Father's Day

Recommended Posts

Evenflow

I will be taking my Dad to Mille Lacs for Father's day. We plan on fishing from Sunday morning early till late afternoon, possibly evening. I've fished Mille Lacs before but always on the ice and in someone elses ice house.
If someone could please give me some tips on locations and depths that would be great.
I don't own one of the wonderful maps that are out there for Mille Lacs, but I can't justify 25+ dollars for a map that I might only use once, so some help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not looking for someone's honey-hole, but if someone has the lake master software and can look up a few interesting inside turns they've never fished or can give me the basic edges of some of the flats/humps that people have been catching fish on I will post after the weekend and let you know how I did.
If you have GPS you can email them to me at
[email protected] .
If you'll be on the lake Sunday, we can set up a marine channel to reach each other on during the day if you like... 69 seems to be what people have chosen in the past, and that's fine with me.

Like I said, any help would be greatly appreciated to help show the old man a good time.

Evenflow,
What part of the lake do you plan to fish?

I'm leaving that up to the wind... Probably the north end...

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
