We finally got out Ice House out on Mille Lacs on January 22. We are trying a new spot on a flat this year. Still out of Hunters Point. I spent the better part of the weekend up there after getting the fish house all set up. The ice thickness was 17" where we were at. Not much snow on the ice.
The fishing was excellent. The Rattle Reels kept me going all night. During the day I was jigging. This walleye was 16". I caught a number of them in this size range leaving me to believe the future of the lake is looking good. The lure I am using here is a Johnson Thin Fin. We are in 29 feet of water.
