I like to use the perch colored, glow varmit for a jig and plain red hook on set-line. Its probably not a majic cure for tough fishing this year but it seems to work as good as anything I have used in the past on Mille Lacs.

I have found great fishing with a fluter jig silver/green and gold/red. They are lite and have a really good action to them. It's been my best jig all year for walleyes and perch tiped with a minnow head or lots of grubs 5-10

This time of the year a plain red hood with a lively minnow on it can be the ticket. I also like perch colored lures because they match the hatch but sometimes using those exotic colors will get the fishes attenition.

I hate to say it, but a lot of people were singing the ice fishing blues on ML this weekend. Aside from the warm shack, warm food, warm drinks, and warm truck, there wasn't anything much to crow about. I hope things change next weekend.

In closing i have to say there are fish out there to get them to bite is the challange to see them on cam is awesome but i think i would go else where to fish this ice year because the pond has millions and millions of small perch in it just drop a cam you'll see .Happy fishing to all and i hope come opener this all changes or you are in for a ruff summer up there. Go to another lake not to take away from the pond but this year like years i have seen befor in my years fishing up there it wont get better any time soon maybe by mid summer for now there well fed for a long time.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
