Walleye #1

A couple of fishing buddies and I are planning a trip up to Mille Lacs for late January. I was wondering what you guys thought about staying in the ice house vs. staying in the motel. What are your thoughts? It seems that the motel is cheaper.

Also how is the perch population this year?

Walleye#1,

I would suggest staying out in a sleeper on the ice. I have stayed at Red Door on a couple of trips. They would be the first place I would check to stay again. Their is nothing better than waking up to a rattle wheel with a 8 pound walleye (or pout) at 4am. Thats what stories are made of!! I haven't heard many stories about a hotel room. Although I'm sure their are some to be told!!

Besides if you run out of ice for mix drinks you can always chisle some off the lake.

crappie getter,

Walleye #1,
I agree with crappie getter. There were a lot of 1 to 3 AM runs last year that you probably would have missed if you were in the Motel. The folks at the Red Door will definitely take care of you.

      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.
