My Friends and fished Mille Lacs for the first time last weekend and we caught 20 walleyes! I know its not 75 or something alot but the size of the fish was the important thing! My wife caught four fish on Saturday one being 30" which for her was great to see! Prior to that day her biggest fish was 19" but all of her fish were over 5lbs so she had a good time. We have a ranger bass boat so it was a little ruff on the big pond so really couldn't explore the lake to much. On Sunday we only fished about two hours but in that two hours I got Two fish that were over 27" and one 29" that didn't look skinny at all? some of the fish we caught had hooks in their mouths and a few looked a little rough but the smaller ones we caught looked really good? We took some quick pichures and let all of our fish go! I really had a good time up there and being big into Bass fishing I gave that a try and got a 20" bass that was a great bonus fish! We all injoyed our time out on Mille Lacs and we fished some other lakes to so I hope this fishery stayes strong and doesn't flop and die out that would be a shame for all of those fish to go to waste. Thank you for your tips on this lake you all helped us out a lot! BigBassBrettskee

I also experienced Mille Lacs walleye for the first time this weekend and it was outstanding. A friend caught her first walleye and it was a five pounder about two minutes after we dropped the lines in the water. I did notice that the fish we caught were not healthy looking. They were skinny with sunken bellies. This is based on comparison to walleyes I have seen on many other Minnesota lakes. They really are not healthy fish, all head and no body.

      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. 😀
