Snowmobile Trails???

4 posts in this topic

I know there is a snowmobile forum, but I wanted to post this here also. Are the snowmobile trails around Mille Lacs rideable right now or are they in rough shape? Thinking about coming up for a day to ride the trails and do a little fishing also. I am bringing my girlfriend with, so I do not want to make the trip up there if the trails are not rideable. She will never be able to fish for the entire day, I need to have another activity for her to break up the day a little. Thanks for any help.

The trails are in TERRIBLE shape. We had the one good snowfall early and the riding was GREAT for a couple weeks but not any more. But remember you can still ride on the lake which has allot of snow. This weekend is the Arctic Blast so there will be sledes all over the place on the lake.

I just got back after being in the cities and it looks like we got az couple inches on snow up here and the ditches look OK and should be good for a day or so.

Alright, thanks a bunch guys. I still may come up and fish for the day, and when my girlfriend gets bored, I'll just take her out for a ride on the sled around the lake. Tight lines and deep snow to ya!

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
