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.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
