11/22/14 – Ken speared this 40 1/4″, 17 lb. Northern today. Also had the biggest walleye he’s every seen bite on a sucker minnow!
Opening Fishing weekend brought us fantastic weather this year. Warm, sunny and no high winds to contend with made for some great fishing. The best bite was in the morning and evenings. Most used minnows and fished in 17-23 FOW. Tim and his brother Dave took their Mom out on Sunday for Mother’s Day and […]
We currently have 14+” of ice on the road. The least amount Tim has found is 12″ off the road.The road is plowed out about 2 miles and it will be awhile before it goes further as the ice isn’t ready further out yet. There is quite a bit of snow making it hard to […]
Tim was just out checking current conditions after this “way to much” snowfall. Not much has changed, there’s still 9″ of ice in the bay past the crappie hole. Not enough to put a truck/plow on yet. There’s 7+” of snow cover and water comes up at least 1/2″ as soon as you drill […]

Tim ventured out on to the ice this morning. He was out about 450 yards and had 3″ of ice. There was pretty much 3-4″ consistently in the path he took out. Isle Bay is fishable but we recommend you stay away from bull rushes. Winds are supposed to pick up later today so […]
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a report and I apologize for that. Had lots of things going on this fall getting the resort closed up. Tim had to have eye surgery again so he had to get his boat pulled out earlier than he would have liked. Also had a new boat ramp poured […]
The walleye bite has picked up producing nice numbers of big fish as well as a decent number of keepers on Mille Lacs Lake. Don’t let the slot detour you, you get more meat off the 2 – 18-20″ fish than you did last year with the 4 smaller fish you could keep. Rigging with […]
