There are a few different patterns on our lakes right now. Mille Lacs continues to exceed expectations, it is just awesome out there this year. We have been taking many of our customers over to Mille Lacs. With the chance to catch 30,40,50 fish in a few hours it is tough to go anywhere else. The mud flats and the gravel areas are working best for us. Crawlers or leeches on a live bait rig is like walleye candy, they can't get enough. Gull has been a little spotty for walleyes. Most of the better fish are up in the weeds and a little tougher to get at. We've been able to pull spinners through the weeds and pluck a walleye out now and then. Out on the weed edges all we seem to be able to find are the little buggers. The whitefish chain has been pretty consistent. We are seeing lots of nice fish in 12-22 feet. Spinners, live bait rigs, or split shot rigs, tipped with a redtail, leech, or Gulp nightcrawler are all catching fish. Weedline points and inside turns are holding fish on whitefish. Lots of pike too, so be prepared to retie every so often. Pelican is also producing a few walleyes. It is different from day to day on Pelican and it has taken some searching.

The bass have been puting on the feedbag now. Plastics or weed weasles tipped with a redtail chub are slamming bass. Most lakes are going good. Our favorites have been Hubert, Gull, North Long, and Cullen.

The pike have been going good on the smaller lakes. Nothing huge but good action in anything with a spinner or bobber fishing with medium to large sucker minnows. Early mornings have been the best time.

Good Luck this weekend. Here are a few pics from recent trips: http://www.sportlandbait.com/brainerd_nisswa_fishing_pictures.html

Bad idea. Mille Lacs is just too good right now. It sure can spoil an angler.

Just kidding! Good Luck and have fun.

I heard they had a huge bug hatch the last 2 nights so be where of that. It probably will still fish way above average the way the bite has been this year on ML.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
