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.

      What a difference a couple of warmer days make.  I had great snowmobile travel conditions on Burntside on Tuesday.

      I know it was not Vermilion but I was on Burntside Sunday-Wednesday and found the travel conditions great with the snowmobile.  Had 30" of ice, but the top 10-12" was white and there was a 1" water layer under 2" of top white ice.  The top was softening up when we left Wednesday afternoon.  The bottom 2' of ice was nice and clear, so it will be solid for a while.  If they get cold weather up there for a few days, the lakes could be very good traveling for most vehicles since the deep snow has flattened and most of the water on top has drained or evaporated.  If it gets cold, I may be back up on Burntside for the end of March.

      Can someone please post pics and or videos of the Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught by @DTro. The story about the aftermath would be cool too.   How is the St. Croix River looking? Anyone out fishing it?   Fishing reports please?

      I have not seen any, but I am not out in the country much yet. I need the snow to drop quite aways before I can get back to most of my spots.

      Spring is no slouch for activities though! Here’s a list of (fun) possibilities for even this weekend:   Sapping Shooting - rifle range Shed hunting  Still enough ice to fish through Some open water to cast to Still ‘Nuff night light yet for yotes  Scout for turkeys Snow goose season is open too   It’s too bad though I have to include some other stuff for the weekend:   Helping move someone Taxes Annual files cleaning HVAC maintenance  Some catching up at work Snow plow repair/maintenance   At least I can count on getting stuff from BOTH sides accomplished!

      I ran into a couple guys at the gas station when getting minnows today and we started chatting about this.For access to these lakes without an inspection they said this is what you want to do-Have someone who isnt going fishing come with you and launch your boat they drive away with truck and trailer and come pick you up later.Not a great option for all but if you live nearby the restricted lakes they said this works.I like their style

      March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight.  They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.   There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet.  Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.
