This starts the best time of year for fishing in the Brainerd Lakes Area, that is not just my opinion. Of course catching fish is still not automatic, but it gets pretty close as we move on through September. I was last out on Gull last Friday with Dave Copham and his buddies Rick and Mick and we managed 11 walleyes during our evening trip. Then it was over to Mille Lacs on Saturday for a little musky fishing where I met up with Brian and Ray Dewitt. It was a gorgeous day and we ended up with two follows and saw another from a distance. My wife and son met me over there for the afternoon and we ended up finding a nice school of large, smallmouth bass! What a blast it is reeling in a 17-21 inch smallmouth, Shelley though she had a musky on. So, the fishing action is heating up, but it’s also deer opener on Saturday here in Minnesota and Wisconsin. I’m looking forward to getting out with my son here in MN and with Todd Hess over in Wisconsin. We will be hunting with crossbow in WI, as they are now opening that up to the general public this year. One more thing to add to the calendar, the 2nd annual Walleyedan’s Fishing To End Hunger walleye tournament coming up on October 4th on the Gull Lake Chain.
