Brainerd Lakes Fishing Report June 6, 2013

Posted on: June 6th, 2013 by Brainerd Lakes Chamber


Walleye fishing has been improving in the Brainerd Lakes Area! Despite most days being rainy (how much longer do I have to write that?!?!) fishing has been pretty decent. Walleyes are moving on to the weed edges and feeding. Here is this week’s rundown!

Round and North Long have been producing walleyes during the morning and evening. The best depths have been 8-15 feet of water. I have been starting to use a live bait rig more often, but usually a jig and shiner is all you need. I like the versatility of the jig, because you can vertical fish or cast it up shallow.

Crappies and sunfish still are pretty shallow. The action has been good once the water warms up, so I have had better luck in the afternoons. Most days I just use a casting bubble and a small jig with a white puddle jumper. If the fish are a little finicky, usually a minnow will put more fish in the boat. 

Have a great week, and thanks for reading!
