Fishing is Simply Incredible in the Brainerd Lakes Area

Posted by:

It was a fairly slow start to the 2019 open water season but in the past 3 weeks, fishing has turned into maybe the best summer walleye pattern that I can remember.  The fish are staying shallow and they are actively feeding during the daylight hours.  Simply find green weeds in the 7-10 foot mark and you are going to find actively feeding walleyes. Just make sure you bring enough bait along because you are not only going to catch ...

The Panfish are Going Ballistic in the Brainerd Lakes Area

In the past 2 weeks we have seen ice conditions drastically improve for lake travel. Auto travel is done but you can still access the lakes via ATV, UTV and snowmobiles.
