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????

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much. 
    • Spearing Machine
      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
