My Dad and I are planning on making a trip to Mille Lacs this weekend. Any suggestions on where we could drive out of and where we could possibly pick up a couple of fish. I know its been pretty slow but any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

Hunters Point on the east side usually has a good road system. After this cold snap I bet they will have a road to the flats going. There is probably a road going to Hennipen Island, if not soon. You can get on it at Hunter-Weinfields right in Isle. I just spent the weekend on Millacs. My worst trip ever on the lake. I live 30 minutes away so I fish it more than the adverage joe but I am getting my butt kicked everytime out this year. Hopefully the perch bite is strong this year or I will be forced to give up and make a trip to Red or Lake of the Woods to try and have atleast on memorable outing this winter season. Maybe I am just down on fishing right now. Still got two and half months of ice left. Anything could happen!

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
