hot if it wasn't for the fact that half the state will be there.

HOT...sort of ( 12:00am to 5:00am). After that you better have a bumper boat. That and if you actually would like to eat some walleye I wouldn't recommend it.

Not. The walleye population has crashed due to a major shortage of forage. Most of the walleyes starved to death. It will take many years for the lake to recover.

Just joking really. Seriously though, I think the bite will be good early season on Mille Lacs as always. Just don't expect the 'bite of the century' again and you probably won't be disappointed.

Ice fishing this year was tough for us ( Compared to the past). We had the good fortune of using a underwater cam this season on the ice. We saw forage galore! Perch dominated the forage spectrum.
I'll admit I was concerned about the possabilities of "starving" walleyes, after the amount of fish caught this past season, compared to the number of perch caught. I didn't catch a single perch all summer. I fish crawlers alot, so this is something remakable. Any other opinions? JC

there was just an article in outdoornews that said how the dnr had found that there was a lot more forage in the lake than they had suspected.

Looking at past high forage years. If the bite is normal, it will be good. Weather will have the biggest factor.

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
