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

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
