Smallmouth to make you smile!
Living in the Brainerd lakes area, we are fortunate to have the ability to drive to some of the best fishing destinations in the state. At the top of this list is Mille Lacs Lake. Mille Lacs is a short 30 minute drive and for smallmouth bass aficionados like myself, definitely worth the time. The smallmouth fishery on Mille Lacs is considered one of the best in the country for both the sheer number of fish and the giants it holds. Seeing fish that are 20 inches is not uncommon! Mille Lacs smallmouth can be targeted using many different techniques and, due to the size of the lake provides ample fishing spots.
