Mille Lacs Lake Ice Report – December 28, 2020 from Brad Hawthorne

We checked ice all the way to the mud and found some surprises but overall some good clear black ice with a few frozen cracks and some ice heaves. Ice is anywhere from 11.5” near shore to 9 inches a few miles out. There are some spots with pile up and we cover that in the video.


This is by no means an approval to go FULL SEND on bombing out to the mud from anywhere. The ice conditions on the lake vary and the best advice is to always, always check with us or the resort you are going out of for the latest conditions. We have some snow coming in tomorrow that we will be monitor for flooding but the 5 days forecast for lows looks good to build on the ice we have that has settled in nicely so far. Good luck fishing and if you are looking to get up in January drop us line.
