I agree completely now if I could only get your brother in law to give me up to date reports on Mille lacs.

he gives out the info all the time, but having the hot line to him helps

he did say last night that the pond has been very slow this winter (perch is about the only thing biting), but travel out there is at best s*cks. If you don't use a paid road, then you need a snowmobile to get around. 4-wheelers get stuck a lot and a truck isn't even worth driving it out there

Rainy river near where it enters lake of the woods. There is an early walleye season around three weeks before the regular opener. You might have to push the boat across some ice since the edges of the river may be still frozen. Everyone we saw was doing very well. The one thing to watch for is the water clarity. The bite slows down a lot when the water's murky. It's something to check on before you go.

With out a doubt it would have to be low. Hands down it has been the most consistant fishery throughout the years. We have had a few bad outings, but most of the years weve done well.

The Rainy is a major fun spot to hit early spring when the ice is open down the middle till the Fork rivers open up then it gets muddy, fish stop. Keep an eye on the Rainy river forum for tips when it starts then get up there and have some fun. Just done plan on bringing a big boat. something you can shore ice. Nice Eyes taken all the time and even a suprize Sturgeon sparks up the furry. Can't wait.

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
