Brainerd Lakes Fishing Report November 6, 2013

Posted on: November 8th, 2013 by Brainerd Lakes Chamber

Gull Lake has been the best choice, most days you will run across one or two mid-twenties inch fish and enough eaters for a meal.  Remember it is important to throw the big ones back!  The hard part about this fall is that the depth has been very inconstant…we have been catching fish 8-40 feet.  Mostly during the morning hours, the walleyes will be shallow, and then they tend to slide deeper as the sun gets higher.  Jigging raps and rainbows on a jig have been my go-to baits this fall.  If you choose a jigging rap (saves your hands from getting wet) remember, to keep it moving.  They are made to trigger fish to bite, so go nuts!

Everyone be safe hunting and fishing this weekend!  Hopefully someone finds “da-thurdy pointer”!  I’m guiding both days this weekend, and then I think it is time to say goodnight to my amazing Ranger…but we will see. 

 Thanks for reading, Capt. Tim Hanske
