Ice fishing can be real good during first ice and late winter on Mille Lacs. During midwinter you have to search the flats to locate fish. Mille Lacs has some nice walleyes and jumbo perch. Don't forget those two in the morning eelpout either. If you get into a school of perch your in for some fun action. There was a good average number of big walleyes caught this summer so I would think that some decent ones will be caught during hardwater. I plan on making a trip up there once ice is ready to be fished.

Good Fishin, Matt.

Ice fishing Mille lacs is great. Plenty of room lots of fish. But let me tell ya, that lake is an unforgiving sohm bich. Mother nature shows no mercy. Walking on 6 inches can quickly turn into barely an inch. Gps is necessary. If you stare at your hole long enough you can look up and be completely lost.

The ice fishing, like the open water fishing has been very good the last year or so. Lots of fish to catch if you don't mind putting them back(slot). Starts out in the bays at early ice out, Cove, twin, etc. Then they migrate out to the flats on wheelers as soons as possible and eventually the trucks head there for most of the action. Usually the focus is on perch fishing, especially after January, but last season was not good for perch. For walleye this is really a lake where skill with a spoon and a Vex will really make a difference. I was forced to learned how to jig a spoon from this lake, if you can get good with your spoon, you will outfish almost everybody, even if they are in the same house as you. IF it is perch you want a Vex or the like is a must, especially now that the Wallys have the perch scattered and on the run. Good luck

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
