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

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.
