I spend a good amount of time on Mille Lacs in the summer. I am stationed near Macs Twin Bay. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of lakes that are within a half hour from there that produce some good fishing??

mayfly It depends on what you want to fish for. Theres borden lake which Is a mile out of garrison going towards brainard, I've fished that on for bass and northerns. I thing theres good panfish there to. Theres also farm Island lake, I've done really good on that lake for walleye thats our back up lake when The big pond Is slow which was all last year. It's located north on Hwy 169 past Myr marr marina about 10 miles. Ive also tryed round lake caught a few walleyes but nothing to wright home about. there alsot of close good fishing lakes you have to be willing to discover somr thought.

I hope that I helped a little. If there's any more info that anybody else would like to share feel free.

I like to stop at Shakopee on the west side. The Rum River flows through. I've caught some nice walleye and crappie over the years.

I'd 2nd the shakopee recommendation, just look out for rocks and a few dead-heads. Nav

huskie- I have no idea, I dont ice fish Bay I fish it in the summer and do good. I fished it once this winter in hansons bay and caught 1 11 inch crappie and 4 northerns, all the sudden 2 fish suspended moved in I caught 1 and then a northern came and scared the second fish away. I fished it for about 2 and a half hours and drilled many holes in the basin and dident get any more crappies.

I was on Bay about a week ago and only caught one crappie in the bay by the landing marked fish after dark but they would not bite.

      My name is HANNA HENRY .I want to give thanks to HAKEEM AHMED for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person,It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again . I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather they got in contact with HAKEEM AHMED. He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. HAKEEM AHMED makes him realize how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well , in our love life . contact email [email protected] or text or add him up on whatsApp at: +27788392740 his web page http://astrologerastrology.com

      I love pulling lead core but usually don't pull it out until later in the season.  Can you share depth and speed numbers that were working with lead?  Thanks.

      Heading up early Saturday morning. Going to be a short, discombobulated trip this year. Starting with 4 of us but one has to leave to watch his son play in state (WI) baseball tournament on Tuesday. Rest of us are only there until Wednesday. Kind of disappointing but I'm thinking we'll have to make a trip in September as well.    Forecast calls for wind!

      Those are cormorants and they are aggressive fish eaters.  I saw more last weekend than typical on vermilion.  Pretty common  on the east end but I don’t usually see much of any on the west which is where we were.  They eat a lot of fish and surprisingly large fish for their size so they aren’t great for the fish populations.     I can’t believe how fast the water warmed up.  We were seeing up to the high 70’s last weekend.  Typically mid June is mid to upper 60’s.  The Muskies didn’t seem to be too fired up with the quick warm up.  The ones we moved were lazy and would not go in to the turn.  Hopefully some more normal temps this week help.
