Mille Lacs Fishing Report for 09-10-20 - Reeds Mille Lacs Outpost
Walleye fishing has been pretty decent still on the lake. A lot of people are pulling deep cranks such as tail dancers, deep husky cranks, or salmos fishing off the flats in 25 + feet of water. The bobber fishing with leeches or pulling crawlers has still been a fantastic tactic as well.
Smallmouth are starting to put the feed bags on with water temps slowly dropping. Your finesse techniques such drop-shotting plastics, or throwing ned rigs have been the most common. The tactic that seems to be putting the most fish in the boat no matter if your chasing walleyes or smallies is fishing live bait with small sucker minnows. A very easy way to rig up and put large fish in the boat not to mention high quantities as well.
On some of the local lakes, the panfish have been very aggressive as well. Flu flu lures with waxies or crappie minnows have been the most common way. The largemouth have moved to the deep side of the weed edges putting larger profile baits in front of them seems to be the best tactic for success.
With cool nights and early mornings, fishing should continue to keep getting better on Mille lacs. If you are in the area and need some warmer gear or even some simple advice, feel free to come in! We are bound and determined to help you find the gear you need!
