Hey everybody. I'm going to say that Bluegoose/Garrison sports' fishing launches are the best around, the crew is kind and friendly, Steve on the big pontoon is one of the funniest fellas you could ever meet. Very clean boat (probably the cleanest bathroom too, to all the lady readers on here), kind baitboys who know what they are doing and take pride in their job. Great Walleye and Perch fishing, even the occasional small mouth bass. They do do Northern Pike trips but if your going to I suggest doing a small group of 5-9 or 10. Very spacious. Good for group gatherings, bachelor parties, or anything you have in mind. If you wanna do some hanging out with friends and loved ones, I strongly suggest going on one of these launches. Like I said earlier if you go try and get onto the Pontoon with Steve and his gang. Season for the launches begins on Saturday, May 12, 2012. The easiest way to set up a group gathering is by calling the Bluegoose in Garrison, MN and asking for the off-sale. Talk to the person on the other side and set up your day of enjoyment. The off-sale has a ton beer and ice so don't worry about bringing your own, and right next to it on either side is Super America and the Bluegoose restaurant. You can go and get your snacks and such. All and all its really a lot of fun, even for an avid fisherman like myself. I strongly recommend getting the chance to get out on the "big toon".
