This was my first time there, took my two boys who had never stayed in a sleeper. We caught a few pout, missed some walleyes on the rattle reels and brought home 6 nice perch. Just wanted to say a big thank you to Brian, Cranker and the gang at Sunset Bay for their hard work with keeping up with the weather and getting us plowed out so we could come home yesterday. Will definetely go back again next year!!

I believe the houses are still on Doe's reef. This was our first time on Mille Lacs. We fished out of Appeldoorns from the 22nd-25th. We ended up icing a nice 24" walleye. Caught lots of small (6") perch, they were biting really light, and one small 'eye. Also got 2 pouts on the rattle reels. Had one tip-up that had 4 hits in 10 minutes. This tip-up was set only a few inches below the ice. On the 4th hit, my buddy was putting the line in the water when something took it. The fish busted two of the hooks off the treble, and partially straightened the third.

Also heard of one house that had a 45" northern that was released.

Cranker and the crew get extra bonus points for working so hard through the weekend clearing snow and helping people out. Thanks a lot Cranker, hope you enjoyed the BBQ sandwiches on Saturday night. We will definitely be back for more fishing next year. Hopefully we can get on some more fish.

      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

      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
