O K , I ’ L L A D M I T I T . I have lived in the Brainerd area for 12 years but before that I was one of those Iowans that came up to the Brainerd lakes to ﬁsh and vacation each year. In fact, from 1980 until 2001, I took about 25 trips to this area, first with fishing buddies and later with my family as they grew. We came here for one primary purpose — fishing. Most of those trips were centered around Memorial Day weekend because of the amazing bass fishing opportunities we found here.
Springtime largemouth bass ﬁshing in the Brainerd Lakes area can provide some of the fastest action of the year.
