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.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
