Mille Lacs Lake Fishing Report for Mid July Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, and Musky

Another great season of fishing continues on Mille Lacs Lake! This weeks Mille Lacs Lake fishing report covers mid summer smallmouth bass, walleye, and muskies.

Good reports coming in on the muskies, deep weed lines have been seeing the most action in around twelve feet of water. Large bucktails such as cowgirls are a top producer at this time, as well as topwater baits during the low light periods.

The walleye bite remains good, with many slots being boated by dedicated anglers. The evening bobber bite is the best thing going but, Lindy rigs and leeches have also been producing well on the edges of the mud flats. Fish the points on mud flats, or the tops of gravel bars for the evening bite.

Smallmouth have continued to bite well through the post spawn and into the summer. We are still averaging some very good days, with five pound fish being a regular occurrence on each trip. Large rock and boulders in around twelve feet have been the most consistent. The best techniques at this time are bottom dragging baits such as Neds and tubes. Honorable mentions go to topwater and spy baits.

Good Luck Fishing!
