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!

      Well it's all how you look at it grasshopper! 😉

      Well “sadly”. Yes I just said that. Winter is coming to an end and gross summer is near. The hot temps, Humidity, mosquitoes, crazy busy boat landings, drunk boaters. The worst time of the year is near. Life is so blah now. No snowmobiling, no ice fishing, ( I wouldn’t be done for awhile yet but mom won’t let me go anymore😳), I mean really!? I could still drive my truck out What’s more dangerous late ice or being out on first ice on 2”-4”? It’s just water, mud and by far my least favorite time of year. This winter just went by way way to fast! But it is what it is. Can’t believe it, but so long winter 18-19😭🙋‍♂️. In summary probably one of the top ice seasons for me! It’ll make me feel better if I can share some pics with y’all. Enjoy! This is only a VERY few select pics from the winter. Biggest walleye- 21” (caught 3 total all caught while fishing for crappies or gills). Biggest gill- 9-3/4”. Biggest crappie- 13”. Total ice outings 29. (I wanted one more to reach 30). 26 angling outings, 3 dark house spearing outings.

      I am new to catfishing, and live near the stretch of the Mississippi river above the Ford lock and dam to the Marshall Ave. bridge. I have walked along the shore, and found some spots I think would hold some catfish. My only concern is how shallow the river is here. I will be trying these spots within the next two weeks. I am curious if anyone has had success in this section, or will I be wasting my time?

      Didn't go out of resort was on my own off the edge of gull rock reef

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.
    • gimruis
      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.
