I have a friend that wants to take a launch trip with about 20-25 guys for a bachelor party in September. What are some of your thoughts on the various launches out on the lake?

I guess I'd want to know how these 20 some guys define "bachelor party"?

My bachelor party was on Mille Lacs last June. We rented a condo at McQuoids and did a launch out of Mac's Twin Bay. (I try to give Rick's advertisers business when I can because this great site is FREE!!)

There was plenty of wine, a good number of walleyes, but no women......which is kind of the way I wanted it. The area bars did a fine job of keeping us happy.

It was an abosolute blast. Probably the best group trip I have ever been on. We had 12 guys and all stayed comfortably in the condo.

I had my bachelor party on Headquarters Launch 7 years ago. I have been back on the same launch every year since. Captain Ray does a fine job of finding fish and helping the inexperienced fishermen. Our last trip was a succesful 70 fish. Last weekend in a night trip I heard he got 100+. If I were booking a trip for a party like yours, have dinner at Headquarters, then hit the night lunch. You will have fun.

P.S. Stay away from Terry's Boat Harbor. I wont go into details just take my word. mad.gif

Vikes,

Just curious.

I also spent my bachalor party on Milly. We used Eddies (BOO). No walleyes but the bottle bass were hitting VERY HARD!! All and all it was a great time. I have used Seguchies launches in the past. They used to have those two brightly colored pontoon boats(rainbow and stars & stripes). I have noticed those boats at a different resort this year. Do they still have launch services? I know they are under different management. They were the best run launches I've been on. I have heard great things about Terry's, but no personal expirence.

      Oh I forgot to mention is was b*#%hing cold.  Minus 33 Saturday morning and -36 on Sunday morning.  We had to leave one sled behind at the cabin on Saturday and it took forever to get the Solo started on the auger.  Maybe time for an electric.     Nice niece catching day Pro-V!!!
    • Mike89
      more slush for you!!!

      My niece got a 28" walleye and a 44" sturgeon the same day a couple days ago.

      That is what we experienced too.  Three of us were up, fished Thurs, Fri, and Sat.  Lots of little ones, sniffers, the type that keep you busy, wear your arm out jigging on.  We only kept 15" eyes and 14" sauger or better and ended up just short of our limit.  Many 14" eyes released along with 13" sauger.  Others indicated a tough bite as well.  There was one group in the cleaning shack that had some, maybe a 1/4th of their catch, in the 16 to 19 inch range.  We fish with fatheads and some frozen emeralds.  Ice thickness-wise, the auger head was just above the shavings pile, so the ice is growing quickly.  Snow on the lake is hard.  Good Luck.

      😫 boy i feel the love here!!!!!!!! interseted to hear what this additional snow did to the lakes!!!!
    • CJH
      That is correct.  We were just up at LOW out of Zippel Bay and as far as we could tell, eveybody up there was out of live shiners.  We were able to stop on the way and pick up live emerald shiners @ Big Dicks Bait Shop in Kelliher.  This was on the 17th, so if you go that route, I'd call first to make sure they still had any.  Fishing was a little slow for us, but it was right when the cold front came screaming in, good luck!

      Thanks for reply, problem is red door isnt letting anyone with wheel house or skid house out to the flat or past the heave,yet. So everyone is kind of pilled up on the first/second breaks. I am thinking once they start allowing more travel it will start to thin out by me. I may give it another week or so and see how it looks. 
    • gunner55
      Yeah, you better stay home, smurfy. 😉 Probably catch more. 😀  We got  a lot here too. NOT!!!  2 1/2 - 3" at most  
    • Parmer
      The key is emerald shiners. The ones you can get in the cities are not the same as emeralds up there. Frozen ones work great for jigging.

      Well I was out off the edge of a mud flat in 32 ft in a great spot away from People. 4 fish Friday through last Sunday. Missed a couple others. Really nice fish. 25 inches was the smallest.  It was a tough bite. I would say maybe a little deeper and I think a big key IMO is getting away from the groups.
