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 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.
