Any word if the walleyes are biting on North Long? I have just started getting itch for muskies...After catching one last year at LOTW and one this year in So. MN, I believe I am hooked. I think it is some kind of illness
What are the best lakes for muskies in the Brainerd area?
Bass and northern pike are hitting minnows and crankbaits at the deep weeds of Gull, North Long, Round, and Whitefish lakes. Pelican and Gull lakes have started producing walleyes in 16-24 feet of water, with redtails and crawlers working best. Panfish anglers are taking fish from the 14- to 16-foot weeded areas of most lakes.
Muskie lakes around brainerd here's a small list for you and the users of MFP
Fish trap Lake
Mil Lacs Lake
maybe a few of the other members here can help you out too
