Mille Lacs

9 posts in this topic

I am new to the area, and have never fished Mille Lacs. I have heard plenty about it, and can't wait to ice fish it this winter. I am looking to get into some perch and walleyes. I don't have a perminant shack, and no 4 wheel drive vehicle. Am I going to have to do a lot of walking to get to the fishing spots, or do people fish relitively close to shore??? Looking for some general information on where most people park their vehicles and where people would generally start to try and fish. Any info for a new guy would be appreciated!!!

Mille Lacs is a huge body of water. And most of the fishing is done quite far from shore. Dont get discouraged, most of the resorts plow very good roads. You should be able to get where you are going.

JonnyD , First welcome to FM this is a great place for all the fishing info you need.

There are plenty of place to fish on the pond both close to shore and also out a ways.

As for the permant shack there are plenty of guy's that fish out of portables. This can be a lot easier when in search of fish.

I would go back to the post's made in Dec. thru March in this forum and do a little looking and you should come up with plenty of info to get you started.

Best of luck and keep us posted on your adventures.

You should be fine once the roads get plowed, I had my 92 Dodge Dynasty on the ice many times last year, never got stuck, ever going through a few drifts, just stick the the roads, park, and take a little walk and you will be able to ice some perch.

A place close to shore is out in front of the Conoco station just west of Rocky Reef resort. There is a frontage road for parking. Not too far out it drops to 30 feet.

      hurry up ice!

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
