Has anyone been out there, what's the ice conditions like & any reports would be great.

the ice is almost as bad as the fishing - bring your water wings cause your best bet would be to take a swim and call it a day..... crappies should pick up here sometime in the near future as we get closer to late ice

My friend has been out twice this winter overnight both times and the fishing was the worst he's ever seen. He tried out in 17 ft of water were you can drive on and off the lake nearest to Upper Prior. In the years past it's been a good walleye producer.

Upper Prior will produce crappies just the same as Spring. You just have to know where to look.

was out last night - ice is in better shape then i thought. even a few idiots with cars out there. you can leave your water wings at home..... crappies seem to still be deep and well feed.

The resident expert isn't at work today, probably out fishin', I work with a guy who lives on the lake. I'll hit him up and see what he has to say.

Any one out there lately, was out the other night and picked up a few nice crappies. Wondering if anyone else has had any luck with them or walleyes.

Pretty slow for me, picked up some small sunfish, lots of people out there now. Now it is too cold for me also, slow and cold = warm bed come this weekend.

going to brave the cold tonight and try my luck - few crappies but nothing to brag about - buddie did ok when that front was moving in but slow sense. going out tonight more for something to do this cold front should have them very tight lipped.

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
