Well don’t bother to come up for opener. Still ice on lake. Most of the lake is iced out but I still won’t risk it. Plus it’s catch and release only for walleye.

The area was nice but lacked restaurants. One placed we went to was on Dam Lake. It was a restaurant/bar place. The waitress was unbelievably rude. It's a dump, choose another place! Stay away from a private cabin owned by Lowell H. !

It's great to be on big water without being way up north. I think the resorts here are also full of great people so Mille Lacs is a great place to visit. The fishing can be wonderful even though one cannot keep many of the...More
