Mille Lacs Opener 2009

Posted by: Ryan Ramacher under Walleye Updated: May 7, 2009 - 12:19 PM
In the days building up to opener I feel as if I am starting all over again, hoping I am not forgetting anything and trying to remember how it all works!  I am really thinking that this is going to be a great opener for all of us anglers on Lake Mille Lacs. 

Look for the North sand to be a hot bite, the best bet is to use a long snell tipped with a leech.  However during the day if the wind has picked up you can try moving to shallow rock piles from 6-12 feet, remember some of these fish are difficult to graph in shallow waters so this will be a trial and error, trust me you'll know if they're there.

Remember opening weekend is a great opportunity to take advantage of the late night bite!  If you do not know Lake Mille Lacs that well than you may be unaware that there is a night ban that takes effect Monday May 11th at 10pm.  If you have a tough time during the day or just haven't had enough try to get up on a shallow rock pile at night, this is where the Walleye's like to feed.

See you on the water!
