If you're craving a relaxing, lake front fishing trip, then reel in the big one with Special Journeys!

We will be traveling up to Mille Lacs in northern Minnesota to catch some big Walleye. Mille Lacs is known for some of the best walleye fisheries in the Country. The lake is over 132,000 acres, so they've got plenty of space to grow some large fish. You may just be lucky enough to catch one yourself! Lake Mille is Minnesota's second largest lake, with 76 miles of shoreline. The average depth is around 20 feet, but some spots can get up to 40 feet. Life jackets are required to be worn on the water, but don't worry we will provide those for you, as well as fishing bait, nets, rods, and reels. We'll even have your fishing license for you, all you need to do is show up!

The 40-foot launch where we'll be fishing from offers a grill, bathroom and plenty of room to walk around on. Sounds like luxury fishing to us! These launches are a 70-year tradition on Lake Mille Lacs. We will have professional fishing guides who will show us where we will have the best chances of catching the Walleye. They'll be checking the daily fishing report for news on where to find the best fish. Our guides will also assist us with everything necessary such as getting ready, handling the rods & reels, determining where to cast, how to cast, helping us reel the monster fish in and getting it off the hook, if necessary. They'll also let us know which bait to use to attract the biggest fish in the lake. And as a special treat, you'll get to take some fish home! We will focus on fishing for Walleye and Jumbo Perch but may catch a few Northern Pike, Crappie and Bass all while enjoying the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of the Northwoods.
