Is the southeast section of Mille Lacs generally considered the best for fall smallmouth fishing? I’ve got a trip planned with a buddy from Iowa from September 22-24 and I’m trying to find lodging. I think we might just pitch a tent as long as we have an electrical outlet to charge the trolling motor batteries.
I’ve never fished the S.E. section. In October of 2021 I made a few trips to the northwest section and fished the Garrison reef. The size of the smallmouth was very good and numbers were okay but not great.
I’m thinking of reserving a camping spot at Beachside resort in Wahkon. I would be nice to be right on the lake instead of one of the two nearby state campgrounds. I’m open to other suggestions. Thanks.
