Took some pics that I posted a couple days ago, but the post was lost in the shuffle. For those who did not see them...here are some of them again.

This is a pic of my house being moved:

Better question is what is the point of you writing "what was the point of this?" Some thoughts are better kept to yourself.

Anyways thanks for sharing the pics and hopefully the bite pics up for you. I will be up there on sat. from noon to midnight hopefully with a couple of fish to show for it.

I shared the pictures with my partner and she thought it was so beautiful. We don't ice fish, but we fish June and September.

Thanks for sharing.

The reason I said "whats the point of this" is because everyone has seen a fish house getting pulled out. If you look on this site and see where it states, Forum's, Hot tips, and Secrets what so secret about this?

Yeah it is one of my favorite pictures I have ever taken on the pond. I took it just two miles out, looking back over hunters point.

One of the things that those pictures show to a small degree is the diversity of the fish house styles on Mille Lacs. I have seen more different designs, sizes, colors, etc. than on any other lake. I think a lot of guys think of their fish houses up there the same way young boys think of their cardboard box clubhouses. That's good, right. Being an adult is way over-rated.

Nice pics, I enjoy seeing pics from everyone. It shows you ice fishing though someone elses eyes.

By the way minni, the title for this thread is "Pics of the big pond". If you werent ready to see pictures of miile lacs lake then you should have never clicked on the thread. Like some other people have said, keep your comments to yourself.

Awesome shots..thanks.

I shared them with some folks we were fishing with (ocean) in California over the holidays. They could not believe that people ice fished.

My kids are always impressed by the amounts of blues/oranges and colors during sunsets and rises (if we are awake for fish) on the lake. I think the huge white backdrop of ML helps.

A few years ago I had a friend up from Santiago Chile, he was so moved he painted a bunch of water color sketches, some of which he shared with my friend and I and some of which are now back in Santiago Chile on his office wall. So you never know where impressions will be taken.

thanks again.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.
    • delcecchi
      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings
    • Big Red Lodge
      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
