Minnesota Fishing Reports:
Walleye fishing has been outstanding this past week on Mille Lacs. Although anglers must catch and release all walleyes, if you want to go bend the rod and have a great opportunity to catch big walleyes, Mille Lacs should be on your list!
The best fishing has been out on the mud flats in 24-30 feet of water. A Lindy Rig and leech has been the best for us, but you can literally catch them on all presentations right now. Some options include spinner rigs, slip bobber, and trolling crankbaits. If the wind is blowing or at times when the sun is low, slip bobbers and leeches on the rock reefs in 5-12 feet of water will provide some awesome action.
Smallmouth bass are also biting like crazy! Rock/sand transition have been really good, and depending on the weather, the fish will be in 2-15 feet of water. Casting tubes, twitch baits, Texas Rigs, and other methods will but fish in the boat.
