You are guaranteed the best location, price, and quality on Mille Lacs. Join us for your next fishing vacation…you won’t be sorry you did.

Isle Bay is a charming little fishing village with a population of about 700. We are tucked away  on Mille Lacs’ southeast corner – you will find yourself only a block from Main Street where there are unique shops and other conveniences such as a coffee shop, bars, and restaurants.

Our lake has some of the best Smallmouth Bass, Trophy Walleye, Northern Pike, Muskie and Pan fishing in the state! And, if you aren’t in to fishing , we cater to casual boaters, hikers, bikers, snowmobilers, ATVers and more….there is so much to Lake Mille Lacs, come see for yourself.

During the Ice Fishing Season, Mille Lacs boasts approximately 5,000 ice fishing shacks each year. If you are here to do some ice fishing, check out our Ice Fishing Wheelhouse Rentals which are like no other … DirecTV, stove, oven and bathroom!

In the summer months, you will enjoy breathtaking sunsets over Father Hennepin while casting a line off our 200′ white oak pier. Catch walleye, northern, bass, or pan fish including perch and sunfish. This year we have had some of the biggest fish ever off the dock – a few over 28″ even as well as some nice keepers!

About Mille Lacs

Mille Lacs is Minnesota’s second largest lake best known for walleye, smallmouth bass, and muskie fishing. Mille Lacs is 132,500 acres and stretches 18 miles in one direction and over 20 miles the other direction. Our southern half of the lake is known for its gravel and rock bars. Even if you aren’t here to fish, visitors enjoy casual cruises around the lake where you’ll find Hennepin Island and Spirit Island which together make up a national wildlife refuge.  Mille Lacs is home to walleye, northern muskie, jumbo perch, bass (large and small mouth), crappie, eelpout, and tullibee. In the winter, more than 5,000 ice fishing houses decorate the landscape. Read more about Mille Lacs Lake.
