D-man, Can you confirm or deny

Recommended Posts

D-man, I heard rumor that the middle of the lake may have broken up today,...can you confirm or deny this. Also have you heard of any other problems due to the warmth and the wind today?

On a different note I am looking for a spot to fish where I can hopefully get out and away from the crowds for a little while at least, I access at Weekends. Any help would be great. As of tonight the areas around Andersen's were off limits.

Thanks in advance.

Grabs i cant deny or confirm that report. I would guess someone saw a crack or break open up pretty good. I did just get off the phone with Rocky Reef were i go out of and Patti said the rentals shacks are hot. Not very many perch but the walleyes are biting very good. They are driving out and have 14 inches of ice.

D-man, thanks for the update. Can you give me any idea of what depths they are getting them in? I am having a lot of trouble getting on active fish this year, I seem to be a day late and a dollar short with my every move! Right now my house sits in 14' with gravel, but without access to Andersen's the good structure is very limited out of Week Ends.

Twitter Rocky Reef is just north on 169 past the Holiday and Lundeens, I would say maybe a mile up the road. Check out there website for contact information. I am not sure I can post it here, but it is just RockyReef .com

Good Luck, Week Ends is just south of there too, and at both locations you will be able to drive out, but be careful. If you need info about Week Ends, e-mail me ([email protected] or [email protected]) and I can let you know.

I flew over the west side of the lake this afternoon. There weren't any open spots on that side. Just the usual pressure cracks. Looked east and couldn't see any open spots that way either........

Flyingfish, so is that you I see buzzing over head many afternoons? How far out is the farthest house that you could see. Must be cool seeing the lake and the villiages from a bird's eye view.

There are a lot of people that fly over Mille Lacs. I had three buzz the house on Saturday morning. Two of them landed on the lake. Yesterday was the first time I flew over the lake lower than 3000'.

I was supprized at the lack of houses on the lake. On the West side, Week Ends, Rock Reef, Stocky's, Cozy Cove, and Eddy's all have a pile of houses out closer to shore. Further out there were to sets of guys on 4 wheelers north-west of spirit Island. A guy was about a half mile out from Indian Point, and another was out quite a bit further. There were a handful of guys in Roland's Bay. Mostly walk outs and on pails, but there were a few portables and two atv's. There were a few more in Wigwam Bay. St. Albans Bay up to Garrison had a lot of houses. Portables and a few permanent houses were further out on Garrison Reef.

For the most part, it looked like everyone is still stuck on shorline related structure other than a few people venturing further out. Looking east I don't recall seeing anyone out more than 2 miles or so. There is plenty of untouched structure.......

      Update on driving on Bald Eagle anybody

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much. 
    • Spearing Machine
      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
