Mille Lacs Opener

2 posts in this topic

Hello everybody, We had a great start to the 07 year nice weather and good fishing. The water temp over the weeekend hung around 52 to 54 degrees depending on what part of the lake you were on. Reports from Hunter WinField's guests and guides were very good, the North end sand 18-22ft held good numbers of fish on long lindy's with red hooks tiped with leeeches. Also the southeast rocks were nothing to sneeze at with limts being caught going deep in 24-28ft of water on lindy's with both leech and crawler, shallow rocks from 7-15ft put out some good numbers of fish as well with slip bobbers and leeches. If you can't get out in a boat our 200' pier at Hunter Winfield's has bait and tackle with great dock fishing, and for others we do have gas, oil, slips for rent, and a open launch that goes out three times daily.

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
