I have many interesting experiences like yours Sundie on Mille Lacs. The one that irritated me the most was when I was fishing in a boat anchored and bobber fishing on Mille Lacs. There was a boat driving in circles around me for like a half hour. He was not fishing but just looking at his GPS trying to figure out where I was fishing. He was close enough I probably could have bombed a long cast into his boat. Trying to keep my cool and not say anything, I eventually did because it was absolutely ridiculous. There was nobody else fishing within a half mile where we were. His reply was that he was trying to learn how to use his locator. It's not hard to catch walleyes on Mille Lacs with a bit of common sense.

Sorry to hear that. I will be heading up in the area soon and if I'm lucky enough to find it, I will definitely give it back to you. I hope others do the same. I lost my rod bag once walking off Vineland Bay about 4 years ago...must have fell out of my sled. So I know the feeling. I hope someone finds it and sees this post.

I was on Leech yesterday and I could barely get through the ice without an extension. So I don't think much ice has melted yet unfortunately.

The difference being, I think he said they released the monster bluegill they caught. Great job on the catch!

With the perch down to an abysmal point and such a low tullibee limit late ice does not attract anglers anyway. Of course treaty management is a joke. Anyone who actually fishes the lake knows that. At least the DNR finally admitted it. A limit of 10 tullibee is not biological it is political.


Tullibee are a very important forage fish to keep Mille Lacs a healthy fishery. A 10 fish limit should be placed on tullibee statewide to protect these fish. Like someone already mentioned, 10 tullibees is a lot of meat for someone who is in need of fish to eat.

Maybe the DNR should stop stocking walleyes because they are an invasive species and not native to most of the lakes they are stocked in too.

Muskies are stocked in such a low density in MN lakes that they are actually very good to have in a lake or river. Research has shown that muskie prefer forage that is soft spined fish such as tullibee, whitefish, and suckers. Some studies have also shown they will eat perch as well probably because they are small enough to where their spines are not a factor. Walleye have not been known to be a major forage species for muskie, even in lakes with abundant walleye populations. Although muskie will certainly eat walleye occasionally, the numbers eaten are minor compared to other natural mortality and angler harvest. By having big predators in the lake such as muskies, it helps create a balanced ecosystem.

Wow highbeeze24 are you trying to get this guy a huge ticket? Possession limit is 10 tullibee on Mille Lacs! By the way Tullibee are very good for the lake so I'm glad it's only 10.

I understand some of you are frustrated over this issue. However, the future of Mille Lacs looks very promising with all the small walleyes in the lake currently. Unfortunately, we are our own worst enemy in that fishermen can't control themselves and continue to pound on these small walleyes. Why? Delayed mortality when catching and releasing small walleyes is very high when fishing deeper than 20'. Just look inside the fishes mouth the next time you catch a walleye and see their stomachs hanging out of their throat.

Personally, I haven't fished for walleyes on Mille Lacs for 2 years. I still fish the lake and give my money to resorts to fish for other species, but I don't want to hammer on a species of fish that is on the rebound. I believe this lake will be phenomenal in 5 years if we allow it to happen. I question if that will happen when guys are continually pounding on those small walleyes in deeper water even though they can't keep them anyway. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the info. fishnpole. I enjoyed reading all of it.

I would just like to comment on the creel surveys. I can't tell you how many times over the last 10 years I have heard from numerous fishermen that they always tell the people conducting the creel surveys that they didn't catch anything. Now I'm not saying these creel surveys are absolutely perfect, but for the sake of the lake just be honest with what you caught. Give the DNR a chance to have some reliable information they can actually work with. Doesn't do the lake any good when numerous fishermen tell the DNR they didn't catch anything when they actually banged 50 fish.

I am also on the side that thinks post-release mortality is very high, especially when live bait is used. And pulling fish from the deep in the heat of summer is very hard on the fish. Example- Leadcore and long-lining crankbaits out deep in the heat of the summer.

In an average winter, Terry does plow very nice roads to some good areas of the lake. They do very well maintaining the roads with bridges, etc. On rare occasion, he tells people where they are biting. I remember one time he told me where they were catching them and I bit my tongue because that was one of my go to spots for years.

I have also seen a customer get yelled at beyond belief in front of many other customers for getting his wheel house stuck on top of his bridge. I really couldn't believe it. I undertand it's stressful but doesn't do any good to lose it like that.
