Mille Lacs trip...

14 posts in this topic

I'm looking at going to Mille Lacs for a few days in early June. Any recommendations on a campground/ park to stay at? I plan on fishing for smallies, so I am guessing south end of the lake somewhere...

Thanks for the help!

Best time will not be for a little bit, that water takes FOREVER to warm up out there. Late June it is

where I fish UP NORTH I catch all my big fish (large and smallies)from opener-middle of june. So the time is now.

Late may is my favorite, when I can command all the smallies off the boulders to feast on a tastey hook. After july with the exception of Lake Vermilion, the bass fishing gets harder and dealing with the weeds sucks.

Mille Lacs is unlike most lakes in the state for smallies. The hotter and calmer the better.

I'd love to know why that is.... I know a couple other lakes like that, and the common denominator - if there is one - is clear water. But it's odd...

Cheers,

My only guess is the size of it and the water clarity. Takes so long to warm up and never gets to be the temps of a typical lake in MN. And there are very few weeds outside the bays to hold the warmth. Rocks help, but there are only so many of them.

    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
