mille lacs ice fishing

Recommended Posts

jwmiller33

hello all. I am going to be making a trip with a couple people to mille lacs this coming weekend in search of walleye, pike, and crappies and other pan fish. We have a wheel house, all the gear we need (auger, THE LODGE ice house, snowmobiles, rods, tip ups, the whole nine yards). The only thing is, we need to find out where the fish are. Is anybody willing to give me some helpful tips of what lakes we should try, or possibily some areas of certain lakes? We have a Lowrance H20c GPS with the Minnesota Lake card, so if somebody could help us out, it would be very much appreciated.

Also, we are willing to hire a guide to put us on some fish. Like I said, we have all the equipment we need, so we don't need to rent any gear or anything, we are just looking for someone to put us on the fish. does anybody know any guides in the mille lacs area that would be able to do this?Thanks a bunch!

also, does anyone know how the bite is on mille lacs right now?

I would hit the mud flats. Set that lodge up right on the top edge of the flat. Any flat will do. I think Tony Roach guides out of Hunters Point and Appledorns. You could give them a call.

If you only have the wheelhouse you will be very limited on where you go.The red door is where I went out Sunday and did well but we fished 4 miles from their road.Terrys road was slow for us on Saturday evening.

Hunters Point has a road and Barnacles also has roads to the flats. Hunters in East side and Barnacles is North side.

Check with the resort you go out of. some times they have a few spots cleared where wheel houses can go . if not find a spot you want to set up in and ask them how much to plow a chunk out for you. You will not be sorry. if the wind comes up and blows you shut they will get you out. a little $ up front or a lot later. this brings up another point. they ( not directing at you) drive pulling all kinds of gear spending $$$ in gas but whine when the resort ask's for a $10.00 road fee. See Pauls post about fee's. I have my house out of Mac's and talk to kevin every weekend so I know how much is comming in and going out.

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
