One more trip....where should I go?

4 posts in this topic

Okay. I have a dilemma. A good one at that. I have tons of work coming up but this Sunday I may have the opportunity to go fishing one more time before hard water. I am an hour from Brainerd, an hour from Mille Lacs, a little over an hour from the Metro Area. What body of water would you hit? What species would you seek? What would you try and catch them with?

I'm primarily a panfish first/walleye second guy, but have fished smallmouth a couple times and had a blast. Any help would be great. Sounds like it is gonna be pretty nice on Sunday grin.gif

gull lake walleyes seem to be biting pretty good from the reports......mille lacs has been off as of late by the reports......so I would go to Gull or the WFC and fish walleyes with panfish as a back-up plan!!!

I have been hearing of good catches on Gull. I would go to the Brainerd forum and check the bite out or make a post there asking questions in regards to the bite.

Thanks for the replies. I think I am heading towards the Brainerd area. Hope all have good luck this weekend.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
