Why so quiet?

What's going on up there this used to be one of the most active forums on this site. No one ever even gave a walk out report. Lots of guys fishing in western mn with up to 15 inches of ice. Can't wait to get back up to the big pond and do some fishing. From the sounds of it you won't have to work too hard to get away from the crowds!

Sounds like pretty tough conditions up there. The resorts are working hard to make things better so they can pull houses, get their rentals out and make it easier to travel. Still early yet. Give them time, they'll make it happen!

I tried booking a perch trip with Roach last March and got no answer. I also haven't seen a report from Hawthorne but see he's at URL. I guess fishing must be too good at other places to try Mille Lacs.

Ya its been real quiet all the snow really messed things up on Mille Lacs. Havent seen hardly anyone out there. I dont mind it though the less competition the better espically being that Mille usually get fished pretty hard in the winter.

I don't think many people are fishing it. There are dangerously variable amounts of ice in some places, and there's a ton of snow and slush everywhere, so if you want to head out, you need a snowmobile.

And for those who are getting out, I've heard that the bite has been pretty slow (or maybe "normal" after the insane last few years we've had out there). The (small) perch are back, the 'eyes are super fat...It might be one of those years.

Oh yeah, and it's been insanely cold.

I hear some places are staging some hooses, eh. 10" of ice in the bays on south end.at least the cold weather is helping. A couple buddies did well with some pike on tip ups out of isle bay yesterday.I didn't get any details. We're in rough shape up here around Duluth. Hope to be out there new years.

To bad you weren't at the BP Fleet Farm today. You could have talked to Roach your self as he was there selling ice gear! wink

SHHHH. You don't want to wake the beast.

I am going up today for the weekend and I'll report what I find. It sounds like things have improved with the ice conditions.

Heavy snow, bad ice, cold temps, No perch, small slot, can't keep perfect eaters 14"-17". What else can I say.....I will be on the pond alot once it is ready but I'm not expecting too much. Hopefully this class of small perch will survive once these hogs leave the system and this good class of walleye can make it through the nets. 2c

      What moose said.  Tore up my lower unit there several years ago up toward the Kiwishiwi.

      Mark B!!!  Great to hear one of your reports again. I sure miss them.  Take care and I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip in Sept.

      I know it’s a little ways out but will be my first time going to lake vermilion August 7-10 out of Norwegian bay. Just wondering how the bass fishing is and will be around that time if anyone knows 
    • Duckhunter1941
      Thanks for the information! Are you talking about south walnut by the dam and just north of there where the other river meets the lake? I’d assume it’s more of a spring spot when the waters a little higher and the walleyes are running? 
    • Rick
      It's a shallow lake with a channel that runs through it. You will be better off with a canoe or kayak to fish it.   The walleyes tend to congregate where the channel runs close to shore. You can also fish the holes in the blue earth river for them. A few flatties hang there too.
    • monstermoose78
      Watch for rocks. Where there is current. 
    • Wanderer
      Whatya got?  If it’s for free it’s for me. 😁
    • Duckhunter1941
      I was wondering if anyone has ever fished walnut or south walnut lake/ the blue earth river area? I see the dnr stocks walleye about every other year but I never hear of anyone fishing it
