Had a great trip to Mille Lacs

3 posts in this topic

Went to Mille Lac's on Saturday night and got a guide (Dave) from Hunter Winfield. We were out from 6-10pm got our limit of eaters and each of us got multiple fish big enough to keep us smiling for a while. I think the biggest was 26 and a half.

The most important part of the trip was our guide. Easy going, knows what he's doing, fast getting on the spot, with the rods and taking care of everything. He even showed me a new way to fillet that's going to make that job alot easier from now on.

Oh and let me tell you about getting on the spot. This guy doesn't mess around, we were ON the spot. If you cast your bobber out more than 8ft from the boat no fish. Drop it within 5ft of the boat- fish every 5 minutes or less. There were several times that 2 or three of us were playing fish at the same time.

Hunter's is listed on the resorts page so if you want to take that trip you can enjoy Dave's hotspots too.

If you want to go from confused.gif to grin.gif then spend a few $$$ and turn Mille Lacs into your favorite walleye hole. Sorry no pics yet. I'll post them as soon as they are emailed to me.

A couple friends and I got out last Thur PM after work. The wind was very light, sunny and warm, you wouldn't think that would bode well. But it turned out to be a great outing. Went out to the flats first rigging. We got the only keeper from there first, a 17". followed by a 28, 26, 25.5 and a 25. Moved in for the final hour and caught 6 more keepers, and 6 more 20"-25" on slips. What a blast! The action was literally as fast as bringing your kids to fish sunnies off the dock. Can't wait to try it again.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      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.

      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.
