I'm coming up to Brainerd this weekend!

7 posts in this topic

So, how much snow is on your lakes? I am wondering whether or not I will need tire chains. If I do, I'll prolly go to your Mills Fleet Farm to get them (if they're still out, and my size is available.)

Where else can I pick up tire chains in Brainerd?

Wondering as well how much snow would be up around the Pine River area. Wondering what machine to bring up.

I would say a good 10 to 14 inches are spread across the area, from Brainerd to Backus.

Bring the sled or get some chains. 10-12 on the ground and another storm on the way Wed./Thur. that should bring more.

Well that sure sucked.

I couldn't get on the lake with the ATV. We had to trudge thru that snow.

Got 5 crappies though.

I was disappointed to find out that none of the resorts were plowing roads.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
