On this week’s podcast, Bret Amundson and Dan Amundson are joined by Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Regional Fishing Manager Brian Nerbonne to talk about the new Mille Lacs Lake walleye regulations. Brian talks about what the changes to the regulations are and why the DNR made the changes. He also talks about what is affecting the walleye population on Mille Lacs along with some good news for perch fishing. Brian and Dan discuss the smallmouth bass boom on Mille Lacs as well, and whether or not the two species have any correlation as far as population growth. Thanks Brian for helping us understand why there’s new Mille Lacs Lake walleye regulations!
Then the crew is joined by Joe Henry who has another Lake of the Woods fishing report. He talks about what water levels are doing and how some anglers are catching big walleyes in the Rainy River already even though the main fall shiner run hasn’t started yet. He gives us a rundown on what anglers should know about trying to catch big walleyes on the Rainy River in the fall, and why everyone should try to do it.
Randin Olson joins us from a unique location to talk about an aggressive trolling technique he’s been using to catch walleyes in August. He gives us locations, depth and what lures he prefers to catch walleyes in Otter Tail County. He also tells us about how he’s not using any live bait anymore and how it has helped him catch bigger walleyes.
