I have never fished this lake before looking for help. I really don't ice fish much either so any info would be greatly app. I think we are going to stay at hunter windfields any info would be greatly app.

Hunter Winfield's are great people and will steer you in the right direction. Also, concider Appledoorn's, either one will get you on fish.

by then we should have good ice and roads. I would look to the mid lake structures (gravel and mud).

i stick withg the basics, 1/16 oz glow jig with a minnow hooked in the tail, that time of year i would think deeper like 27-28 ft, did real well last year during the day for walleye..

We look forward to seeing you on the 7th - we'll have you setup and ready to go and will do our best to have you on fish. We move the wheel houses frequently...I was just in one last night - caught a few perch and a fat 26" walleye....call us in advance of your reservation if you have specific concerns or questions - we'll take care of you!

Regards,

Margie

margie,

your houses have a stove in it for making pizzas and cookies right. how many rattle reels are usually in there also. we will be coming up with a few rookies so i hope everything works out. so any info on what colors and spoons would be great. they don't have much so we can buy what we need.

thanks so much

Staple colors to use on Mille Lacs are Green, Orange, Gold, and glow. I prefer glow over all colors. JIggin raps, buckshot rattlespoons, cleos, swedish pimples, and glow jigs will all get you fish. If you want to use tip-ups, use large suckers and shiners for the pigs and if you want to catch more fish, but not as big of fish, use medium shiners, chubs, or suckers. Light line for leaders and fish the midlake reefs and adjacent deep water and you will be ok. Good luck.

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      Decided to hit a couple spots today. Water too high at the first spot so I went to spot number two.  Two so far after 20 minutes

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/
