Brainerd area

Recommended Posts

jwmiller33

hello all. I am going to be making a trip with a couple people to Brainerd this coming weekend in search of walleye and crappies and other pan fish. We have a wheel house, all the gear we need (auger, THE LODGE ice house, snowmobiles, rods, tip ups, the whole nine yards). The only thing is, we need to find out where the fish are. Is anybody willing to give me some helpful tips of what lakes we should try, or possibily some areas of certain lakes? We have a Lowrance H20c GPS with the Minnesota Lake card, so if somebody could help us out, it would be very much appreciated.

Also, we are willing to hire a guide to put us on some fish. Like I said, we have all the equipment we need, so we don't need to rent any gear or anything, we are just looking for someone to put us on the fish. We are willing to pay some good money for someone to put us on the fish, so does anybody know any guides in the Brainerd area that would be able to do this? If you are just looking to get the money and don't really know where the fish are, please don't bother wasting our time! Can somebody help me out with a possible list of a couple good guides in Brainerd? Thanks a bunch!

There are a lot of fishing guides in the Brainerd area but only a few of them guide during the winter season. Here are a few reputable guides that have been out there on a regular basis:

Todd Andrist- 218-821-8812

Dan Eigen- 218-839-5598

Richie Boggs- 218-963-4410

Ryan Traxler(Traxx)

These guys are the best in area in the winter. They are out there all the time. Great guides for any species, plus Todd or Traxx have some of the most productive fish house rentals in the area as well.

Go north? Skiesandeyes (Tim), some friends and I went across Minnesota and back on Saturday to fish some new waters. We did have a good trip catching lots of crapdawgs and a few pike. The funny thing was I went out close to home for a quick outing and had a blast. Fished a new spot with nobody for miles and caught a 28 inch walleye, 14.5 crappie, some walleyes and crappies to eat, and two bullheads. It was an awesome trip and when I returned home my wife asked, "Why do you drive all over when you can go out the back door and catch fish like that?" I just smiled and said go north the fishing is better???

"If your not fishing a Bigtooth, your just another suker!" Bigtooth wacked them right out his back door, in the BLA. Fishing is good, just find them!

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.

      Up on mille lacs isle bay. 13.5 inches of ice and half ton trucks out here. Fishing is slow. 1 Walleye last night at 845. Moving the house deeper today.

      Got to work the weekend ... good luck guys!!  Will be checking in to see what these fish look like 😉

      I am going to check some local lakes today

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
