Isle Bay is a charming little fishing village with a population of about 700. We are tucked away on Mille Lacs’ southeast corner. Isle is recently home to an Ice Fishing Reality Pilot that may air in 2013. TV Crews descended on our town in May 2012 and started filming during ice fishing season in 2013. The premise of the pilot, according to recent press, is to celebrate the culture of ice fishing in and around Isle, Minnesota. 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!
From our bay, in the summer 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.
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.
