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?

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

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.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
