Area fishing report


Mille Lacs: The fishing seems to be improving from what was already good fishing. Daytime fishing on the mudflats is starting to produce a higher percentage of keepers. Long line spinners with rainbow minnows or fatheads are a great way to catch walleyes all day long. Even the afternoon bite has been good from 1-5 p.m., which can sometimes be slow. Evening fishing on the rocks is still good. Garrison Reef or Myr Mar are both great choices.
