Alright boys I have one week until my Mille Lacs trip. I am looking for any tips on the Twin Pines area. We will be staying in one of their houses God willing from friday the 5th through sunday the 7th.
Anyone have any experience in that area? I have never fished that part of the lake before so i could use some help.
Also does anyone know much about the resort itself, I have heard good things about them and I am hoping they are all true. I am hoping that they will also be willing to give us a ride out to our rental since I don't think driving cars out will be an option and we don't have a 4 wheeler. Does anyone know if that is a service they provide?
I have a buddy who is supposed to be calling them to get more info but i thought while I am stuck at work today I thought I would see what you guys have to say.
If they aren't under the house we'll just have to go find them ourselves. Fishing a new area like this without flashers it will take a certain amount of luck and maybe a little skill mixed in I'm sure.
Iceman, I would appreciate any reports if you do find yourself in that area. I have heard alot of good things about Twin Pines, I am really hoping they are willing and able to give rides out to their houses if the ice isn't driveable.
I went out and got ice cleats before my first trip out this year. The last time out we walked over a mile out to an area we wanted to fish and with out the cleats it would have been impossible. I told the rest of my crew to go buy them as well. I hope they take my advice.
My buddy called twin pines today to check on conditions and they said they have 13 inches of ice and are starting to pull the houses out from the bay and into deeper water. It sounds like trucks are driving out in that area but I am a little nervous taking my car out there so I am hoping the resort might be willing to shuttle us out still.
I think I might try to rent a Vex from Lundeens on the way up. That should help even the odds a little.
I heard a report at the bar last night. The bouncer had just talked to a bud on the south end. 2 16"'s in the bucket, a 25" & 28 1/2" released, 3 broken lines and 2 missed hits. I think they need to learn how to set their drag.
Don't know how long they were fishing.

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
