Driving on from Isle???

Recommended Posts

Matt A.

hey everyone, I will be making my first ever trip to Mille Lacs this weekend and was hoping for some advice on accessing the lake and getting around on it. Is it safe to drive on yet? Where is a good place to get on around Isle?

I am staying at a cabin by Isle and can't wait to do some exploring and hopefully find some hungry fish. Thanks to everyone who posts in this forum! I feel better trying my luck on such a big body of water(ND didn't have lakes like this!) after reading several of these posts.

Good luck to all and thanks in advance for any info!

Matt

There are a few resorts near Isle that have good ice and plowed roads. They each have an access fee (approx $10) to use their private access and roads. The resorts that come to mind are Macs Twin Bay and Angler's Paradise but there are many others on the southeast side of the lake. Good Luck!

Thanks for the information! I'll be out around that area Saturday morning until Sunday evening with my clam 5600 and gray Lincoln Navigator. Stop by and say hi if you're around

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
