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.

    • Nope can't say I have been sick. I visit my parents in the old folks home so maybe that will be a good test. I may need to find another chunk of two to last me the winter. I kinda enjoy being in the woods and looking for it.
    • Make sure you use shielded cable vs wiring rca ends onto standard 16 gauge wire other wise you will have interference from your other 12 and 120 volt wiring.  More insulation = less btus needed. At the very least I would spray the floor. Going to want to go 30k if you aren’t going to spray foam the walls Depends on location. 30” is optimal. If on the side of the house versus back, I would go 24” because the are nicer to sit on. I have a 36” for my fold down top bunk and it works well to sleep my 7 & 8 year old Are they nice? Yes. Are they a nessecity? No. I don’t have one and moisture has never been an issue. The only prob I have is cooking bacon in the house.... I love bacon but when u cook it in the house it lingers for days, but not sure the vent would totally solve this LED!!!!! You need to decide whether you’re going to have a generator and how long you want to run it. If you think that you’re going to constantly run a generator then you probably want to have more 120 V lights in the last 12 V lights. If you’re not going to run a generator that often or not at all then you would want to cut down in the number of 120 V lights.  Three way switches are in valuable within a fish house. Being able to switch on the entire bank of lights by the door and also by the rear bunk is very nice when you hear the rattle real go off in the middle of the night. I have three double pancake LED lights in my house that can be switched on and off individually one light or too light per fixture. I then ran the input power through a three way switch so that I can shut each light down individually or shut the whole works off as one. Hall lights are also very important, we used LED Leison plate lights and they work awesome
    • Been sick at all since starting to use it?  Friends of mine have been using it for a few years religiously for one reason or another.  They keep a jug of it next to the coffee pot.
    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
