Mille lacs ice

Recommended Posts

rayguy

For all you guys wondering about the ice here you go.  Just came down 169 and the ice starts about two or three miles N of the old Boat  Harbor,  now Gregorys.  North end looks ice free looking out from Garrision.  However ice sheet goes out of sight E from where the sheet starts. All the major bays on the W side are locked up tight. Its a NE wind so its not moving.  Don't think there is any chance to fish the W side other than up by Garrision.  Don't know if E side is open or not.  Boys it looks tough.!

all the cameras on the east side are open water except agate bay which is stuck on April 28...what a show it will be if a bunch of brave souls hit the water and the wind shifts and moves that sheet of ice!  I can just picture the sheet moving and a line of people trying to trailer their boats as fast as possible!  (I know that is a very unlikely situation but...):D

      That is a fair opinion. My opinion is that as long as the safe harvest level is not exceeded, I really don't care if it takes them 1 day, 6 months, or a whole year, or if they are using hook and line, nets, or dynamite. That is the tribes choice to make.   Some people go home to a super model every night; I do not. Some people have billions of dollars; I do not. Some people can net walleye on Red Lake; I can not. Life is not and never will be fair.

      Thanks Chill, I really enjoy reading your posts.  On a quick update for me, I went out for the first time of the year on Nov. 23rd on a small lake by DL.  Had around 5" of ice and had to drill about 40 holes before we found the crappies and gills.  They were not super aggressive, but we were able to land one limit of keeper size crappies and also some nice gills.  Went out for the second time on Dec. 7th by Lake Park.  With the warm weather, still only found about 5" of good ice and 3" of slush on time.  Fishing was much slower and only caught a few perch.  Thank goodness for the Muck Arctic Armor boots for keeping the feed dry and warm in that slush!!

      Seriously???   You dont even know that the Red Lakes are not, and never were, a part of the 1837 treaty or part of the Ceded territory, yet you spout off here as if its fact? Take that carp back to the Mille Lacs forum where it belongs.    If you want a little FACT finding mission, take a look for the maps of the 1837 and 1854 ceded territories.  Not even close to Red Lakes. I'll save ya the difficult google search, heres the maps for both https://data.glifwc.org/ceded/ So stop biatching about a system that is working on the Red Lakes.  Its been the best walleye lake in MN basically since it reopened in 2006.  And yes, I have fished it every year since then, how about you????   Tried to see if I could find even one fishing report from you on this forum........ crickets.

      We all have an interest in maintaining the lake. I thank god we have this gem to fish and am grateful it's producing again. I'm grateful to all those who worked on the recovery for all of us to enjoy and/or gain economic benefit from.   If people like you came in to the place you made your livelihood (subsistence) and told you how to produce your goods or services, how well would you listen?   A fish meal is a fish meal no matter how it was gathered.   Let's find a positive way to co-exist with each other. The bitterness is not becoming nor is it productive.

      I think they should just stop using nets.  If they want fish, they should have to use fish and line like everyone else.  Just my personal opinion.

      Well played

      Start eating more Smallmouth they are not bad had them in Canada once put side by side with walleye couldn't hardly tell the difference. I know the bass guys are probably going to rip me for saying that but what the heck why not eat em.😀

      I dont know.  In my experience at mille lacs, which was a few years back, i saw no shortage of tiny perch and crayfish and I know there is also tulibee in there

      I like to think that there are too many predator fish (walleye, northern, musky and small mouth bass) for the available forage base to sustain. You can't have everything at once yet here the DNR is trying to make the lake into everyone's dream lake. One of the predator fish has been stocked (Musky) and one protected (small mouth bass)  allowing the natural balance to tilt away from walleyes. This happened because of intense political lobbying efforts of the groups that support these types of fishing activities.

      Guys, please, recommend me a sleeping bag for two that would be warm and thick anought to lie even on snow. I am going to purchase TETON Mammoth from this list https://outdoorsy.org/best-double-sleeping-bag, but if you have something that you can rely on, please, let me know. Do not want to risk it with purchasing something unknown
