Hot or Not? Mille Lacs for Opener!

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.

The fishing or the weather? The fishing will be not too hot....the weather will be cold so bring your snowmobile suits.(and watch out for dk rookie boaters!)

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

    • Was this down at Fort Snelling?
    • Well I ended up seeing the other guy at the same area. 13 pointer
    • yepper.............super bowl here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😉
    • I just looked and saw that I was also a 10 year member on this site as of 12/11/2008...got me wondering if the fishingmn site was different, as I recall joining in march during a spring crappie boom on red.  Sure enough I joining that site as of March 2 2005.  It has been a great site to be a part of and have had great conversations, learned a lot, and have sadly seen too many members pass away.  Very odd on that part when I find myself shedding a tear for people I had no connection to other than the love of the outdoors and reading and exchanging info on the interweb!  
    • Camera are great. Shielded wire or wireless I use both. rl-sd good info on shielded, wireless I use 5.8ghz drone trans/rcvr effective and inexpensive all 12v run multiple devices, TV, monitors, tablet, smart phone.   Forced Air Furcace - only way to go. Ventless has CO issue and will put 4 gallons of water/moisture inside your house for every 20# of propane burned. If you go ventless bring a torch the following morning as the door will most likely be froze shut. I have a 6.5 x 12 WH, 19,000 BTU Suburban vented furnace well insulated took 9 min to heat from 8 deg to 70 deg. You will probably need to go to 25,000 minimum. My cealing at 82" and air duct to center of house & 4" round to door no ceiling fans. Have balanced temp all areas of house. On my next build I will add a second floor 2" and have a 12 x 2" channel from furnace to back of house with 8 x 2 multi channels to sides to duct heat. Fill other area with additional insulation.     I don't sleep in mine so no bunks and no range hood.   I would go all 12v lighting. Smaller flexible stranded wire, no A/C interference. Lights available equivelent to 75 watt only white, not yellow. You can get remote dimmers for about $12. I made mine 4 years ago putting 50 50 bright white strips in RV lights. Bottom lighting  pic before I put the new Suburban furnace in.  
    • Congrats on your 10 years Steve!! Made me look too, and it says since 8-11-2000..........    Holy carp, thats a long time ago!! Back in the day we used to have some pretty big get togethers on the Duluth forum.  Many B-side Bash's, a few garbage clean-ups, and a couple Lake Superior get togethers. I've met alot of folks from on here up on URL back in those old days of the Crappie Boom.  IBOT's and clamping, oh my😂      
    • I had my old boss once point out the number of posts I've made here.   " But that comes out to be just less than one post a day."   "I guess you are right, carry on."   And of course, I was also a member of Team Timeout a couple times myself.
