Good bye August, hello fall fishing and hunting season! The acorns are dropping like I’ve never seen before and the Farmers Almanac is calling for a brutal winter. I guess we will see. For now, our focus will continue to be on the remainder of the open water guiding season. It’s been a busy one and the fishing has been pretty darn good (overall). The walleye fishing is only going to get better as we move on into September, and unfortunately this is when a lot of people stop thinking about fishing. We have been fishing Gull Lake for the most part and are finding the fish in 15-30’ and catching them on live bait rigs tipped with either red tail chubs or creek chubs. If you have the itch to fish, please call Shelley and book a trip today. Our guides will continue to fish until we can no longer put the boats in the water. At that time, it will be time for the SnoBear! We are taking reservations for guided SnoBear trips right now, and you can find more info on our website under the ice fishing tab. I hope you enjoy the beautiful Labor Day weekend that is forecast. For more information, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Brainerd Fishing Report – August

Spring is in the air. Ice is going off the lakes. Rivers are flowing and fish are on the move. Most game fish spawn isept-2n 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 sept-1everyone 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,
