Eyeslayer, can't answer your question on the time frame, but I would give Garrison Sports a call. I've fished with them during the summer months and have always been happy with the service. Good luck. Bill

Call ahead and see what dates they pull the launches. If you get to do it, do the night run form 6-10. You cathc the most fish then. I went out of Twin Pines last year around this time and our boat caught a lot of fish including a 31". cool.gif

Team Otter there will be 6 of us total. Never even crossed my mind that they will be shutting down. Thank you every one for your help.

I spoke to a resort in Garrison today who said their last day would probably be October 20.

One of the best times of the year too fish on Mille Lacs, definatly fish the night trip though. Lots of big walleyes are caught this time of year. Bring your bib's and winter coat.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on 
    • Big A
      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
