What pool? I am gonna guess 4...Easiest thing is to go to Everett's for any and every thing you need.

Check around online to find more info. on his place. He has a launch, bait shop with bait and all the jigs, ringies and blades you will need. $7 to launch, but worth it in advice since that place changes daily.

Good luck, the bite is gonna get better in the next few weeks.

It is on the WI side of the river. Take a left right after the 2nd bridge. Then a left at the stop sign. Then a left at the resort sign. I don't know the phone #. If you do a search online you should be able to find it.

Good luck and let us know how you did!

Jurban,

when you cross over from minnesota, you will see a public access on your left. Just past that is county road vv I believe. It says hager city with an arrow left on the sign. when you pass the strip club, there is a bridge, stay to the right. You will stop and take a left, going under the bridge, about a mile down you will see a sign for the resort. take a left down the hill and you are there. They have minnows and plastics, along with some advice. Well worth the $7 launch fee grin.gif. Looks like I will be down there as well on tuesday. need to make up for yesterday. verrrrrrry slow bite on friday. tongue.gif

I always land on the Alma side of Wisc. Your Mn license will do just fine.

Troller, the bite would depend on how much money you are willing to spend for bait. shocked.gif

I am passing on the river tomorrow. The wind will be a little to much for me 20-30. I am installing a (used) new depth finder on the boat. To better see the fish i wont get. smirk.gif.. good luck to those who go out.

Three of us went out today, we gave her hell for about seven hours and did not catch a thing.

It really sucks when you are marking all the fish in the world but cant get them to bite.

I did not se anybody else catching anything so all in all not a bad day.

It was sure better than work!

Thanks for all the help guys

Everets was nice as well.

He said the bite was slow and it was.

But was worth the money for a first timer like me.

Thanks again

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      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. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      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.
