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.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
