Mille Lacs is nationally recognized as one of the nation’s top smallmouth bass fisheries.
In 2017, Bassmaster Magazine named Mille Lacs the number one bass fishing lake in the nation.
Beginning May 25, Mille Lacs’ daily bag and possession limit will be three bass per angler. All smallmouth and largemouth bass between 17 and 21 inches must be immediately released. Anglers may keep only one bass over 21 inches.
In a change this year, smallmouth bass are catch-and-release only on Mille Lacs from Sept. 9 through Feb. 23 to be consistent with statewide regulations.
