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!

      No change from the weekend. We've barely been able to drop down to 20 for overnight lows this week. Not losing but definitely not gaining. 9-11 inches with a few spots still with a little less. We'll lose a fair amount of the 3 inches of lake snow over the next 2 days.

      This will be third year using the ice armor gloves, first year I used a pair of extreme mitts. They were nice and warm but hard to do any thing with them on. 2 years ago I recived a pair of extreme gloves and those are much better. Not as warm but a lot more movable and I can fish with them on. Last year I recived a pair of edge gloves. Those are really nice to, warm and I can easily fish with them on. I like having two pairs one I’m wearing and the other as backup.

      That sounds like me. All week I’ve been slowly dragging along, felling terrible. But I go fishing no matter how I feel.

      Had a plan to get out today with a good partner but he came down sick.  Still keeping the day off from work and catching up on gear maintenance and get a couple new set ups going.  Will get out this afternoon to check one of two lakes that were on my hit list last year I never made it to.  Tomorrow I might connect with a buddy in the Aitkin area.   Good luck All. 🙂

      Any update on ice thickness?
    • BobT
      The ice around here is extremely unpredictable; 12" here and 6" just a short distance away and even open water. I've seen vehicles out but unless you've checked the ice yourself along the entire path you plan to take, I wouldn't do it.

      I think there is a new Meatstick out for about $40.  I haven't seen them in person yet, so I can't tell you how good they are.

      I’m loading up the wheeler in the morning. I’ll throw the otter in the truck and planning on slaying the perch, gills, crappies and maybe pike. Should be a good day to test out the new auger mounts for the ATV. Planning to stay Mobil for a few hours then setup the hub and be comfortable. I’ve fished the lake I’m going to a few times this year already and have done well. Last time out there we had abou 7-1/4” ice so last I hear there was 10-11”. So should be plenty good for atv traffic as there’s zero snow on most lakes anymore.

      Awesome! Good luck! We saw some light portables being brought out by ATV last Friday on the N and W sides.

      Was out Thursday drilling holes on Lake 1. The whole northern half of the lake I found 9 to 10 inches. Very consistent. Drilled about 20 holes.😁😂
