Mille Lacs Area Crappies

7 posts in this topic

Are there any lakes in the area that have decent numbers of crappies in them?? No specifics requested. Except maybe the name.

Got a direction, or part of the lake you'd be near?

I'm also going up there this weekend. Leaving the boat behind. Any suggestions for shore fishing crappies on some of the lakes around Garrison? What about marinas/bays on Mille Lacs?

We would be staying on the North side of the lake, but if it were within 45 minutes or so, we could handle that.

My reccomendation would be Borden; which is just up the road from tutts bait, on 18 outsiode of garrison on the way to brainerd. If your shore fishing it may be tricky. Try every where you can get access, lake gets deep quick in some places, also try the inlets and streams between lakes up there. probably not in the yet but I have hade good luck w/ kids there. If you go by tutts, take a look at a lake map and ask Matt where you should go. Good luck, let us know how it went and where you decided to go.

I'd say Farm Island, but I doubt its open. Same with borden. Smaller lakes like Ripple or Spirit with a river at the access should be open.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
