Good guide or launch service

8 posts in this topic

A friend is trying to put together a fishing outing for 6 to 10 of his customers. Anyone know of a guide or launch service that you would recomend to bring this number of people out for 4 to 6 hours of fishing? Any info would be appreciated.

One day trip or where will you be staying? I am partial to the NW end of the lake near Garrison, that is nearest to the cabin. I have used MyrMar, GArrison sports, and the Blue Goose. We caught nice fish on every outing. One tip to get more fish on a luanch... get in the very rear of boat. when anchored and slip bobbering this will keep your bait in front of the fish longer. when your on the side of the boat you will have to reel in and cast out more often because the current will pull your line intop other people and get tangles. good luck!

Thanks for the info. I've fished Mille Lacs for many years out of my own boat or the boats of a couple friends. I just have never needed to hire a guide or launch. My friend knows even less about it.

Eastwind,

On the east side of Mille Lacs Lake there is Appeldoorn's, Fishers, Hunters Point that have launches and great accomedations for you.

I will not be available to guide this summer due to our parkmodel business (www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com)For open water guide services Appeldoorn's and Hunters Point uses Tony Roach and am in the process of adding another well known guide to our guide services here within the next month. I would be happy to assist you to book a trip with Tony or any of our other guides through Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay. Just drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to assist you or anyone else.

Fish On!!!

Last fall, I went out of Twin Pines on thier late night launcha and they put us onto some big fish. I would have to agree that the back is the best because my dad and I outfished almost everyone else 2 to 1.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.
