Mille Lacs is one of the few Minnesota lakes big enough to accommodate launches for Minnesota fishing convenience. At McQuoid’s Inn, we carry on the 70-year old tradition, offering morning, afternoon and evening departures with half-day, full-day and evening launch options. Private charters are available for groups of 5 up to 100, as well as open launch trips for singles, couples, families and other groups.

We furnish the bait, tackle and expert fishing advice. All you have to do is bring your fishing license, a camera, your food and beverage, and appropriate dress for the weather forecast. The fishing can be fantastic with trophy walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike and muskellunge roaming these waters. Whether you are fishing or enjoying a social outing, favorite launch activities include sharing fishing stories, maybe enjoying a catered meal, spending some time grilling yourself a juicy burger or steak, watching for eagles or enjoying the beautiful sunset.

***McQuoid’s Inn supports catch and release of Smallmouth Bass on Mille Lacs Lake.

***We love kids who love to fish, however, for the enjoyment of all guests, open launch trips are restricted to ages 5 and up.

***Bachelor Parties must privately charter launch boats, McQuoid’s Inn does not allow bachelor party groups on open/public launches.

The licensed launch boat captains are experienced fishermen and will always keep safety first, work hard to find the fish and make sure you are having a great time. They will give fishing advice and teach you some new techniques. If you want, they’ll bait your hook for you and even clean and package your catch!

McQuoids also Offers First Class Individual and Small Group Guide Service on Mille Lacs.
