Super Duper Mille Lacs BS Thread!
« on: Jan 10, 2013, 05:30 PM »
With all the Mille Lacs posts (where to stay, where to fish, how to catch walleye), I thought we should have a general catch all thread. If you have any Mille Lacs related BS, comments, or whatever, post it here. We should end up with something that members can go back through and get a lot more answers than from a bunch of fragmented threads.

I will merge any new Mille Lacs stuff into this thread if it isn't getting any hits.

Don't be afraid to wake it up if it gets old!

So, where are you guys fishing? Lets see some pictures. @)

The little flecks you see are rain, not snow... :-\

It's like 40 degrees and pouring right now. Not good...

I think this will just take the snow cover off. They are predicting below zero again by Saturday again.

Radar says this burst is pretty much over... I need some snow now or I will melt my snowmobile slides.

I guess it just depends on how much comes as rain before the snow starts and how much snow there is once it turns cold. I'm not real worried, there's allot of ice out there right now. There is over a foot way out on the flats now.

Shoot, Lake X has over 15.... it takes allot to wreck that!

Mille Lacs Rain??
« Reply #10 on: Jan 11, 2013, 11:10 AM »
Anybody around Mille Lacs know if this rain did much to the ice? I'm heading up tonight and was wondering if I'm going to run into a sloppy mess or if it didn't do too much up there. Thanks in advance
How many times do I gotta go through holes before I watch where I'm going? I am an amateur fisherman, but an all star minnow drowner!

Never mind, called Hunters a while ago. They're keeping people off to maintain the access 'til it re-freezes

A friend of mine was on today... he said it was wet and slippery as snot but the ice was good. I'm sure you can get on at a public with an ATV if you wish to.

Was gonna head up there with the wheelhouse. Didn't figure I wanted to tear up the shoreline with the 1 ton and shack. Think I'll just stick close to home and head up next weekend...

Ask this question in the Minnesota section. You will get some responses.

My tip is to go to a resort like Appledorns. Ask for Paul. He will treat you right.

If you specify what month you plan to be there, that will definitely help us MN mudducks to be able to give more specific pointers.

I merged a bunch of the new Mille Lacs threads together... Hopefully you guys can get some answers.

Best bet is to ask around right before you head out. Chances are at least a few of us will have some useful info. I will second everything that is being said so far. The mudflats in the north or the abundant gravel and rock structures in the south all hold fish.

I caught this walleye on mille lacs a little farther out than eddys fish houses. The hook flew off in the hole so i got my glove  on and liped the fish. Its not a moster but it is the first big walleye i ever caught. im going back on friday to see if i can catch another one.

NICE! Now you're hooked on that lake! It will call to you while you sleep! ;D Get that thing on for your avatar photo, lets let the rest of them see how us MN boys roll! @)

From the sounds of it, we have another arctic freight train on it's way. The weather man says it should show up late Saturday or early Sunday. By Monday it's supposed to be -20!!!!! Fri and Sat should be the best bet this week.

With no snow cover, we should enter the safe for loaded semi truck rated ice by mid next week. ;D Let's hope we don't get a mess of heaves... :-\

Hey guys/gals!
How has the bite been lately?  We head up on Friday, leaving Sunday, and are staying on the ice through KJs.  Just trying to see how things are going up there!  I think we are going to site in the house at night and morning for walleyes and cruise for perch from other ice houses (that we're bringing) during the day.  Any pointers would be appreciated as it is our first big ice fishing trip.  Us Iowegians would love to get on the fish while we're up there!

Thanks!
