Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey guys I am heading to the big pond on 12/01 to fish it for the first time through the ice. I think I am going to rent a house from Scenic Bay. I have not ice fished in about 5 years and would like any info that may make the trip a memorable one. Any info on tackle, technique, bait, and info on the resort that I am renting the house from would be greatly aappreciated!!!

is that 12-1 as in Dec. 1st? or Jan 12th? I don't think they'll have houses out on dec. 1st. Maybe some guys with portables, but I don't think any perminants will be out yet. IMHO.

You're probably better using a portbale during first ice on Mille Lacs anyway. Gonna need to punch a lot of holes and find roaming fish. I always like to fish the south side towards Mac's Twin bay for perch at early ice. I like to fish the flats in about 18 feet of water. Once you find a school it will be fast action until the school dissapears, then its time to search again. A lot of walleyes roam these flats too. I'm hoping maybe to get into the crappies up on Mille Lacs this year. I hear there was some big ones.

Good Fishin, Matt.

Don't plan on permanents until last week of Dec. even if we get a heck of a cold snap! The walleyes are bitin' decent from shore now after dark though.

Fish-on

The highs are supposed to be in the 30's to near 40 for most of this week, and El Nino is supposed to be kicking in any day. I would venture a guess that you will not be ice fishing on December 1st.

Matt,
When your up this way fishing drop me a line. I'd like to fish Mille Lacs or a few Crappie honey holes around Aitkin with you if your up for it?

chiro,

Sounds good to me, I'd be willing to hit the big pond or fish for crappies with you. I'll be sure to let you know when I make the trip. If your ever down in the cities let me know and I can show around some crappie haunts that I have.

Good Fishin, Matt.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
