For anyone who wants to take a very close up look, you can right click image and save to windows photo gallery and zoom in to were ever you want. I figure old timers would love to see. The contours of the lake are crazy, but if you fished back then you may remember a old name to a bar of reef. Also the resort names and old phone #'s are on her also. My grandpa loves looking at it. Reminds him of the old days. I have a bunch of old lake maps like this. I have leech from 66,Cass from 68 and a couple more.

Wow, I'd never fish mille lacs if I looked at a map and seen that's what the structure looked like. I'm guessing alot of those resorts were bought out to make way for houses and cabins?

Todays maps are much better and this old map is way off scale. The reason I took a picture of the west side is to show how many resorts are gone or bought out by the Mill Lacs band of ojiaway (spelled wrong). Just neat to look at if you grew up on Mill lacs or fished it alot in the old days.

That is cool... What you should consider is looking at making color copies of it and selling them. I would buy one. I would frame it and possibly put it up on the fish house wall or in my office. A lot people would get a kick out of it when they visit.

Its rare. I will try to maybe get color copies, good idea.

Were would you go to get that done. I can e-mail copies so you can zoom in and see very clear old names,phone #'s,reef's and bars. I look at all the time and find somehting new. I own 10 plus maps of Mill Lacs, but this is the rarest and most favorite one. E-mail me at Shackbash@aol.com and I will send you a better photo If you want.

What size is the map? I work for a printing company, I could possibly scan it and digitally print it.

Shackbash: That is really interesting. I fished during those days with my dad and a couple of uncles on the west side out of Shortys and later Zaskes resort. If you can get some printed I would certainly buy one from you for old times sake. Thanks for sharing. Bill

For copies you could try a local staples or any business supply store that offers copying, you will most likely have to do it your self because they are really cautious about copyright infringement.

A good place to get the scanning done of big prints like this is at Albinson Reprographics or Kinko's . They are both in St. Cloud and some other bigger towns I believe. They will either put it on a disk for you or email it..... COOL!! I would like to get my hands on one as well..

I'd be interested too.

Look at the detail on that baby compared with today's Lakemaster maps. We've come a long way with technology, right or wrong.

Mill laces band of Ojibaway (spelt wrong) bought out Roll in years ago. I used to go up their in fall with my grandpa and fish shallow for eye's. He stated that eyes would come shallow in fall to eat frogs as they burrowed in mud for winter. We never did catch much but we had fun. Roll in Lodge was a great place. It hurt me when they changed it. Still working on maps, have saved all e-mails and will return notification when they are ready. Thanks everyone!

I have been snowmobiling all weekend and just got home. I am very sore! thanks again!

      Thanks for the reports guys.
    • MinnowBuckets
      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!
