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!!!

I Like Worms

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.

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.
