Question for everyone.... I am taking my girlfriend to Mille Lacs for her first time ice fishing we have gotten a sleeper from Lybecks. Can someone please inform me on what to expect? I have read alot of differant posts on how they are bitting and they don't scare me none. How is Lybecks houses? locations? As for the fishing well guess will just go and find out and hope for the best.

Lybacks is an excellent resort, and they have their houses out in pretty good locations. I would hope you are in a deeper area - maybe you can request this. And if you are taking your GF out for the first time, I would highly recommend bringing an underwater camera, cuz even if they're not biting, she will be entertained just to watch them. You can rent one of these if you don't have one.

Lybeck's is located on the south shore and has plenty of structure to find fish. I have talked to the man many of times and is a very nice man. Odds are you will be on a deep rock reef or out in the gravel. Good luck!!

Great structure and grant resort, other then his opinion on Muskires. He will put his houses on the best spots and moves them as needed. We have hit some of the same structures as his houses in past years and have always done better then others. The Camera will really help as not only will that give her something to do but it helps when some one knows how the fish are biting.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
