Legendary lake, unforgettable fishing

Mille Lacs lake

Changing lake still offers world-class opportunities

Minnesota's third-largest lake covering 207 square-miles is a special place where lasting memories are made. You're certain to catch the walleye that made Mille Lacs famous but fishing is phenomenal for bass, northern pike and muskellunge as well.
