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.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
