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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
