Summer Patterns are in Full Swing

Posted by:

The beauty about the Brainerd Lakes Area is there never really is a time of the year where we have horrible fishing.  Even the “dog days of summer” can be absolutely awesome. We are still in early July but some of these warm temps have fishing patterns acting as if we were in August and that’s ok with me!

One phenomenon that I have been witnessing is a fairly strong and very shallow thermocline in even small lakes.  If my locator ...

Brainerd Fishing is Holding On Despite the Weather

Posted by:

I am not sure whats the deal with Mother Nature this spring, but she sure seems to have it for us sportsmen and women!  The has been nothing short of crazy and in the last week we have seen ranges from the low 90’s for highs to the low 40’s for lows.  The lakes certainly didn’t need the big swing in temps with many of the sunfish family of fishes spawned out, currently or getting ready to spawn.

Despite the weird ...

Crappie and Bluegill are on Fire and Walleyes are Nocturnal in the BLA

What a wonderful weather weekend I. The Brainerd Lakes Area.  It sure was a pleasant experience weather wise.  The fishing was pretty dang good too if you put your work in.

Plenty of Ice Left in the Brainerd Lakes Area

I am normally home for weekends but this past weekend was a little different.  I had the privilege to film an episode for Jason Mitchell Outdoors at Wekusko Falls Lodge in northern Manitoba targeting giant lake trout.  Fish up to 40+ inches seen day light and it is going to be an awesome episode to say the least!   I did get the chance to rip a few lips myself catching several walleyes and a really nice pike.

Brainerd Area Lakes Have Turned Over and the Fishing Remains Excellent

What I really enjoy about this time of the year is the fish generally do the same thing each year.  If you have a waypoint from years past, it doesn’t matter what the species is, the fish will be there.  You can truly fish by memory and succeed, especially on the smaller lakes.

After a quick filming trip to South Dakota, on Thursday I was joined in the boat by ...

THE WALLEYE BITE IS ON FIRE!

September 17th, 2017

The walleye bite is on fire on the Brainerd Lakes Area and the backdrop is amazing as we approach the fall color peak.

For the better part of last week I had to be in Montana to film an elk hunt but when I got back but when I did it was game on!

The first fishing venture on Saturday morning was back to Hubert ...
