Has anybody been out to any of the reefs on sleds? Wondering how the conditions were way out there. Four of us planning to head north fishing as we go ending up at the angle in a few weeks. With the snow up there I get a little nervous about slush. That wouldn't be good getting stuck ten miles from nowhere. Is there a marked trail from long point yet?

rkelly: You may want to consider checking on the bomber trail that Sporsman's has to there other resort on Oak Island. They keep it open to shuttle people out there to avoid the trip around thru Warroad and Sprag.. Little longer than from Long Point, but it is well traveled by their new Bombers with radios... Kaz

Thanks for the reply Kaz. Does this trail go over Pine and straight north and do they have it marked? If so it must go pretty close to knight and Bridges.

rkelly: It would have to go over Pine because I don't think they would go through the Gap with the current there. I'd check with Sportsman's and see. I guess I shouldn't give the advise because I'm down south where it's warm. I have a place at Wheelers, spending a lot of open water up there and know most of the drivers from Sportsman's. I do know that they bought a couple of new big black bombers last year just for the shuttle service though. It should be marked and well traveled too... and go right by Knight and Bridges as they are in line from point A to point B. They may even go behind some of the islands too. Maybe someone one this site has used it this year and has the exact scoop..Kaz

Your advice on traveling this trail makes alot of sense to me. We were talking about leaving from long point but it would be all virgin riding. I get a little nervous, like I said, about running into problems (like slush). A trail like that would be pretty safe I would think. I would like to spend some time off of Garden as well as knight and bridges. This would be a first for me so I'm just trying to get some ideas...I've never fished the angle in the winter,and I've never fished the south in the summer. Maybe I'll swap this year. Thanks again

I ran the trail last spring and you do go within a few miles of Knights/Bridges. As long as you know where to look you should figure them out.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
