An experienced captain takes passengers out to active fishing spots on Mille Lacs Lake on public and private fishing trips. Public launches zoom out onto the lake in a 40-foot boat equipped with a 150-horsepower mercury motor, navigation systems to help the captain locate fish, and barbecue grills for making hot lunches or burning incriminating documents on the water. Similarly equipped boats conduct private charters in a 46-foot boat that also features a stereo system equipped with mp3 player inputs and reversible lounge chairs. Ex-landlubbers can spend one or four hours relaxing on the lake while they wait for walleye, bass, or perch to bite.

The Wharf Resort

Masters of all-season fishing and camping, The Wharf Resort splashes the calm waters of Lake Mille Lacs with winter and summer activities. Situated on 90 acres of land on the southeastern shore’s Big Point, The Wharf rests in a protected harbor on a sandy, scorpion-free beach. From this point, it launches chartered fishing trips in the summer and rents ice fishing cabins in the winter.

During chartered fishing trips, guides lead groups across Mille Lacs in search of walleye, Bass, Northern Pike, and Loch Ness monsters. They also explain the seasonal movements of the fish, how to select the best tackle, and how to use electronic detection equipment. Once the lake has frozen over, ice fishing cabins rest on fishing spots where fish are known to congregate and watch humans hold sticks. The cabins feature nine fishing holes, 6 bunk beds, bathrooms, an underwater camera, a TV, DVD player, and microwave oven. Throughout the year, RV camping spots invite visitors to spend a night in rustic surroundings, while an on-site restaurant, Toucan's, which is also where customers check-in, serves warm meals in full view of the lake.
