Me and 7 of my buddies went out of Scenic Bay jan 4-6th. They took really good care of us and Ron there definetly knew how to put us on fish. If they wernt under our house, he could basically point us directly to where they were. Plus Scenic bay is less expensive. Just my thoughts. I'm sure Lybacks is good too.

After looking around on a few minnesota fishing forums and calling around, we decided on Wilderness Warmth. Good prices and I heard they keep their shacks on the fish. Hope this was the right decision! I will definetely let you guys know how it went when we get back. If anyone has stayed at Wilderness Warmth let me know what you thought of them. Tony

Woodduck, You will be very happy with your choice, we store with Jay and Amber and have recommended friends to rent from them. Thier houses are very comfortable and clean. Jay tries very hard to put his renters on fish. Thier roads are excellent, all you have to do is fish and have fun!!

I would second that recommendation on wilderness. They really try to keep everyone catching fish. They are constantly moving houses to put them on fresh spots where fish are biting. You should have a great time!

      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.
