Me and a few buddies are planning a trip for the first week in Jan. we have not decided on a place to go yet because of the every changing ice right now. Could some people please help to keep me updated on the ice conditions? Any updates are greatly appreciated. I would really like to know where the lake is being accesed from and what types of vehicles are leaving. Obviously as everyone is im waiting for this beauty to lock up.

Look at the other threads in the Mille Lacs forum. There is plenty of reports on the conditions right along with satellite images of the lake.

All of the info being posted is coming from the north side I think. It is all coming out of one resort. Are people fishing on the southeast portion of the lake or is it all just **** for now?

Yes, people are fishing the south east corner of the lake. The ice in the bays in the south east corner is locked in good. Some of the resorts have a few rental houses out. Lybacks, Chapmans, and Hunter Winfields are all letting fishermen out with 4 wheelers. Call one of these resorts or one of the bait shops in Isle for more information.

I fished in Wahkon Bay on the SE corner last weekend and the least ice I drilled was 8 inches and 10 in some places.

Tuesday, December 27th:

The north wind today has broken the ice loose from part of the north end again.

The open water hugs the shoreline from west of Myr Mar to the "Junction" (just west of the Wealthwood Rod and Gun Club) and then cuts south about a mile and then east as far as the eye can see. The open gash in the ice runs about at the first mudflat distance from shore and is about 400-500 yards wide.

The area to the east of the Junction along shore is now old ice to old ice--at least for the time being. A north wind could blow it away anytime...so some of the locals have taken houses off while the opportunity is there.

4-wheelers are now being retrieved by pontoon out from Myr Mar Marina.

As long as that open gash is part of the scene, the potential of the shore ice taking off is on the table.

Of course, a big south, west or east wind could make it shift also.

As I saw first hand yesterday and today. It is just nuts on that lake right now. The north and west side is where I was and drove around. Lots of open water and ice heaves all over. Lots of vacant houses floating around on this moving ice. Weird year. I would have liked to have got out but no good for this guy. 2 months left...

Pretty stiff southwest wind blowing this morning. Waves are rolling into our shore at Myr Mar. I wouldn't doubt the big sheet comes back north today, opening more of a gash somewhere to the south.

As expected, the big south wind today (Wednesday)closed the gap on the north half of the lake. It looks like the sheet moved several hundred feet north and crunched up against the older shoreline ice from Myr Mar east. More houses and the last of the wheelers were retrieved today.

So--where did it open to the south?? Looking at today's satellite pic, most of the ice movement today, came AFTER that pic was taken. Near as I can tell....

So the next big north wind sends it south again? Or will it be a completely new open gash on another part of the lake?

What happens with an east wind? Haven't had one of those for two weeks!
