Early June

In the Brainerd Lakes Area, The bite has really improved lately and early summer fishing patterns are in full swing. Walleyes are biting leeches, red tail chubs , and crawlers in 8-18 feet of water. Bass are hitting plastics and jig/minnow presentations in 4-12 feet along most weedlines on Brainerd area lakes. Pike are also getting more active as the water temperatures rise. Spinner baits and live bait rigs are turning pike in 12-20 feet of water. Panfish are slowly leaving their spawning areas and setting up on the nearest deeper weeds and can be caught on small jigs with crappie minnows or wax worms. Things should continue to get better and better! Now is a good time to give S and W bait a call and book a guide to get in on this good bite!
