Anyone up for heading to Mille Lacs?

Kingfisher and I are heading out early Saturday morning and coming home that night. We're going out of Hunter Winfield's most likely. I have a durango that I can get six in but four is real comfortable. I have a 4x6 trailer we can put gear in. It would be nice to meet more FMr's and have some fishing at the same time. Plus with the price of gas, the more the merrier grin.gif. You can shoot me an email at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net if you are intersted. We are leaving from St. Paul around 4 AM.

Isn't the ice surface like huge broken glass shards after the wind down there by Isle? I saw the pic Waldowski posted, in the ML forum I think, and it seemed like it would be tough going!

I called Hunter Winfields today, they said they had 7 inches in the bay. I don't know that we are hitting the main lake for the reason you just said, but the bay I believe is fine.

Lybacks said on Monday that they planned to let snowmobiles out for the weekend. They checked the ice Sun. night and had 5-6" everywhere they checked. However, with this snow and I heard more is coming on Thursday and Saturday all of this might change. I will call them tomorrow for an up to date report.

It's Kingfisher and I and we picked up a fellow FM'r from this post. Still have at least one seat in the truck open. I can always put up the third seat if needed. Let me know if anyone else is interested.

I'll be up there tomorrow late morning and staying until Sun. afternoon. If you want to hook-up I'll be on a Red Sportsman with the big Monster box on the back.

We're leaving at 4 AM. Do I need to get bait in the cities tonight or is there a bait shop up in Isle that I can use in the morning?

There are lots of places around the lake to buy bait.

I usually like to stop at Prince bait and Marine in Milaca. I have anlways had good luck with their bait and the staff is helpful. It's a little ways south of Mille Lacs but right off of 169.

I am heading up for the weekend tomorrow morning. I plan on staying overnight in the permanent on shore so I can get in some time on the ice for Sunday also. Have yet to decide where I am heading out of. I am familiar with the area around Lyback's, but now I just bought a house at Brandt's, so I might want to stick around that area.

Sand,

The way things are shaping up, I will not make it. I have a crank sensor to do to on Sat. morning. I almost made it with porty and have made it enough, but in the end it not going to work out.

I will get together with you and KF1 on the pond yet this year.

Good luck!

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
    • eyeguy 54
      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
