Brainerd, Minnesota
Fishing Report: 1-15-17
Happy New Year Everyone! The last few weeks have been extremely cold with temperatures dipping as low as minus 32 degrees on several past mornings. The conditions have been great for making ice but not much fun for ice fishing. Hopefully the predicted warm up will materialize next week and we can get back to better fishing conditions. The crappie fishing has been good on many of the smaller lakes in the area. Key locations are deep water holes near sharp breaking points. The crappies were very aggressive before the big chill and they would fly up off the bottom to take jigging spoons. Slower methods of presentation are more effective at this time. The walleye bite has been fair to good on Gull Lake. Key times are the forty-five minutes windows around sunrise and sunset. Mille Lacs has been producing numbers of fish these last few weeks. Key locations are the tops of most flats in 24 to 27 feet of water. Jigging spoons were deadly before the big freeze but set lines are now out performing other methods at this time.
