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!

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      We all can use this SHOP to buy the covers. I think it's the best offer.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
