Fishing Twin Pines Resort Area for the first time... HELP!

3 posts in this topic

I've fished metro area and such, but have never fished mille lacs (summer or winter) before. Any suggestions... we got a couple cabins on the ice rented this weekend.

Any tips on bringing up fish on mille lacs?????

thanks!!!

from my experience rattle reels and dead sticks during the night have givin me my best results. walmart carries portable rattle reels that hang on 5 gallon buckets that work fairly well. be prepared with your own lattern in case lights go out in the night or flashlights.

I have been fishing around the area latly with mixed results. A plain red hook and a shiner has been good. Smaller spoon and minnow head or larve right off the bottom to five feet off bottom for perch. Twin pines is pretty good about keeping their houses clean and on a good spot. I have been haveing better luck right on top of the reefs than on the breaks for the eyes. Good fishing yall!!

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
