5' hump in the middle is a rick pile. Water levels would have to be down quite a bit to catch a prop on it unless you have a really BIG boat.

Most either anchor near it or just float over it when targeting eyes. Good luck.

I'm not sure if there are any hazards on the west side of the lake, but I am familiar with the area I marked in red. whistle

That red section should stretch all the way over to the east shore. Very shallow and a gravel bottom

Yes, you need to be careful in that entire area. It is tricky but you can troll between those points without hitting anything. Getting in there is the key and I approach it from the south on the Sportsman's Point side. When I had my issue with the rocks I was coming along the shoreline from the west heading towards that red zone. Didn't know the lake at the time and was in the shallow rocks before I knew it...and I was just idling along. Bent up the aluminum prop. Live and learn.

The southwest corner, I've hit my prop on rocks and the south central bay, near the access there are a couple huge rocks about a foot under the surface, and then there are a couple near stony point that are in shallow water

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
