Fishing in the Brainerd lakes area has remained consistent. Water is slowly starting to warm up and we are about 2 weeks behind normal. Bass action remains fairly shallow and seem to be biting just about anything. The bluegills have just finished up spawning and are heading for the cabbage beds. Crappie fishing has been spotty with fish being caught in cabbage weed along the breaks.Walleye fishing has been the most consistent at dawn and dusk into evening casting and trolling jerk baits. Best depths have been from about 4 to 8 feet.
Fish can be shallow and deep this time of year so keep an open mind.
Good luck! Todd Andrist Mnwalleyeguide.com
