Brainerd lakes area fishing report


GULL CHAIN: The South end of Gull is producing walleyes and great multi-species action. Spots to start include Clump’s Point or Floan’s Point. Weed edges along these areas have been good from 14-17 feet. The early morning bite or evening bite, as is typical for Gull, is the best time. Lindy rigging with redtails or creeks chubs have taken the most fish, but leeches are also starting to produce. Casting crankbaits along the weed edge also can produce fish.
