Headed up tomorrow night. I'm hoping for no wind and no skim ice. Also hoping the fish are where they were last weekend. Has anyone been up the last couple of days. I can't wait to hit the pond.

Hey D,

I didn't get up there this weekend. How did you do? The lake I live on is pretty large and it's totally frozen over. Did the ice cause you any problems up there?

I would definitely go. Fish very slow and shallow 4.5'-8.5'. You will have the lake all to yourself. I'd fish rocks and also look for weedgrowth that remains fairly high...the weeds will show up very well on your graph. The weeds are holding baitfish and the walleyes will be close by.

I drove past the lake yesterday on my way to Grand Rapids. Terry's Boat Harbor was frozen over but the public landing at Garrison was open and two guys had just launched. This was about 8:00AM. A couple of hardy souls, in my opinion.

I've heard there has been a pretty good day bite off and on on Mille Lacs this fall. I think after tomorrow that Terry's will be open again. The fishing this time of year is definitely worth fighting the elements especially this week with the warm weather.

My last trip out there was last week... I did alright, caught a lot of walleyes, but most fish was too big and couldnt keep them... Seems like this time of year, only the big ones are biting... The ones that are in the slot limit... Geez.... Where are the keepers at?

was out on 11/22 searching my hot spots for perch

fished from 11 am till 2pm, one fish, water was very cloudie vegatation must be dieing off because of the low sun, hard to see bottom in 3 feet of water all of the fish in my hot spots have moved out,water temp 34.7 floating ice patches, puting the boat away, the lake will be iced up next week, its been a very good year,and i feel this winter will be one of the best.

I drove by the lake this morning along 169 and it was wide open but there was some wind to help it out. If there's a breeze, you have a shot. If it's calm, the chances to get a night of fishing in are not very good.

      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.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
