launches

4 posts in this topic

We are coming up to Mille Lacs for the first time first weekend in october. We are planning on staying in a cabin and taking a launch in the morning, does anyone have any advice if we should bring our own boat? some people say a launch is great and some people hate them. any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

I would recommend Garrison Sport. We did a night launch with them this past Fri night and caught some eyes, it was slower but a great night to be on the water. i think we ended up with about 10 eyes. Then on Sat. we did a mid day trip with them for a batchelor party and had a blast. We got into a bunch of biggggg perch, some eyes, biggest being 27", and a couple of nice smallies. They do a great job there. Been using them as a launch for many years and yet to be dissapointed.

That time of year I would do a night trip on the rocks. I think you would have more fun and get more fish.

It all depends on if you know the lake or not. I'd normally prefer my own boat, but we take them from time to time just because it's easy and with most you don't need to bring much other than food or beverages if you wish. Look up Captain Hooks. They're a good group with reasonable rates to boot.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
