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!

      I believe the hog hunting farm is called Ridge Hunting Preserve, it is east of Little Falls the phone number is 320-745-2337 I know people who have hunted up there in the past and had a good time. They said the hogs were running wild in a 20 or 40 acre fenced area but it is not usually easy to get one but there is a high success rate if you have the time to work the area. I am going to confirm the location/name and will probably hunt there this year. Russian Boar are supposed to be pretty tasty and there are meat processors near by to drop the hog off at.

      I went out after the wind died down. Caught 23 with a mix of eyes and saugers.  12 to 15”   With no slots. Fished 12 to 27’.

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.

      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.
