I've never seen the weeds as thick as they were on the north end. That curly leaf pond weed was ridiculous, basically made the north end unfishable! Once we got out of it, we found some fish further south. Like you said though, super clear water so the shoreline jig was out of the question!

My brother-in-law and I will be down there. Anybody else going? I've seen/tried pitching jigs, casting/trolling cranks, slip bobbers but we always have our most success pitching jigs. What's everybody else's favorite way to chase em the first weekend?

I fish hornets more than any other crank and I've never seen one like that. I would guess it's custom like you said!

Loved my K-drill with the milwaukee fuel. Cut great and never had any issues. Got a deal on the drill and have 3 5.0aH batteries and never have had to charge one on the ice. Granted, I don't tend to drill more than 40 holes or so in a day.

Itching to take to boat for a spin. Not even looking to fish yet, just get it in the water and make sure everything is running properly. Anything open yet other than edges?

They'll price match the Cabela's store down the road plus another 10% of the difference. That's one thing I've enjoyed from the Gander in Fargo. They are usually cheaper than the Scheels in town anyways. Plus they've changed their marketing a little and I get lots more coupons in the mail and email like Cabela's used to do 5-10 years ago, like $20 off $50 purchase.


They might be cheaper with sales, but every fishing item I've ever checked between scheels, cabela's, gander like lures/line/rods/reels has always been cheapest at scheels at the regular price.

I guess I'm in the minority it would seem, but the DNR does a pretty good job considering all of the outside influences they have to deal with. I highly doubt they would manage mille lacs this way if you were to remove all outside pressures from tribes/resorts/anglers/politicians. After all, they have to answer to somebody in charge of them. They aren't a private company on a private water body that can do what they want. Is it unfortunate what's going on? Absolutely! However, I tend to think that if we really knew what they had to deal with from all sides then we'd realize they're doing what they can at this point.

You're asking college kids or even just people looking for a summer job. The AIS inspectors are not professionals. No you will not stop AIS, however every year you delay them might be another year of good fishing down the road. Maybe long term they won't have any impact, but they also have the potential to negatively affect your lake. If you want an example look how screwed up the Great Lakes are. What they are now is nothing like they would have been 100 years ago. Carp are another example, you can't even count how many lakes they've destroyed. The ramifications of AIS aren't always evident immediately.


100 hundred years ago. I would love to hear of any lake that is the same as 100 years ago. The world has evolved a bit since then and it is kind of ridiculous to compare any lake to 100 years ago. I mean what was the population in Minnesota a 100 years ago. What was the percent of people that fished compared to the population a 100 years ago....It's not even comparing apples to oranges it is like comparing an apple to a car or whatever. Instead of spending money on stopping the spread be proactive and expect the spread and spend money on how to either A...Work with the invasive...B kill off the species.


A good number of lakes in Minnesota are not that much different than a 100 years ago. Shorelines might have changed and there might be a new species or lost a species but things haven't changed much. A 100 years in the time scale of a lake is minuscule. You will never kill off an invasive, and by the responses of many on Mille Lacs working with them is unacceptable. You would think someone who's been around Mille Lacs would want to keep that from happening on any other lake.


A new species or a lost species is not a minor change. Period.
