Just got back from my first trip to Mille Lacs..

Recommended Posts

Lost two nice pigs. One at the bottom of the hole, and the other after she took a run and took my hook with. Saw both, but didnt land em.

Caught maybe half a dozen or so smaller 10-12ish inch eyes.

I also landed a 24" eye.

Landed an eel pout at 9am? Yes, I'm a wimp and put the gloves on. blush.gif

And brought home dinner for tonight. (17" and 19").

One thing I noticed.. I dont take good pictures.. Luckilly my son snapped a bunch... Even then I couldnt really find any good ones to post.

Also, It costs $74 to have a tow truck come and deliver you gas. Run out about 3 miles south of Rogers trying to make it to the next station. Luckilly I had roadside assistance and didnt have to pay, except for the hour and half wait. frown.gif

Over all my son and I had a great time..

I went out of Garrison Sports. Purchases a scoop of FatHeads, Scoop Of Crappie minnows, Dozen Shiners and told him I'll be out from Friday to Sunday. Total charge was $25, much better than I thought. I fished 8 mile, in about 23' of water. His road didnt go there, but he said I wouldnt have a problem getting to it. Which I didnt. I dont know the Mille Lacs eticate as far as road usage and who to pay. I'm guessing if there was snow on the lake, I wouldnt have been able to get there from Garrison sports?

edit: I guess I fished 7 mile. I only had my hand held GPS and must have mis-read it.

Kari is great to work with and won't over-charge you at all!! class act guy, glad I work with him with my fish house. I don't think his roads go that far out, but with the lack of snow this year, you'd be able to drive anywhere on the lake!! You probably drove past my house to get to 7 mile!!

Ryan, As you head out on his road, there's a right you can take. I'm not sure if it's the official road, but there is a marker there. The road wasnt really plowed, but looked like it may have been at one point? Anyways, that's how I got out to 7 mile. I just followed another set of tracks out.

Crestliner, I didnt catch squat on a jig.. Granted I didnt jig a ton. Caught everything on rattle reels. I think I may have had 2 set up with red hooks and 2 set up with white glow. After I lost a hook, I cant even remember what color I replaced it with. So, I cannot say what worked best. 6am to about 9am and right around dark (in the evening) were the only times I had any action. In between.. nothing. Not even over night. Basically, bare hook with fat head bobber fishing, seemed to work best, and it was the easiest. smirk.gif

I was out a Garrison's as well. I wish I could have seen the house. I only got one bite the whole weekend but it was a good one. Now I am hungry. You got some nice fish.

Hey Kylersk, don't feel too bad about throwing on the gloves. I caught my first eelpout ever this weekend (Mille Lacs) and did the same thing. None of the other guys in the house wanted anything to do with it either.

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??

    • Very ,very close for  change. If I would of bought when i started shooing this start of winter cause the RX-3 was not there I would of been a Mathews guy and that was hard to admit at first  😯  
    • Sweet!   I hope you get that rig started with a turkey this spring!
