YEAH, SEE YOU AND THE OTHER 2000 PEOPLE IN THE MORNING. HEARD A FEW YEARS AGO, A LADY DROPPED HER LINE DOWN WITH THE LEAD DEPTH BOMB AND REELED UP A 16" CRAPPIE.

Can you use gas augers on this lake?

I've never ice fished it before and haven't had a line in it since I was a kid. I probably won't go out on the opener but it sounds like a fund place to try during ice season.

Well don't I feel dumb today!!!

Please learn from my mistake and READ THE RULE BOOKS!

Got a ticket today for fishing out of season.

I don't blame the officer at all and am not mad at him, I should have read the book.

He was pretty cool though I also didn't know about only using one line but he just warned me about that.

Did manage to get 1 13" rainbow.

Please people if you haven't read through the rulebook please do so.

I've fished there a few times during the open water and I was thinking about getting over there soon to try it on the ice. I've heard some conflicting things though and I know this lake has some special regulations, like the no boat/canoe thing.

What I heard was you are not allowed to use a gas auger or a portable shack. Is this true? I'm already aware of the regular trout lake regulations from the handbook (like 1 line, no minnows, etc) but I'm wondering if there are any other special regulations for this lake that apply to ice fishing.

Gas augers and shacks are allowed. Everybody and their mom had one on opener. I brought mine, but didnt bother setting it up cause it was actually pretty nice out on Saturday. But yup, the usual no-no's: one line, no live bait.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
