Brainerd Fishing Report: 4-24-16
The weatherman threw us a bone this last week. The crappies were quick to respond to the warmer weather. The best crappie action has been taking place in backwater areas with dark, soft, bottoms. Light jigs, tipped with a minnow, suspended below a casting bubble have been the best lures for these situations. Key water depths were less than three feet. There was some deep water cabbage action taking place on a few of the larger lakes, but nothing compared to the bite going on in the shallow water. The weather forcast looks colder this coming week. I hope it changes. The website work is still on going. We hope you like the look. Gotta run.

Nice Crappie!

Brainerd Fishing Report: 4-14-16
Sorry for the delay, or more precisely, the lack of Brainerd fishing reports these last few months. We have been doing a MAJOR overhaul of the website. Some of the code was almost twenty years old. It's hard to believe. The new launch is up and running. New features will be appearing shortly. I hope you like the new look. That being said, let's get down to business. The weather man has finally thrown us a bone. The weather was beautiful today. It's about time. The last three weeks have been in the thirties. The night air is alive with the sound of millions of frogs tonight and I even heard my first loon call of the season. All the lakes are open and just waiting to be fished. I'm planning to take my first fishing trip of the season this Saturday.  Skinny water areas are key locations this time of year. The darker the bottom the better. Good luck to anyone venturing out this weekend. Check out my face book page for updates.

Brainerd Fishing Report: 3-29-16
The month of March is almost gone. And so is much of the ice in the Brainerd Lakes area. Most of the smaller lakes are ice free. The larger lakes like; Gull, Pelican, and North Long still have a few more days. I would expect much of the ice to be gone within the next 6 to 8 days. I was out last night a heard the frogs croaking. I can't tell you how much I love that sound. A person forgets how good spring feels. It is raining as I type this and the wind is blowing 10 to 15 mph. A person couldn't ask for better conditions to eat up the remaining ice. The boat will be on the water before we know it. The rainy trip was put on hold. The river turned muddy. Hopefully it will clear up in the next week or so. Stay posted. The start of the 2016 open water season is close at hand..
Life is Good!
