Big water, big fish
Mille Lacs Lake's big waters are producing big smallmouth bass. Just ask anglers who have learned when, where and how to land these prized red-eyed bronze-backed giants.

With the right equipment and know-how, you can fish deeper out on the big lake. But the rocky shorelines and bays of the southern shores around Isle, Father Hennepin State Park and Wahkon are ideal places to try more conventional smallmouth tactics.
