Good guide or launch service

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.

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
