Yrs ago I believe it was the south side of Mille Lacs that was the best for ice fishing for eyes and perch. Never ice fished there but did open water fish….we used to catch a ton of fat perch. Had some great taverns around the lake……good pick em up joints! Jason, leave the wives home and you and your buds make a trip there….pretty sure you could get laid.
Went to a fish house on Mille Lacs once and never picked up the first rod, but still had a killer time. To this southern boy, its crazy as hEll driving a truck that far out on the ice. You could get lost if there wasnt roads and maps.
