Launch on 7/14

6 posts in this topic

I'm going out on a launch on Saturday July, 14th. We are leaving at 6 P.M. and returning at 10 P.M.. Anyone have any clue as to if this is a good time for Walleye? Any suggestions for bait?

I am headed to Garrison Sports on Thursday for our 4th launch trip. Its provided by one of our glass vendors and is always a good time. We leave the dock at 700 and return at 1100pm. We have always caught fish during those hours. Last year 12 guys boated 26 fish with 11 legal keepers, the rest were 24-27". Will be headed back to our cabin at Knife Lake for a few days of C/R on the pannies. Should be a good time. You should do well during the 6-1000PM hours, good luck. Bill

Toward dark should be good. The launch should be providing the bait? Usually they provide everything unless you want to use your own stuff. You may want to check with them before you buy bait.

terrys launch out of garrison is the best launch to go on and the best time is between 10pm till 2am. and they supply bait and the poles if you dont have one. but my dad and i have been going out of terrys for 17 years and the best time is 10-2 so you guys can do whatever you want... but if i were you i would head out on terrys. good luck.

fISHED OUT OF Garrison Sports on Thursday. Fished 7-1130PM boated 15 fish one in the slot at 14 1/4". the rest went from 19"-27 1/2". Fished Garrison Reef and then headed for deep water near Myr Mar. Several people on the boat had not fished wallies before, and one of those missed 5 bites in a row. All in All good time, quick pics and the big boys were back in the water. Everything provided, leeches, rods and soda's. Bill

It was a good time on Saturday, my Dad caught a 22 inch Walleye, and a friend got a 25 incher. Too bad we couldn't keep them though.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
