Eyechaser- Like I said no apologies needed. I get your point and for the most part agree. Slobs are slobs and there are plenty all over the state, reguardless of where they are from. I am a "cabins or lakes" person as well so I get your frustration. To each there own on how you or anybody else wants to do your part to protect the lakes. That is all on the person doing the act if that is what they feel is right. The Red Lake crappie situation had little to do with over harvest though which is totally off topic of this post so I am don't really want to discuss on this thread. We can discuss that situation on a pm or new thread as I don't think it is relevant to this one. Feel free to pm me if you want to discuss that situation further.

Well stated^^^

Eyechaser- No apologies needed. Just be careful who you point the finger at as my city friends who I associate with do not under my watch disrespect regulations, and I know first hand of some so called country folk who fish the same honey hole day after day that have zero regaurds to regulations because they live there and it's there lake. I have lived in both parts and can attest to both. The red comment is still ridiculous and not true.

EasyPeezy- Some maybe frauds but sounds like you may be the type that is gonna get theirs because everyone else does. Hopefully you do not pass this idea along to future generations. You sound more guilty than most because if someone else is speeding it is alright for you to speed.

Everything was legal about this video in particular. Was a half hour video of your catch necessary, probably not. Would 5 mins of you catching some nice gills telling about how you caught them, like you stated was your intent been more accepted probably. Do I think your intent was to educate about your catch vs bragging as you state...not so sure. We are all entitled to our opinions and how WE personally are stewards of the water and land. Fishing and hunting regs are broad and try and cover majority areas what one lake can sustain is not the same for others. Fish on folks to how ever you seem fit, but it is up to you and I, to be able to keep the fishing great for you and your generations that you may introduce to the great outdoors.

Feel free to rip this comment apart. And fish on

Don't forget the weekenders that come from the cities and other states that catch a limit drop it off on shore and go catch another and another. That's what happened to red lakes crappies.


This made me laugh. How small minded this comment was referring to only city folks or people from the cities taking their limit over and over. Locals never disreguard the regs. That is not what happened to red lake crappies either get your facts straight before you start spouting off on your third post. Now back to the argument at hand carry on folks.

Amazing that whatever gets posted on this lake it gets turned into a bitch fest. No matter what the topic is. "Sickening"that people had a good opener on a lake catching fish. Is that not the point? I know for a fact that not everyone had as good of a bite as others have stated because one member asked me for a tip or two and I happily obliged to share my experience with him. Is that not the point of coming to this forum to discuss the how and where or is this just a place to come kick your dog when someone pooped in your cereal.

I think you need a bigger battery. I run three graphs lights pumps radio etc etc all of of one battery and never die out. Now I do not sit in one spot for 6 hours either but I run an interstate size 31 marine cranking.

None of that will apply on hard water. No coast guard license or any of that with a wheel house. My two cents is that people do not care to rent a wheel house much anymore or a sleeper house in general seems like everyone has one now. The folks that rent houses are there to either party or bachelor party type. The others don't care if they are in a wheel house or a skid house they want a one nighter and that is about it. With the season being so short lately not a lot of time to make money and you need to be on call and on the lake at all times. As in you need to live out there. You can not telll someone I will take care of the issue in the morning. The other problem is getting access or permission to go out of a resort because you will need a plowed road. Not many resorts will let you use there road for personal gain without getting a cut of the profits. Can not go out of a public launch unless you are going to bridge the heaves yourself and maintain a road. Midweek will be slow at best. In my opinion it is easier said than done. Not to be negative but you will be better off fishing all winter instead of trying to make a few bucks and working you arse off to do it. Just not enough money to be made with a couple houses. IMHO

Yes it will help, especially on maintenance like stated just runs that much cleaner. I run non oxy and seafoam in every tank. Not cheap but feel I make up for it in the long run. Knock on wood but never have had to clean carbs or deal with a poorly idling motor.

I can guarantee you I will not kill a walleye by hooking mortality. It's even more sad that people shame others for fishing a lake that is completely legal. If it's all about politics than why the shot about hooking mortality. I can go five minutes from my house and catch eater walleyes but hey thanks for ruining another constructive post about Mille lacs. I love the structure and the various species that are large in Mille lacs. So what....Have fun stuffing your freezer this weekend.

Now back to the ORIGINAL post. Depending on the wind I would look for wind blown sides of structure and if it is really blowing don't be afraid to go less than ten feet. Good luck pm saturday if you want to compare notes.

Mark me down as one of the NO-GOER's. Fished Mille Lacs religiously on opener for over 15 years, this is the 3rd year in the row I will not fish it. Politics tainted this Minnesota crown jewel of a lake for me, its unfortunate. I will be using all those tactics on a different lake again this year.


Sweet more fish for me.

You can fish the pond just about any way you like this year on opener. Bobbers troll cranks lindy rigs and jigs with minnow or leech. Cast rippin raps or jigging raps. Most openers guys are up on the North end sand but with early ice out I think fish will be all over. Rocks sand mud. If you are not graphing fish move. I will be starting shallow and moving out deeper and the reverse that as the sun goes down. Will be doing all of the above for presentations this weekend can't wait.
