Anybody having any luck with Northerns on tip ups anywhere on the lake?

I was up on Saturday and had two with only one tip up out in less than 3 hrs on the lake. One big one that broke my 30lb leader with a head shake as he got to the top of the hole.

I was with my 6yr old and couldn't keep up with either taking perch off or setting up another rod after he tangled up his.

Shallow water, Perch: small teardrop with crappie minnow 1 ft off the bottom, and they slammed it. Pike was with Sucker on a tip up. There were 2 guys tip up fishing about 100 yds from me and they were pretty active, but I couldn't tell you how many.

H20, We will be heading up this Friday-Sunday and we do not have an opportunity to fish Mille Lacs that often,just wondering what part of the lake do you target for Northerns on tip-ups??

Our son has been doing real well fishing in Cove Bay for Northerns. He took his daughter up for the week-end,they did real well at the house, caught walleyes on red hooks with big shiners. Then fished the bay and caught Northerns. They had a riot. Our granddaughter is hooked on fishing.YES

Thanks for the fast response. Hopefully if the perch walleye bite is tough we can take the 4 wheelers and find some pike to keep us busy...

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
