What part of the lake are their houses put out? Anyone know how far they are put out at this point. Feedback welcome. Planning on comming up after Christmas. If this dont work out, will certainly be checking into Appledorns and Hunter Winfields for a Feb. repeat.

Stayed there last year in mid January and the houses were just out in front of the resort. had pretty good luck with perch and a few walleyes. Just talked to them yesterday and they had two small houses out but they didn't say where. they said that all of their houses will be out by new years. hope this helps.

When people are referring to areas of the lake, what area of the lake would Eddys be considered. I am quite unfamiliar with Mille Lacs, having only fished it a couple of times in the winter. Plenty of time to learn, but hoping to speed up the curve.

Also, we are heading up Dec. 26...any insight into targeting depths, particular structure in the area, set ups would be appreciated. My understanding is the perch bite has been better than the walleye. We are looking for a bite most importantly. Will have portables with as well.

thanks in advance-at least let me know a bit about the locations on the lake when you referring to particular spots, or direct me to a map so I can educate myself.

Eddy's is on the southwest side of the lake. It's right across Hwy 169 from Kathio State Park, which is between Lundeen's/Meleen's bait shops and the casino.

In that area of the lake you might try fishing off Rocky Reef to the southeast. I would start in the morning at 20 feet deep and go deeper (down to 32 feet) as the day went on. I have caught walleyes and perch there last winter.

Thanks for the tips! I am confident that if we have some success, the wife will demand that I go with her. She is feeling a bit left behind, as its myself and three friends this time. jk

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
