flyfshrmn,

first thing is you may want to try the potlack dam in brainerd. The Crow Wing State park is a good access but to get to any "if" any deep wholes that hold any fish is very risky. The water is rising but still very dangerous to navigate for even the seasoned river rat. There is easier fishing below the dam that will easiely give you a better opertunity for more fish and better quality. The locals do fish it and have allot of success right now, but do where your life jacket because the water now will give you hipothermia real quick. Good luck and let us know how you do.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
