Anyone driving on the Northside???

Recommended Posts

Guest

Just planning a trip on Feburary 2-3, wondering if I am going to need to bring my ATV up to pull out my house or if there is going to be enough ice on the northside of Mille Lacs? Also, which side is producing the most numbers of walleye right now-north or south? What are the ice depths on both side of the lake? Thank you for the information.

Who knows what the weather will do between now and Feb 2nd. I went out of Garrison with a friend that lives there on the 14th. We used a sled. The ice was terrible. Heaves everywhere, varying thickness, etc. I did see a resort truck moving a house 1/4 mile south in St. Albans Bay and he stayed at the same alitude while I was looking. Both my friend and I agreed that we would not drive a car or truck on the ice. I would say if a resort lets you drive on their road you can take them at their word. Bring the ATV in case. We got steady bites for the two hours prior to sundown away from the crowds. My time was limited so we only gave it three hours total. Hope this helps.

I am fishing off the northside with a great bite. I have talked to alot of fishermen this week who are having a good bite, but their bite does not compare to the northside. I haven't told them about the north bite. It is an awesome bite, but you gotta travel.

A little hint fellas, muskieman knows the entire lake very well. If he syas the Northside bite is best, you can believe him.

Here are a couple of places to check on the North Side:

Rick or Muskie Man,

Could you recommend an area to fish or a good flat to try on the north side that is currently accessible by truck. What type of bottom structure has been working well this winter? Any tips you could give me on depths, presentations would be appreciated. I will be up Sat and Sun.

      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.

      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!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
