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?????

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 was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
