I dont think your going to have enough ice bye the 12-1 to get a fish house out but when you do make that trip I always have good luck jiging with a swedish pimple and the head of a minow. There a lot of ways to bring the fish up through the ice you just got to find out what is working that day. Bring a little of everything. Good luck!

That part of the lake can freeze fast, its hard tp say if you will have ice. You may want to have a back up weekend in mind. The fist ice in a rental house is the best. Your best bite for Walleyes will be dusk and dawn. But last year there was a good bite well into the night. The most popular way to fish is with a dead stick(bobber minnow) or with jigging with spoons or jigging raps. I suggest a glow spoon like the Scenic Tackle Glow Devil or a Rapala jigging rap. Orange,Red and Glow are good colors. Good jigs to use with a bobber rig is a Demon glow jig or colored plain hooks.

Perch will bite throughout the day, use small spoons and jigs tipped with small minnows and maggots.


Fishing packages can be seen on the resort pages here.

Good Luck Be safe and see ya on the ice

Hey guys I am looking at renting a shack and going ice fishing for the first time on the big pond on 12/01. First of all is there going to be enough ice to rent a house? Second is that I have never ice fished Mille Lacs before and would love any advice on tackle, technique, location or any other advice that may make my trip enjoyable. I am thinking of renting a shack from Scenic Bay, any word on their services?

      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.

      Bluegills and why is knowing I can catch a bunch and you never know how big it will be when that bobber disappears under the water.
