Iceman, I am only 30-40 minutes away from Mille Lacs and will be trying to stay on top of the incredible Perch bite ! I have my 13year old and a 7 year old (he is iffy on the fish thing). I was running out of Castaways last year with good success. If your game lets stay in contact!
I am already pumped for this years all guys drinking/fishing/poker weekend on Mille Lacs. Last year we rented out of Rocky Reef and had a great time (atleast from the little I remember).
The Rockman is a nice guy and fun to BS with. He really seems to know his area as well. We ended up going really late in the year so the bite was really slow. We weren't really in any condition to be running all over looking for the active fish though.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
