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 didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      Launched out of McQuade yesterday ,,,, Been fishing the big lake since feb 18th ,,, Had lots of company out in front of the Lester as word got out that the fish were biting ,,, Not a stellar day fishing but it still beats work

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
