3/4'' Walleye. We continued on to catch several 19-21'' fish throughout the day mixing in some nice slots. Trolling with the bow mount at speeds of .1 to .8 mph allowed us to hover over these schools and double several times This seemed to be the ticket as we caught quite a mixed bag of Walleyes. Our plan of attack for the day had been to hit several spots but after landing fish on the rock reef we decided to grind it out there for the day. We heard reports of some fish coming off the flats as well as some of the gravel bars.
After a great weekend of fishing it is now time to change gears and get our game plan together for our upcoming MTT tournament at Lake Winnibigoshish June 13th and 14th.
See you on the Water!
