Launch question for Labor Day weekend? Where to go?

7 posts in this topic

Our family is planning a trip up to mille lacs over labor day. We have decided to leave the boats home and do more of the family thing. I have never done the whole launch thing , but am excited to hear about some reports and get advice about where to go. Should we stay up north and get reservations up there or should we concentrate on the south end of the lake. If anyone could help me out and give some good advice about the people and locations, I would greatly appreciate the help.

Thank you - Trevor Fey

I would highly recommend the launches out of Garrison Sports. Hard working guys and do everything can to put you on fish, however some days they just ain't bitin. I've used them several times, good luck. Bill

Friday Night: Took home 6 keepers (2 people). I think the boat caught 30 fish total

Saturday Morning: 1 eye on the boat.

The night bite is the way to go. A lot of fun and they put you on the fish. We went out of Eddy's, but I think most of the launches had the same sucess.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
