3 posts in this topic

hey guys, im heading up to mille lacs june 16th -18th with the family and am looking to bring my boat up there. it is only a 14 foot alumacraft with a 15 hp merc. but im looking to get in on some good fish. obviously i dont wanna bring out to the middle of the lake where the majority of the fishing will be for eyes, but i'd still like to give it a shot. what other places might some good fish be that a boat this size could handle?

here's the rig

As long as you keep a sane mind about the weather you should be fine. I took a boat almost identical to that out on whitefish chain of lakes and the wind kicked up and I was fighting 2-3' rollers. Got in safely. Be careful and keep an eye on the weather when you go out.

If the wind isn't too bad, you could go anywhere!!! Just watch, and listen for weather forecasts!!!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
