11 posts in this topic

Heading up to Mille Lacs this weekend for the full moon bite. Will be fishing the west side of the lake. Looks like I may have an open seat, as a couple of guys planning on coming with me had to back out this week. We were up for the October Full moon and had good luck.

you can email me at krmrappr@smunet.net if you are interested or call 712-260-4700, or just reply on this post...

No problem. Maybe another time. I would like to get up there and ice fish; havent done that for quite a few years. Have 3 daughters that play basketball(I coach one of their traveling teams), so the winter time is pretty busy...

Sorry but I can't make it up this weekend. Man am I sorry. Wife has cold and 71/2 months along. Bad combo. I'm going to try to hit Tonka Sunday for a few hours. All the time I can afford. Will call you Sunday for a report. I may try to get up next weekend and want to get a report. Make sure you have a charge on you bow mount and take your charger. I only made it up once through the entire fall bite...I'm so sorry. Time should free up after #2 comes in January right?? Good thing I fished as much as I did when I was single.

Chris,

No problem. Am charging my trolling batteries tonight. Looks like the weather will be pretty good. Good luck with the little one. As far as time, I dont know if you'll have any more free time in the future, it doesnt seem to work that way with the kids. I figure I'll have plenty of time to fish when the kids are grown and out on their own(hopefully)....

I could go up late saturday, or in the morning sunday! I am going to the Wild game saturday night, but would be willing to drive up afterwards if you are going to be out late. Otherwise I could drive up sunday whenever you are planning on going out.

Kurt,

that would be fine with me; I usually stay out pretty late unless the bite is slow. I will probably go out an hour or so before dark(4:00pm or so?) both nights. I will have my cell with me, so if you wanted to drive up after the game or on Sunday, I can be reached. You can catch me at home tonite at 712-262-5795 or on the cell at 712-260-4700. I am staying at Twin Pines. Let me know if you would like to go..

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
