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????

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.  
    • Surface Tension
      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.
    • ANYFISH2
      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
