I need some advice on fishing Mille Lacs in late Sept. I've never fished this lake. I'm staying in Ilse,Mn. and fishing with my 88 year old dad. I rented a pontoon so it will be easier for him to fish. I have no idea what to use to catch a few fish with him. Scott13

Scott, you have picked a very challenging time of the year to go on the big pond. The weather conditions will be your biggest concern. Going out of the isle area could be tricky if a big storm comes through with a strong NW wind. That time of the year usually bring the big storms, so watch the weather. The fall patterns usually revolve around shallow rock piles. Trolling cranks in the dark, or soaking leeches or minnows early and late. The bouys that mark these spots will likely be pulled for the winter. So natural markers like Hennipen Island might work for you. (I'm assuming that a lake loaded GPS will not be as option for you, fish locator?). That's a good area to start from. Do your homework, and keep asking for updates right up to when you are leaving.

Welcome aboard Scott! I have thought about this reply most of the day and I think Dave really has stated it wisely. Please do your homework this lake in late September can be a monster in seconds with a pontoon. But it sounds like you have the reservations so make the most out of it. Pulling cranks around I think is your best bet. Get a GPS with a map chip or a good lake map and have fun.

I fished from Isle in my lil 14-ft boat/w 5-hp motor and just fished the deep weedline near the landing so we could make it to shore if the wind picked up. Using minnows, we caught all kinds of fish, including a small musky.

Well, Maybe we will have to spend more time at the casino than fishing. I was told that fishing up there was best later in Sept. rather than earlier. I guess we'll take what comes boys. Thanks for your input.

Okay boys, I'm a week away from my trip to Mille Lacs has any one got any news on how the fishing is or what I should bring with me? I'm praying for some decent weather. No snow or sleet I hope.
