Brainerd Lakes Area Fishing Report, April 20, 2014
Brainerd/Nisswa Area – Anglers continued to use ATVs on most lakes this week, but watch the channels and accesses by this weekend. North Long Lake, Hubert Lake, Cullen Lake, Clark Lake, and Nisswa Lake remained safe bets for crappies and sunfish in six to ten feet.
Crosby Area – Ice-fishing options have ended. The shorelines are pulled away and the few people fishing last weekend reported poor main-lake ice as well. The ice left looks black and soft so open water isn’t too far away.
Lake Mille Lacs – Most shorelines and access sports are showing signs of a spring thaw, ending most ice-fishing options. There were some reports of garbage can-sized holes opening is some bays so if you do venture out one last time, watch for those areas.
