July 2015 Mille Lacs Lake Open Basin Trolling Report: No doubt – the bite on Mille Lacs Lake this summer has been tough! I believe there are many factors contributing to the lack of fish being caught; the overall number bigger walleyes are certainly down, an abundance amount of forage base and thanks to the zebra mussels the water clarity is very clear making fishing more difficult.

June 2015 Mille Lacs Lake Open Basin Trolling Report: The 2015 open basin trolling bite is slowly but surely starting to happen. I was able to get out a few hours the 2nd week of June and found a few active fish. The sign is actually pretty good out there but the cooler water temps (mid 60’s) and unstable weather patterns put the walleyes in a negative mood. Click on link above for the rest of the report.
2015 Mille Lacs Lake Opening Night Trolling Report: It was great to be back on the water fishing my favorite lake and for my favorite species – walleyes! Troy Rahn was kind enough to let me hop into his boat for the evening along with Jackie Rivard. We launched out of Hunter’s Point Resort just before midnight on Friday and motored all the way across to the west side of the lake. Click on link above for the rest of the report.
