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

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
