My brother was over there the other day fished the east side. He got a nice limit of crappies and a few smaller sunnies.

Check the Mille Lacs forum, there was a nice thread going.

Ann Lake is known as a panfish lake. There are a few walleyes and northerns in it but they are rare. Mostly you can get them at the mouth of the river where it runs out of the lake. I have fished Ann a few times over the years and most of what people are saying is quite true. You can get a decent catch but you have to move around a lot to get them.

If you like panfish (and I don't know anyone who does not) than Ann Lake is a GREAT Lake! However, if you are looking for Walleyes or Pike or Bass or some other species then I would give it a pass. Not to say other species are not in Ann Lake, just that they are few and far between.

I agree with you on that one uncle, i've fished that lake a hand full of times in winter, caught a couple little hammer handles on tip ups, but if you can get into them that lake has a very good population of very nice sunfish. I've been lucky enough to have found them twice, and for 4 guys we limited out on them and the smallest we kept was over 1/2lb, with a majority of them between 3/4 and 1 lb. It's a great lake.

      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.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      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
