My advice is to not take the kids to Mille Lacs as the action is few and far between, unless they can have fun ice skating or something else on the ice. The only action last weekend was a few jumbos in 27 FOW after bouncing the small jig off the bottom. There are a ton of Perch around just no takers.

Save your gas money and go to a lake by Hutch! Mille Lacs has been slow this year.

I have to agree. Fishing Mille Lacs aint for the kids. There is several lakes in central mn where you can find some panfish. Or if you want catfish try the chain of lakes in the Cold Spring Richmond area they are a blast to catch through the ice. Just a thought. There is also decent panfish angling on the chain.

take em' to the south side and put a tip up down and pound the pike... small suckers.... small red hooks... on red power prO snells... and if that doesnt work try the perch in 25-30 feet of water just outside of hennepin state park..... and if that doesnt work try malone island.... andc the trenches of islebay at night and sunset and sunriSe for walleyes.... "EXPERIMENT!!!!"

yea, stay south. I'm on the north end off barnicals flatt and it has been the slowest year for me on the north end. Doe island has been producing small slot fish in about 14' to 18' of water.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
