McQuoid’s Inn Welcomes Jay Brainard to the team! August Smallmouth Fishing on Fire!

We’re sailing into August with an awesome Smallmouth bite here on Mille Lacs. Anglers are still finding fish both on the shallow reefs and boulders and the deeper rock structure. Dark and natural plastics have been working best, drop-shotting has been the technique of choice but, lots of anglers are reporting a good top-water bite on and off as well. The Muskie and Pike fishing has also been on fire here. Spinnerbaits and bucktails on weedlines and edges have been producing some really nice fish.

McQuoid’s Inn is also happy to Welcome Jay Brainard and His wife Dalli and son David to our team. Jay will be guiding in house for us and has loads of experience in the bass fishing industry. Jay guided on Grand Lake in Oklahoma for three years, he started fishing the Bassmaster Central Opens 2015 and took angler of the year his rookie year. He also fished the Bassmaster Elite Series in both 2016 and 2017. He plans on fishing the FLW Pro-Circuit for 2018. His schedule is already filling up here on Mille Lacs in the short time he’s been with us!

We still have a few openings for September’s Angler of the Year Tournament. Give us a call to book your stay.
