Good guide or launch service

Recommended Posts

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.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
