Fished Saturday and Sunday morning and things were real slow for us. Only got 1-21" and didn't mark any others. How are you other guys doing out there. We were in 13'.

We were out on the North end this weekend, caught 20 jumbo's, a few walldogs too big to keep, and one lottery fish that made the slot. Considering what I have been hearing we did pretty good. The majority of the fish came on fatheads with a plain red hook. Did get a couple perch yesterday afternoon on an angle eye, then I dropped my r/r down the hole :-). The perch were feeding on larvae of some sort, they were full of them. Kind of surprised me we were getting them on fatheads. Anybody else do any good?

Just got back from the pond. Went out from Terry's on the west side. Fished on Curly's flat for a half hour or so...22 feet...didn't see anything. That was at about 9:00 am. Then I went south and fished off the south end of Curly's..in between Curly's and Buster's flat. 30 ft of water...got 3 wally's - 2 19" and 1 20" - and caught about 15 perch...kept 8 JUMBO's...caught the wally's on a mid size gold weasle tipped with minnow head...and the perch on big rattler, green/orange also with minnow head. Was using a set line also with shiner minnows...had 3 or 4 bites but couldn't get the hang of hookin em...****! Ice was a good 17 or 18 inches but there are what looks to be 3 or 4 cracks/heaves you have to drive over...spooky but no problem. Good luck fishin!!!

Guys that went out this past weekend, want to head out this weekend...wondering if driving on the ice is recommended? I don't have snowmobile or 4 wheeler.
WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND?

I could get my hands on a 4 wheeler or sled for the weekend.

Help?

Morriscode nice report! Any hints on where to go for the weekend?

Fished from Thursday until Sunday on 1 1/4 west. We had 1 bite, 1 24" 'eye early Friday morning before the crowds arrived. We marked plenty of fish, but couldn't get any takers. Hopefully things pick up soon!

Fished 27' on the Southeast side. One 16 1/2" walleye and my girlfriend caught a 4" walleye. Ended up with 7 jumbo perch (I mean JUMBO) 12,13,14 inchers.

Fishing started Friday at 4pm and ended on Sunday at 1pm. 4 lines down all night/day, for almost 2 days, caught a dozen fish....slow fishing...real slow, but good to be on Mille Lacs. I wanted to get out and search a little but it was WAY to cold. Minus 15 or 20 with windchill, brrrrrrr.

Bare hook and fathead seemed to be the ticket, sundown and about 2 hours after. Good luck

We started to go out of Indian point but the pressure ridges were more than the little truck could handle. I went over one ,no problem and the next one looked bigger so I went to see first hand about a 18" crack . I stomped hard enough to see if it would hold my truck 1/4" didn't even hold me and down I went to my upper leg. Then we went out of the Red Door 5 or 6 miles ,didn't get anything but peanuts 5" 6" got done doing landry (pants,sock & boot) moved east and started getting fish right away . all big for me and my partner got nothing but slot fish (3) so we ended with 9 eyes and one perch ,biggest being 25 1/2" watch out on the ice for changing cracks.Metro

Captain, I wish I new the spot I would tell you exact coordiantes.....but as you can see there really isnt much going on. It does seem like things have picked up a bit, it was too cold for me to go portable so I didnt get a chance to scout. I can tell you that in 27' over rocks I marked fish almost all day...very few takers. I would stick to fatheads or rainbows on a glow red/orange gamakatsu. I have heard people getting bites on gold shiners but never tried them. Bring lots of beer and cards. Wish I could tell you otherwise, but the "dead sea" has revisited us.

Oh yeah Captain, you can drive pretty much anywhere on Mille Lacs. But it is ice so be careful. There are trucks everywhere.

Thanks Morriscode!
We are going to try our luck on Saturday, so we'll see how it goes. I've never caught a nice walleye through the ice, nice meaning 18" or bigger so I have my fingers crossed.

Guys, where would you recommend heading out of for a day, Dickies, Red Door, ETc????

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣
    • papadarv
      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.
    • bluewater2
      Thank you  
    • leech~~
      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.
    • papadarv
      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
