Fishing Report for June 19, 2017   Fishing Report - April 2017  

Walleyes are being taken on Gull, Whitefish, North Long and Pelican. We are starting to see fish get into their mid summer patterns and haunts. Walleyes are being taken on the inside and outside of wind blown weed lines on shorelines and mid lake structure. Check the points and inside turns of these weed areas. Look for good cabbage or coontail growth focusing on the 10-15 foot depths. The minnow bite is starting to switch to a leech and crawler bite as summer rolls around. Fishing a jig and a fathead, slip float and leech, or a Lindy rig with a redtail, leech, or nightcrawlers are all working, along with trolling crankbaits in the late evenings or after dark. Bring it all along and see what's working that day.


Goodluck,
Walleyedan's Guide Service

Meet the Fishing Guide: Walleyedan
Local fishing guide Walleyedan is passionate and knowledgeable about fishing in Minnesota lakes and specifically about the Brainerd Lakes Area fishing lakes. He has been guiding since 1989 and is passionate about the MN outdoors, fishing and helping others find the fun in fishing.

  Spring is in the air. Ice is going off the lakes. Rivers are flowing and fish are on the move. Most game fish spawn in the springtime. Walleye and pike spawn first and then panfish, bass, and last but not least, musky. With fishing opener a month away we can focus our efforts on crappies, sunfish, perch, and whitefish.

Before we go fishing it is a good idea to check rods, reels, tackle, and fishing line. Cleaning rods and reels ensure years of reliability. When your gear is working properly, there are less chances of losing big fish. Clean reels and check rods for cracks and broken or chipped guides. Now is also the time to put new fishing line on every rod. It may look ok, but why risk it? New line performs better and is stronger. It is also the time to go through your tackle. Clean what you can and discard broken and rusty tackle. This also makes room for new tackle and everyone enjoys buying the latest and greatest. Also taking the time to organize tackle and gear now will save you time on the water- even tying up a few rods if you know what you will be fishing for first. If you own a boat, now is the time to test batteries, organize, clean, and clear compartments. Check pumps, rope, and electronics. Don’t forget to also look over your trailer, check tires, winch strap, wheel bearings, and brakes. Proper maintenance ensures more time enjoying being on the water.

Have a great spring and see you out there,

Todd Andrist
