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...

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.
