Planning on taking the kids out tomorrow for a couple hours after school. Any luck on either lake? Also, any roads plowed out either accesses or are we going to have to walk it? Or anything else happening in the area for panfish/plowed roads? I am open to suggestions that will catch us some fish and the kids want to drive out rather than walk. Actually I think they want to be able to sit in the truck in case they get bored. shocked.gif

Thanks,

Andrew

Well, to answer my own question, driving on either lake is not really possible right now. We walked out left from the beach on Big. Tried between 6 and 12 fow with teardrop jigs and waxies. Every spot we tried caught at least something. We found a couple 6 1/2" gills in the deeper spots we tried, but we caught tiny ones everywhere. We didn't stay too long (one of the kids stepped in a hole frown.gif ) but from about 4:45 to 6:00 we probably caught a dozen or so gills and a couple perch.

I was on Big, I dunno, like 200-300 yard from the landing, angled left. We walked. Nobody has plowed Big or Mitchell at all. I don't think I would even try it with a big 4x4, the snow was pretty deep in places.

well with the warm weather, the lakes are slushy, you should be able to drive out this weekend, as the snow has settled and the slush is minimal. driving across the lakes today on my sled felt like I was riding a jet ski.

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      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.

      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....
