What part of the lake are their houses put out? Anyone know how far they are put out at this point. Feedback welcome. Planning on comming up after Christmas. If this dont work out, will certainly be checking into Appledorns and Hunter Winfields for a Feb. repeat.

Stayed there last year in mid January and the houses were just out in front of the resort. had pretty good luck with perch and a few walleyes. Just talked to them yesterday and they had two small houses out but they didn't say where. they said that all of their houses will be out by new years. hope this helps.

When people are referring to areas of the lake, what area of the lake would Eddys be considered. I am quite unfamiliar with Mille Lacs, having only fished it a couple of times in the winter. Plenty of time to learn, but hoping to speed up the curve.

Also, we are heading up Dec. 26...any insight into targeting depths, particular structure in the area, set ups would be appreciated. My understanding is the perch bite has been better than the walleye. We are looking for a bite most importantly. Will have portables with as well.

thanks in advance-at least let me know a bit about the locations on the lake when you referring to particular spots, or direct me to a map so I can educate myself.

Eddy's is on the southwest side of the lake. It's right across Hwy 169 from Kathio State Park, which is between Lundeen's/Meleen's bait shops and the casino.

In that area of the lake you might try fishing off Rocky Reef to the southeast. I would start in the morning at 20 feet deep and go deeper (down to 32 feet) as the day went on. I have caught walleyes and perch there last winter.

Thanks for the tips! I am confident that if we have some success, the wife will demand that I go with her. She is feeling a bit left behind, as its myself and three friends this time. jk

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
