No details yet, working on it….



Wow wow wow:


> For the first time in history, Mille Lacs anglers will be restricted to one walleye, due to the lake’s record-low walleye population.
> One walleye 19-21″ long or one over 28″ will be allowed on Mille Lacs when fishing opens Saturday, May 9, and an extended night fishing closure will again be in effect beginning the Monday after the opener.
> The night fishing ban will be enforced from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., beginning May 11, and extend to Tuesday, Dec. 1.

> Not everyone that visits the Maumee catches their limit, and those that do are using mostly a single offering.

Tip of the Day


If you jig, you need to learn this. This is a good video to learn how to tie the knot, which is supposedly better (stronger) than the regular double uni. Interesting is it’s the braid that gets doubled for a stronger knot:
