Checking old attitudes at the door, we're not on a quest to harvest as many fish as possible, and we'd never measure a successful day in pounds of fish killed.

Mission Statement: ​The Mille Lacs Smallmouth Alliance is a 501(c)(3)  charitable non-profit organization, recognized under IRC 401(a). The Alliance is dedicated to rebuilding, preserving and maintaining Mille Lacs as a world class trophy smallmouth bass fishery. Our work will include: educating fishermen, local businesses and visitors to the lake about the benefits of catch and release and advocating with conservation officials about sound fish management practices. We believe a healthy trophy smallmouth bass fishery contributes to the economic vitality of the Mille Lacs Lake area through tourism and overall property values and a robust community. Plus, taking care of a precious natural resource is just the right thing to do.​
