Mille Lacs Lake near Aitkin, Minnesota
Super Walleyes are being taken through the ice on this legendary lake this season, Almost 130,000 acres and lengthy shoreline basins are pulling their weight this season. Try and avoid the Ice Shack sitting and take the mobile approach by drilling a lot of holes and spending no more than 10 Minutes per hole on a reasonable weather day...subtle overcast and mild for cold if you know what I mean.
The Salmo- Chubby Darter http://www.marinegeneral.com/productcatalog.asp?parentid=10946&directoryid=11730 its the go to rig in bluish/ greenish sky hues for a vertical jig approach...The flat hard-bottom beds near shore that carry clam bed shoals and even the zebras are the best place to start work and rattling baits literally call them in from 15-20 feet away over rip rap. http://www.youtube.co/watch?v=dVeddpYbcJA
Check out Brad Hawthorne and Derik Walcheski use summertime waypoints to target huge walleyes on Mille-Lacs. Their approach to these basin walleyes is typical for Lake of the Woods and Upper Red Lake, but it's a fairly new technique for the gin clear water on Mille-Lacs Lake! This is a great technique and will keep you moving instead of sitting on your but all day.
