Crapman, there are various ways for you to get on the lake depending upon, how you want to fish, how much you want to spend and what time of the day you would like to fish.

There are various guides that work on Mille Lacs, one is right here on this forum, D-man. These can be half day or ful day trips which you can customize a little bit more.

Many of the resorst on the lake have launch boats and run launch trips. They vary in time, but the most common is a four hour trip from 8am-noon, 2pm-6pm or 8pm-midnight. If you are up for a night trip I would recommenc it. These resorts provide bait, tackle, poles, and etc. All you need to do is show up with a cooler and enjoy the fishing. Most places charge around $25 for these trips. If you are interested in a group outing where you might be able to fill up a boat you can customize your trip times according to your groups needs.

There are also probably a handful of resorts that rent boats, this I have never done and don't really have any input on this other than to contact some resorts and see if the rent boats, I think the problem you might find is that these boats might not really handle the windy days very well.

Good Luck and let us know how things end up!

It's been about 8 years ago... But I got a good boat from McQuoids. Not just a 16ft with 9.9 but a servacable Mile lacs boat.

Hey Crapman,

I used to rent boats from Dickie's on the southeast side of the lake. 16ft, 15hp. I also have rented from Eddy's and would recommend that you contact them first. For an extra $10 you get a little bigger boat w/ 25 hp and a depth finder. Good Luck!

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
