The bites been slow. There are some groups that are starting to catch a few perch but the little ones are still really presistent. There has been limited walleye traffic yet. If you want to go for perch, target deep gravel. I haven't heard much from the flats buts its always worht a try.

Tough bite out there. Tons of lookers and tons of tiny perch to feed on. If you have a back up plan I would use it.

I have a house out on the lake and I am about ready to call the resort and tell them to pull it off. I have decided that I am not going to waste another weekend up there when there are so many other options. I've talked to a lot of people and it's the same story, a lot of lookers, but no takers.

Honestly, it really isn't worth the trouble. It has gone from mediocre during early ice, to very tough as of late. If you're after walleyes (which your FM name seems to indicate) I would definitely consider an alternate lake. In fact, we were at a bait shop in Isle last weekend getting minnows and a customer pointed to the map of Mille Lacs hanging on the wall and asked the guy behind the counter where the fish are biting and without missing a beat he said "Red Lake" with a big smile on his face.

Good luck!

Boy this is bad news. I've got a trip planned for this weekend to the 'Big Pond.' Been looking forward to if for some time. I was hoping to have a shot at catching a few. Oh well, I guess I'll just give it my best shot. The beer will taste the same.

You'll still have a good time Fitz, it's always fun to head up there. If you're willing to move a lot, you may even be able to dial it in. I just don't know that I would recommend someone go out of their way right now to plan a trip to ML if they're dead set on getting into good walleye bite. If that is the goal, there are better options available.

My formula for sucess:

- Make sure you're setup and fishing at sunrise/sunset

- Run and gun during the day

- Have an ample supply of your vice of choice (beer, cigars, etc)

Fishing has been very TERRIBLE.... This is all I have to say about this lake... Perhaps it got fished out? Seems like the walleye population is so LOW....

This winter bite is terrible, I think it has a lot to do with late summer fishing. All the fish that get released die. I don't understand why people continue to fish in late summer and pull thoughs hogs through that hot water. Oh well, plenty of better lakes around to fish and not have to worry about the netting as well.

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
