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.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
