Best place to get to the flats

4 posts in this topic

I am headed up later this week and would like to get to the flats. I am taking my son along so I do not want to take any risks.

Guess I am wondering where is the best place to put in to get there? I will be on sled.

Any help would be appreciated.

Keith,

The ice seems to be a bit thicker the further east you go. We were up last weekend and watched a small group heading out to the mud out of myr-mar, but I would suggest going out of the red door. The ice is inconsistent, but you should be fine on a sled.

Yes, ice out on Mille Lacs is definitely inconsistent... If you are thinking about driving, then just forget about it... If you have a snowmobile, then go for it...

Mille Lacs ice has cracked before in the past...

Im not saying this to scare you or be an a---- but when you leave the shore there is always "risk" involved.Remember the old saying,"Ice is never safe"Hope you have a good day catching and not just fishing!c63 grin.gif

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
