Fishing Opener

Fishing Opener is just 12 days from now and conditions are setting up for a great one! Water temperatures in the Brainerd Lakes Area are slowly rising and should get the shiners running and the walleyes snapping! Crappie fishing is also starting to turn on and should stay good for the next few weeks. The Nisswa Guides League, the longest running Fishing Guide League in Minnesota, is heading into its 54th season of taking anglers from around the U.S. Give us a call if you are interested in learning more about fishing with a guide.
