Captain,

I was up last weekend out of Jerry Brandt's. The ice was pretty chopped up for at least 1 mile out. My buddy and I were able to walk out past the rough ice (Center bar), but had no luck...and the walk was TOUGH. You may want to check with some of the resorts along the Western or Northern ends of the lake. One note though, I did find huge schools of perch in 10-12' of water. My guess is that the 'eyes can't be too far behind?? Don't think you have to go deep just because everyone else is. Ice varied greatly...3" to well past the reach of my agar!

Tonka Boy- When you were out, where were most of the people going out to, the deeper or shallow water?

Captain, the bite is slow all over the lake. Perhaps it will improve this weekend but I have not heard anything good and the past two weekends we were out it was not at all productive. The ice should still be 8" in most area's.

Tonka Boy, If your agar is that short you should'nt be sticking it in the hole or you might freeze the rest of it off. grin.gif

NEED HELP!

Bringing my brother up to Mille Lac's for the first time 12/23 and wondering where to go out of. Also wondering where we should be trying to locate these fish...names of flats, reefs, or depths. We don't have ATV or snowmobile so will be walking.
I know the bite has been slow and am expecting that.
Wondering what time bait stores open up in the area because I would like to get the morning bite if possible.
I appreciate all the help everyone and hope to hear from you.

Brandon

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
