Mille Lacs Lake
Mille Lacs is located some 90 miles north of Minneapolis/ St. Paul and approximately 60 miles east of Brainerd. At 132,516 acres Mille Lacs is Minnesota's second largest inland lake with a maximum depth of 42 feet. It is home to some of the Midwest's best trophy smallmouth bass fishing. When the lake was formed by glaciers thousands of years ago, the glaciers deposited rock/gravel/sand over the southern portion of Mille Lacs, thus creating a perfect habitat for smallmouth bass, walleye and musky. The Minnesota DNR manages the smallmouth fishery at Mille Lacs as a trophy catch and release lake. Only one fish over 21" may be taken. Because of this Mille Lacs has a thriving population of smallmouth bass in the 3 to 6 pound class. Double digit fishing days are not uncommon.
