North end of Mille Lacs - enough water to launch???

10 posts in this topic

Reading recent posts indicate that the water-levels are so low that many public boat ramps are virtually unusable!?!?! Is there anywhere to launch a boat on the north end that has deep enough water? Either private (fee) or public???

I am planning a trip during the first week of August, and am seriously considering going elsewhere if the boat-ramps are in that poor of shape!!!!

Any suggestions. Fishing the north end of the lake is my first choice!

Thanks in advance for your input!!!

Red Door is just fine. For $10 it's the way to go if you want the North end. It is however a pretty popular spot.

If you want to head down a little, Agate Bay is very good.

I launched from the Wharf last week and it was just fine. It's private and costs $10, but it was deep enough, wasn't busy and although it's on the E/SE side of the lake, it's pretty easy to get to just about anywhere on the lake.

Agate is also $10 but worth it. No matter how hard or which way the wind blows. Launching & loading up is never a problem grin.gif

Agree with that. They dredged it out early in the year. It does get shallow past their channel, but that area is shallow anyway. No problem going slow with my 18' boat until it drops off.

Many thanks to you all!!!!

With your advice and information, I have booked a 4-night stay at Fisher's Resort. They did have a cabin available, a decent launch, and they even will allow me to bring Tank and Ms. Jasmine, (my two wonder-labs), with me!!!!

NOW.., can any of you do anything with the weather??? Sure would be nice to get a little reprieve from this heat!!!!

Thanks again all.

Randy

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report
