      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Wheelhouse and first trip to Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

luv2fish

I have never ice fished Mille Lacs before, and have a new 16' wheelhouse. We had it up on Red after christmas and had a blast. Now myself and a couple of buddies have a kitchen pass for next weekend. We would like to try Mille Lacs. Any resorts out there that cater to wheelhouses (plow me a spot off the road for a fee)? I have a 4 wheeler, but have not pulled the house with it yet. So if there is enough ice I would love to pull it with my truck. Then use the wheeler to check out other parts of the lake.

Thanks in advance

I think any of the 3 sponsers at the top of this page would be happy to accomodate you. You will likely have to pay extra to have them plow for you.

Just as general advice If you plan on pulling the house much with the 4 wheeler consider buying a set of chains for the back tires. They help alot.

Jay at Wilderness Warmth has roads that are being driven out on by half tons, and smaller skid houses are going out, but I haven't seen very many pickups pulling wheel houses at all. The road is good, so pulling with wheeler would not be a problem, tho. See the other posting I replied to here a little while ago about Wilderness Warmth for ice condition and ice road details from Tuesday. Jay will bust the road berm open and make a driveway for a fee, we got a nice sized drive and spot plowed for a 20-spot. Look for his F-250 with big yellow V-plow or a Suzuki Samurai with a straight plow. You will likely need blocking, we've been over by Anderson's reef and toward Mazominee point in our skidhouse, and had a couple-few inches of flooding in both spots.

Why is it that you have to pay for the roads, then pay again to have the piles of snow created by the road clearing? Kinda sounds like a government deal. Kinda bogus if you ask me.

Yeah, it might. But what you will hear on here is that's the way the resorts make some of their money in the winter. PLUS you're getting a custom plow job to your own spot. PLUS gas isn't cheaper for the resort owners. PLUS you don't have to go up there if you don't want to.

Otis, you could always buy your own plow and bring it up if you think that is cheaper...?

Its a service industry, and where there is equipment involved it is not cheap.

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
