We were up this past weekend. Fished daytime between 8AM & 4:00PM. We caught more & better eyes on Sat(18) as Sunday(8). It seemed with a little more wind Sunday, that Sunday should have been better than Sat. We were trolling cranks in the basin both days. Did anybody have similar experience?

Thinking of trying Mille Lac on an upcoming week-end. What part of the lake were you in and how deep is the water there. I am usually a jig man but cranking seems to be the ticket on this lake from what I read.

I fished from Noon to 3:30 with my six year old daughter. We trolled cranks for 2 hours with NO luck. We marked a lot of fish, but no takers. Picked up a couple rigging with crawlers though. It was way to warm for a kid in a life jacket.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
