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 ...

Excellent Fishing All Across the Brainerd Lakes Area

Posted by:

This past week has been simply an incredible week for fishing in the Brainerd Lakes Area.  We covered so many lakes including several new lakes and revisited a few from the past that we haven’t been to this year.  One thing was for sure, the fishing was nothing short of excellent everywhere and for everything we fished!

I must eat a little humble pie however.  Just like the weather this year, the bluegill spawn was a weird one.  We hit a ...

What an awesome week it has been for fishing in the Brainerd Lakes Area despite the rain we have been receiving.  Bass, crappies and bluegills have all in their post spawn patterns and walleyes are starting to transition into their mid summer patterns.

The bluegills have finished their spawn and have transitioned nicely to the weedy points and inside turns.  Fish have been fairly active at all times of the day.  Fishing a slip bobber ...

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.

I was a little shocked at the lack of active walleyes and pike during the day light hours. In fact we only hooked one pike all day.Walleye Continue Reading →

We are Ice Free in the Brainerd Lakes Area and the Fish are Biting!

Posted by:

What a strange year for ice off it has been.  a week ago last Friday I was walking on solid ice pounding a spud bar as hard as I could and I thought there was no way the ice was going to be gone.  Fast forward four days, the ice was GONE!  Then lets fast forward to this past Saturday and the water temps were 52.8 when I got on the water and was up to 54.1 when I left. ...

Ice is Starting to Decline in the Brainerd Lakes Area

Posted by:

I did a bunch of driving around today and visited 10 different lakes and the ice is in various conditions.  But what really confused me is some of the lakes that normally have the earliest ice out have solid ice all around them yet and some of the larger lakes have had shores open up.  I am done trying to understand this year!

What I found was Lower South Long Lake had a large amount of shoreline that was open.  This ...

Plenty of Ice Left in the Brainerd Lakes Area

Posted by:

 

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 Lakes Area Fishing Report: Oct 2017

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 ...
