Good day fellow anglers. I find myself up at Mille Lacs for work this morning and I chose not to bring the rig. It's still got a full tank of gas and has retained it's shiny appearance. That being said I'm regretting leaving it behind. I took my mother instead....What you say, your mother. Yea, I know but with pop having passed I figure a miny road trip would do her well. So I have made plans to fire up the old merc on Sunday. THe little lady and I will go to church Saturday night leaving my Sunday open (please understand I've missed a lot of services of late and there's much me and the big guy upstairs have to work out).

But I DIGRESS this is a fishing post for heavens sake so lets get down to brass tacks...In this heat where on earth will a fella find some fish. Is it time to try the old lead core. Leeches, worms, minnows. What's the score here. What's working for you guys. I've been reading the posts and it seems a variety of things are producing. I'm going to become an endagered specie if I take the little lady out and don't produce some fish. She stands a bit under 5 feet but man she's feisty! Anyhow, I'm really just killing time up here in Mille Lacs waiting for my business to be completed. Look forward to seeing you all on the river.

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!

      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
