Where do most people fish Northens on Mill Lacs? I am thinking both jigging and tip ups. Thanks for any comments or tips.

Weedy bays on the Westside are the best for me. Start off in shallow weed pockets or transition areas. Also try a line in deep water 18-30ft and fish it anywhere from 2-20ft off the bottom, this takes care of the crusing fish. Suckers and shinners on quickstrike rigs...look out for muskies:)

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
