Brainerd Area Musky Report

Recommended Posts

Musky fishing has been pretty darn good the past couple of weeks. They have been biting during the day, and at night on many of the area lakes. We've enjoyed some success on Mille Lacs, Sham, and although I haven't been to Alex myself, I know people that have been enjoying success over there as well. We've been catching them primarily on blade baits....smaller during the day and bigger at night. Virtually all of the fish have come from flats or breaklines associated with weeds. The highlights this week were a five fish night where Brent Peterson caught his first two legal fish of his life. Brent got back to back 46 and 43 inchers. The other was a superfish caught up on lake Bemidji, which measured 55 X 23, and probably weighed somwhere in the neighborhood of 40-45 pounds. This monster came from a wind blown flat at precisely sunset. Brad Engel from the Chicago area was the lucky guy, and I was honored to be in on this fish of a lifetime. I told Brad his fish would look much bigger if he wasn't so dang tall (he's 6'6")...but it still looks pretty darn good to me! Congrats to you guys.

Our fish from Mille Lacs and Bemidji have been pretty girthy and it's only going to get better. Fall fattie time is just around the corner.....good luck to all.

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.

      I drove by the spot I thought it was on the snowmobile and couldn't find it.
