Fishing Report 6-28-18

Hello all you fishers! Catching any? Hope so, because the action has been pretty darn good here in the lakes area! We are catching all species and we have have more good days than slow ones as of late! We have boated a number of trophy walleye this season and I’m getting the feeling that this isn’t going to stop anytime really soon. We have been catching fish on Gull, Whitefish, Pelican, North Long and Round. These are the lakes in our backyard and this has been a good season thus far on most of them. The fish we are finding are in less than 20 feet and mainly having in and around the fresh weed growth. If you are wanting to get out on the water, call Shelley at 218-839-5598 and she will get you in the book with one of our guides. We have a group of guides, so if you have a corporate outing and you want to go have some fun, call us! We just had the guys out from HyVee and Trident Foods and had a good time.

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,
Todd Andrist
