Hello, I am new to Mille Lacs and have never fished it before. I am planing on coming up on the weekend of the 21st of December and will probably be coming out of McQoids on the south end of the lake. I was wondering if anyone had any advise as to where I should fish, what depths, and what kinds of lures.

I use a jigging spoon with a minnow head on one rod and the other rod I use a slip bobber with a red or chartreus or orange hook and a bead or 2 as far as location the resort should be able to help you out, im not sure on ice conditions there

Jigging spoons are good for morning and evening walleye bite and small jigging spoons work well on perch during the day...if you find the right size of perch. Jig 'em and get some flashing to attract the fish over. Tip 'em with the head of a minnow or even load them up with wax worms or wigglers...and try rocking the spoon on the bottom and working it up to 3 to 4 ft. off bottom. You can use 2 lines so I'd rig the other rod as a deadstick with minnow, or bobber with minnow, or set out a tip up. Try a glow hook or glow jig to help as an attractant at night. McQuoids should be able to help you out. Also right near is Johnson's portside and they have a good selection of bait and tackle and may be some advice on fish movement and location that would help you out. Good Luck!

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
