WATER CLARITY

6 posts in this topic

Could someone who has been on Mille Lacs recently please give me some info on the water clarity. I am thinking about trying to scuba dive in Mille Lacs and would like to get some idea of the current clarity. Thanks.

Over this past the water was pretty dirty due to the high winds. I was on the north end flats and it was pretty stirred up due to the winds. If I had to venture a guess, I would say you could see your bait 3-4' down.

i used to scuba dive mille lacs from '85 until about '90. its a blast because there is so much stuff down there. its just like a treasure hunt! i found a 15"x12"LH prop for a launch with a date stamped on it of 3-13-39, plus a colman stove, ice chizel, lures and lots and lots of anchors. all my friends had free anchors...haha. the best spots i found were indian point and 3-mile...big rocks with lots of snags to get anchors. however, the best time to scuba it is in the spring before opener. somedays we had almost 20' of visability.

regards,

My brother and two brother-in-law's were scuba diving there on Saturday. About 3 feet of viability from what I understand, (NE end on a rock pile).

They found 2 poles, tip up, anchor, zippo, ice skimmer, and some other stuff I can't remember.

Sounds as though you should take up scuba diving instead of going to Cabela's to restock the fishing gear.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
