Tom,

I'd be interested to hear how the landing was also. I have tomorrow off and since i looks like its gonna be nice, I was planning on taking my 4 year old over and shore-fish Chub, but if i could get my boat in I'd rather do that so I could look for some nice gills or crappie. I've got a 17' lund and roller trailer. The lake has been so low the last 2 years that i quit even trying to put in there with my boat. Thanks for any update smile.gif

PS: Say HI to Deb and Austin from Chris, Caroline and Dylan (she'll know who this is grin.gif) and have her tell her sister & brother-in-law to stop by sometime!

Thanks for the info Tom, still looks like they are predicting a nice day tomorrow so I think we'll head over there in the morning. Not sure I can get Dylan to cast spinnerbaits with the "Tweety" pole but maybe I can cast a few docks while he throws a bobber/worm grin.gif

The best was right in front of the landing to the right as you leave the dock and the the shore line the was no fish at the dock's worm's worked in the deeper water next to the weed's we did great to day a lot of big bass I think we did about 35 today what a great day. Hope you can get out smirk.gif good fishing.

Some nice bass. The reason is because the lake was not fished hard except for those that knew the lake. Hope yor post does not change that. Thats a small lake for any kind of pressure. Hope everbody does C/R.>>>later the load

Load that lake has been hit hard for years and years. Heck I fished it at 3 years old and there was more pressure back then than I have seen in the recent years. The reason the bass (Yuck) are in there is due to the stocking years back and they are finally of decent size. Nobody in there right mind eats those bucketmouths anyways. tongue.gif

In my opinion those bucketmouths could be weeded out a bit and let the Crappie, gill and eye numbers develope a bit.

This is Mn. after all. blush.gif

Bass are a nice option for when the walleyes are slow. It seems like Bass are always biting.

      Good walleye bite on leadcore..40 walleyes in 25-28 ft of water,mid lake..None over 16 inches...

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.

      Very nice walleye no matter how the picture came out! Do not see many of those each year!

      We ended up keeping 9 walleyes and releasing 3 slot fish between 19" and 23".

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.
