I'll be there with more recruits. Kudos to the entire event team for pulling off a significant event on Winnie without any apparent problems. And Rick, don't let me drink any more 'specials'! Last Sat @ 6am was not fun.

Count me and my crew in. Winnie was a lot of fun. First contest I have fished in awhile. I like how the contest is set up because it dosen't feel like a contest when your fishing. Also I would like to take the time to thank Jason Boser for all the help he gave me and my crew out on Winnie. He was a real help since we have never fished that lake before.

Thanks again
Mike Bradley and Crew

That's a great deal. It normally is around $8 to access roads at the resorts... $10 (includes the road access fee), plus you have a good chance at winning one of many great prizes. Not to mention the title on the line "Worlds Greatest Ice Angler" and some nice trophies. Great meal afterwards, chance to meet fellow FM'ers and a great opportunity to learn how to fish Lake Mille Lacs. Can't go wrong here guys!

Here is a list of some of the prizes posted earlier in the thread...
"awesome line-up of prizes (Otter Fish Houses, MarCum Depth Finders or Underwtaer Cameras, Eskimo Augers, Eskimo Fish Houses, Catch-n.com tackle, Custom Jigs and Spins tackle, Yukon Tracks Gear, Thorne Bros Sweetheart Rods, Bio Bait, LakeMaster LakeMaps, Ice Buster Bobbers from Todays Tackle, TackleCity.com Panfish jigs, Scenic Tackle Angel Eyes, Glow Devils, Ryans ATV Racks, and more.....)."

The jumbo perch have been active and same with the walleyes, looks like with the warm temps predicted for this weekend we are going to see a lot of fish caught this weekend out on Mille Lacs!

Scott Steil will be there to help anyone out who needs some advice on fishing Mille Lacs. Scott will also be giving a little introduction to the event as well. Scott is a decorated Mille Lacs fisherman with a knack for catching big walleyes. You may have seen Scott, or the people he takes out on the lake, in pictures with huge trophy Mille Lacs Lake walleyes. Scott is an experienced Mille Lacs Lake guide and this is a great opportunity for everyone to learn from one of the best, I know I'm looking forward to it!

See everyone on saturday!

can it be luck?

Matt, are you gonna be working or fishing? I imagine you'll be helping out with some of the things at the event. Are you from that area, or fish Mille Lacs much? I never fished there, would like to though. I'm trying my darndest to make it out, and was wondering when you plan on heading over there. If I can make it, it sure would be nice to fish with some of the guys who know the lake. A little pre-fishing so to speak..... OK, who's next? Hey Scott, are you gonna be working or....... grin.gif

I'll be fishing a good portion of the event. You are more then welcome to head out with me on the lake. We will get you pointed in the right direction and we'll do what we can do to put you on some fish. I'll be up there on friday evening and I'll get a couple hours of fishing in before the night is done. You will enjoy Mille Lacs, its a great lake for ice fishing and fishing in general!

Good Fishin,

If I make it up there, I'll bring you a couple hours of video I shot on Erie. It'll show you exactly what to do, whether drift fishing or trolling. I'll guarantee that you'll be "makeing plans" to go!! Thanks again, Mark smile.gif

Mark, I am going to be at the event in the AM before take off. I have clients in our Sleeper house and an evening guide trip on the lake. So, it will be a busy day for me. But, I will be around all weekend.

I will be around during registration and before take off in the AM to talk fishing with anyone who wants to. Mille Lacs is a great lake and one of the few lakes that give you a GREAT chance at a trophy fish every time you wet your line.

The fishing has been off & on but it looks like the weather conditions look pretty favorable for this Saturday. Looking forward to meeting everyone. I am the guy in the red Guidewear. Make sure you stop by and say hi.

Thanks Scott! One thing you can count on is expert help and guideance when attending these events. I for one have never fished Mille Lacs, but for me...Or anyone for that matter, first timers will have proven guides who KNOW the lakes that are being fished. To me that is worth the trip right there. Besides the forementioned benifits, food, prizes, access, and YOU HAVE FUN! (Fun, that's my Chinese neighbors name! grin.gif) I hope to make it out, the events are a blast!

I have to clue you in on a potential good deal..

On your way over to the URL ICE Series on Feb 21, stop in at Fred's Bait and ask him for the FM discount.

Not sure if he's still giving it for that event, but it sure doesn't hurt to ask.

      Looks like a great time and some big smiles! You’re gonna have the kiddos rousing early you every weekend for more time on the water!
    • KidMoe
      With that detail Borch I could spend all summer trying the different suggestions and combos! Very well done sir!    I might have to venture away from Pool 4 to try out some clearer water for night time eyes!
    • smalliehunter
      couple good ones from last couple weeks.  Top pic is my pb 10¾"  Bottom photo is a ten incherfinally got a ruler with white lines that will show up in a photo

      Just meaning trout  waters that have natural population of trout that are born and grow in the water their entire life.  Green pumpkin, browns, watermelons, black, silver/ blue, some orange. Colors those fish are used too. Insects, Minnows, crawdads etc.

      I was up last weekend(Memorial Day weekend) at the cabin on Birch Point. Where my electronics reading right that water was 64-66 degrees? Also tried up in the shallows in the pencil reads and sandy rocky bottoms of big bay, the side of the point our cabin is on, hoping to find crappies on beds, but nothing. Seems like the perfect area and water temp for all other lakes I’ve fished and there was nothin. Not a sight of beds or fish. Maybe there just isn’t good crappie numbers there? Anyone will to share some shallows for sight fishing on beds? And info on that water temp or what it currently is. and if that was right, is that still not warm enough for vermillion? Gonna be up the weekend of 6/5 to try again, and hoping to not miss it this week. Thank you

      Thanks for the input, Patches and good to hear you did well in the area.   Johnson lake is a memorable one for me. I fished there for the first time about two years ago around the last week of June and as soon as we drove past Frontier my pin clip for the boat trailer fell off. Never found out why and never happened again, but I noticed it gone at the launch. I was with a buddy of mine and my father, and I told them to just troll near the launch while I went back to look for the clip. After about 15 more minutes I found it in the middle of road, right outside Pine Cone Cafe.   By the way, it was overcast with the occasional sprinkle, but the sun would spill out as well. When i got back to the launch I noticed my two fisherman pals where not eager to come pick me up. In about 20 minutes they caught 3 walleye trolling spinners in about the 10-12 foot weed line outside of the launch.  We kept one feeling we were deserving giving the circumstance, but as soon as I got in the boat luck failed us again. We trolled the whole lake and only caught one more on the east side. The weather kept getting better which was probably the reason, but it seems like Johnson is like most likes in the area... where if there is a hot walleye bite its not going to last too long.    My Dad went out on Burrows the other day and got nothing too exciting besides northern while fishing the same tactic.  Thats one of our "go tos," but Im currenty not in the area, but getting there soon. Hopefully i bring better reports come as well.   Good Luck

      There's one on Craigslist in the free section. It's in rough shape, but the floats look good. Brooklyn Park.

      Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.
