Fished Mille from 6am till 8pm last friday. Covered a lot of ground, marked some fish, and caught 0. I was disappointed but the weather was great and it was my first time on that lake. So it will get better. Back to the drawing board and going to try and come up with a new game plan then go back up for a couple days in about 2 weeks.

You couldn't pay me to fish this lake. Fish over 12 hours and catch nothing. I can go on lakes in northern MN and catch my limit in 6 hours or less. If I was anybody planning on fishing here it would be better to wait till the stewards of the land net it out and then ask the white taxpayer to restock it again.

Haha your 100% right on that one. I thought I heard someone saying a few weeks ago that there not reaching there quota on netting. The new generation of fire dancers aren't keeping up with there Heritage, nor do they care anymore which is a good thing for the taxpayer. Means more fish if they can't net there quota.

There's a bunch of house in just about all the bays right now, some smaller shacks maybe a mile out, and portables a littler further out right now. I'm going to call tomorrow morning to a couple resorts and find out how much further there getting out there. I'm really eager to get back up there and farther out for some walleye fishing. I was stuck in the bay fishing 3 weeks ago on the west side. Caught a few walleyes and some perch, no keepers though.

Really slow. Some resorts are still reporting slushy spots.

Looking to take my first Ice trip to Lake of the Woods or Mille Lacs. Need help finding the best sleep over cabins up for rental? I am from NY and want to catch plenty of Sauger and Eyes. Help a fellow Ice Fishin brother out please. Also is there much difference in the fishing in Jan or Feb?

Gave it a good try on Myr Mar last weekend had a wheelhouse, so only moved once. Tried 33' and 20' 7 eyes - 2 keepers a few perch that were decent and 1 tullibee. Bight best at dusk and dawn.

A couple weeks ago went out of Nitti's (good folks by the way) had similar results in 30'

I'm going up there in a couple weeks for the first time. Any advice for me?! Wanna target perch mainly and hope for a walleye. Will have a tip up out for them

Others that have been spending time on the lake will know better, however I will say the mud flats will probably be your best bet. Try to get on an edge and keep drilling.

A resort like Castaways in Isle will make getting to the flats a quick ride, also their restaurant is pretty decent.

Good luck on your trip!

Heading up next weekend out of Red Door. Sounds like the fishing has been decent thus far.

Just got back from our weekend trip to Mille Lacs. Fishing was pretty slow the whole weekend. We caught a few jumbo perch, and a 20 1\2 and 21" walleye. Of course they were just over the slot. We went out of Red Door Resort. They had nice 10 hole sleeper shacks, and their cabins were very nice. Multiple reports from people that were up there earlier, said we just missed the hot bite by one day. Green demons and small spoons worked the best.

Almost forgot. We had the DNR swing by our shack. My cousin bought a dual license with his wife at Gander, butsince she bought it before they were married, it apparently didn't count. The DNR guy was a complete asshole, and ticketed him. We argued he thought he was legal, and it was Gander's fault they told him to get the dual license. DNR guy didn't care, and threatened to take all his fishing gear. No wonder some of these guys get a bad rep. He even said he was just getting a warning, and to go buy a new license, but later in the conversation said he would be getting a fine in the mail. We told him that you just said he wasn't getting ticketed, and he stated he never said that. Wish I would have gotten the guys name and somehow called in a complaint.
