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.

      Well its Friday and the forecast looks fantastic for a weekend of hole hopping. Me and the 96' Pantera are heading up North of Duluth in search of walleyes. Where is everyone heading, what's the target, and how much ice are you seeing? 
    • cookie129
      Bill , Theresa spent one night in Montana, They managed tow get 2 walleyes under 17. 1 around 20 inches , They also landed a 36 inch pike. So all in all Not to good.  The fishing has been way better out deeper , but with this warm up and my houses weighing 5 to 7 thousands pounds.  I need to use common sense and stay on this side of the pressure ridge for now.   When the weather warms  the ice expands , the weakest link is the pressure ridges and can become quite active. Its just getting light, but from what I have heard through the grape vine  the lake was gowning and popping last night with a couple new breaks so if your coming up please check at the resort you plan on accessing.  There crews are out there everyday and know more about what"s going on with bridges ,cracks and areas that should be avoided.  Right now the temps are just to mild to make much if any ice. I was surprised to measured 13 1/4 where I have old Minnesota. I imagine  there's a bit more snow closer to shore so were seeing a inch or more further out where's there's less snow.   We have guest coming  today  with a few not coming tell tomorrow.

      Bump! I assume it's safe for walking but are there any spots to avoid for foot traffic? Have the week of Xmas off and would like to try this lake.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.
