We finally made it to MIlle Lacs yesterday (tues 18th ) we headed to the flats, ( Scott is great at putting us on the fish ) a bit scary once we got to the end of Hunters plowed road, but we knew where we wanted to go - soooo, off road we went and it was worth it!!!

11 eyes, the ones we got on the ice ( we lost a few ) where from 19.5 to 26.25 inches

An Awesome day laugh.gif

Nice work! I ventured way out from Hunters during this week last year and did pretty well as well. It's nice having the lake to yourself. How was the travel across the lake, still a lot of wet slush it looks like? How thick was the ice? Find any real thin spots?

Reelemin: Some awfully nice fish, great pics. Looks like being chained up was a good idea considering the slush thats pretty evident in the pic. thanks for sharing. Bill

thanks - it was an awesome day, the slush was real bad in spots, travel was difficult once we ventured off of Hunters road. Anything smaller than a 700 ATV or snowmobile would have a very hard time.

"Crappicatcher" they were just recomendations. I'm sure you could make it out there with a 250 if you stick a bunch of money into like you did. Why pick apart peoples posts? By the way everyone is impressed that you have big wheels and lift kit on yours! tongue.gif

Nice post reelemin!

Nice post reelemin!


I am not braggin it up just saying. It sounds kind of discouraging for us little CC's guys that want to come up and get out like they did. The way they make it sound is that it is impossible with nothing less.

I believe I said it would be very difficult. We had a hard time, with a Suzuki 700 King Quad with chains on all 4 wheels! Just don't want anyone to get stranded, cuz there is not alot of people out there to help if you do.

If you go - be safe

I just got off the phone with a couple buddies that have done very well this am (Friday) on the walleyes. They went out on a sled and a quad with chains. The sled was fine, but I can't even used the words he used to describe the trek on a quad. Chains are a must. Be careful and have fun!

thanks for the update. And words of caution. Hopefully with the melting and then refrezzing things will get better.

Thanks for the clarification...

Maybe I will take the sled out there instead.

Just got back from Mille Lacs, we had 2 sportsman 500's out 1 with tracks the other with stock tires. Neither machine had any troubles getting around the area we went out was mostly solid, not to much slush. We fished NE of Isle.

Ended up with one 33" Northern which was CPR'd.

Hey somethingfishy nice northern, I saw you out there. I was on the other side of the perm shacks, with the blue fish trap pro which my dad was in and I was wearing the red jacket jumping around holes. My dad had talked to you a little before you caught the northern I think. Did you get any walleye at all? We didn't catch any eyes, and we were out there since about 10am. We got some good perch, but there were a ton more small ones around. But I got my biggest perch ever after dark, a 12 incher.

I saw you out there hole hopping in the sleeting rain. Sounds like you had better luck than us. Caught and released the pike and caught one other perch at that location. We weren't very productive but still had a good time fishing. We got out on the lake about 10:30 and tried a few spots. Didn't see any eyes or much for fish on the camera besides a few bait size perch. Congrats on the jumbo. It was a great day to be on the lake.

Something Fishy, That spot you were fishing is a great producer of Pike on Mille Lacs. I fish that deep water edge in the open water quite a bit and catch a lot of nice fat pike trolling raps in the summer and fall. It's a nice spot to kill some time when the eyes are shut off. Never seems to be too many walleyes around there for some reason. Probably because of all the pike roaming around in there....Nice fish, thanks for the pic.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      The Pine River stripping station will begin running on Monday, April 23rd.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
