I am going up to mille lacs and was wondering if a guy could go all over the lake if I bring a sled up?

How is the west side usually for a bit? Like Banana?

Thanks in advance.

You'll be fine with a sled. In fact, that's the best thing to use right now. I was up last weekend and had no problems using the sled.

You'll be searching a lllooonnnggg time for bannana reef on the west side, it's in the SE corner of the lake. But the bite has been decent all over the lake if you're willing to work a little for them.

There is a Banana Flat on the NW side that Twin Pines usually plows out too. Maybe that's what you were talking about?

I'm sure Paul does not travel totaly accross the lake to fish bannana reef? There is plenty of structure much closer than a 20 mile boat ride!?!?

If I did I would take a snowmobile and not a boat, that is for sure.

Just wondering I guess...obviously that was a bad question and nobody fishes there in the winter.

If anyone has, just wondering if its worth the snowmobile ride.

Thanks

That flat gets fished pretty hard in the winter. I'm sure if you put your time in you get a few though. Any flat or piece of structure is worth trying at least once. Good Luck!

Hamrej23. There are two well known structures on Mille lacs labeled as the Banana. The one in the SE part of the lake is commonly known as the banana reef due to the fact that it is a shallow rock reef. The west side banana is commonly called the banana flat due to the fact that it is a mud flat. If fishing the mud flat banana, I would suggest starting at the southern tip. I have not been there this year, but that area has produced well in past years. Good luck

Thanks for the tips.

We are heading out of Garrison and the Casino Access.

Should be fun. We are going to bring the portables up and drill drill drill.

Best success i have had on mille lacs is fishing away from the well known structures and exploring wink

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
