Going to be heading up there on sunday to fish for the day and was wondering how the ice is on the north end. Want to get out to the flats with a ATV. is this possable? If so how has the fishing been? Any info would be helpful thanks.

The fishing is horrible. Have been fishing on the mud, rocks, sand, transition lines, you name it. I have never graphed so many fish on a flasher that will not bite no matter what you through at them. I think you may be able to scratch up a few perch, but that's about it. I have been going out of the Red Door. Ice conditions are decent...lots of rough stuff but its manageable if you use a little common sense. If you have another lake in mind, I would go there before heading up to Mille Lacs. That hurts me to say that considering the summer bite we had, but something has definitely changed and slowed the bite way down. Maybe the YOY perch hatch??

I have to agree with the terrible winter bite thus far. The South and South East are just as bad the report on the North. I have heard tale of a 9 1/2 pound eye coming on the South Side but fished the same area and got a 19" and a Eel Pout

Team Otter, how have you been getting around out there? We are planning on trying it out on sunday, but are wondering if you can drive vehicles or wheelers only. Even if the fishing is bad it sure beats working smile.gif We are planning on going out of Red Door or Barnacles.
Thanks, and have a good holiday!!!!

i was out last sunday...out from the east side marina... got two 16" walleyes and 4 jumbo perch... slow day. i walked around about 4 miles when all said and done... lot of rough ice but you can get around on a 4 wheeler if you watch where you go. lot of ice in some areas (18-20") only 10" in other areas... still wondering why i didn't drive the truck out but no other vehicles were on the lake. slow bite... but there's just something about that lake that keeps me coming back. good luck and let us know when the winter bite turns on.
