Mille Lacs Lake Fishing Info

Walleyes- Minnesota's premerie fish to catch!


Mille Lacs lake is well known for its production of BIG walleyes 26-30 inch size walleye  are caught daily. Along with all the big walleyes in the lake we have had a couple of great year classes of  walleyes that are now in the 18 -21 inch range and these walleyes are plentiful all over the lake.  This year 2018 has been classified by the DNR as catch and release only for walleye. 2018 was one of the best walleye bites ever and with very few walleyes being kept I expect the 2019 bite to be awesome!


Smallmouth Bass

Bassmasters Magazine ranked Mille Lacs #1 in the Nation















Its no secret anymore. We guides have known for years that this is a world class smallmouth bass fishery. Now the Bassmasters Tournament series has caught on. The top Bass Fishing pros in the world were here for The 2016 Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Tournament at Mille Lacs Lake and they put up some serious Bassmasters record weights and they came back again in 2017 and did it again

2018 Bass Regulations: May 12th - May 26th is catch and release only, after that possession limit is 3 with 1 over 21 inches. All bass 17-21 Inches must be released

Mutli Species Guide Trips
I am one of the top Multi Species guides on the lake. The only fish I do not guide for is Muskie.  If you would like to fish a variety of species in an 8 hour trip please let me know as each species requires a 
little different fishing gear and tackle to be placed in the boat.
