129 anglers participated in the 12th annual Brainerd Lakes Fishing Has No Boundaries event this weekend.
The event was co-sponsored by Camp Confidence and Rod Benders Multi-Species Fishing League and saw the biggest event in their history.
59 boat captains and too many volunteers to count helped make this happen on Friday August 22nd and Saturday August 23rd. Around 300 people took to the water and by all accounts, the fishing was great.
Big panfish, bass and northern pike all were boated including a 19″ largemouth caught by Kyle Reese.
But the biggest fish of the day goes to Jace Keeping, who boated a 32″ northern pike that weighed around 9 lbs.
If you wondered just why this event is put on, all one needed to do is see the abundance of smiles on the crowd.
Fishing stories were shared on stage and the entire group answered with a resounding “yes” when asked about returning next year.
This weekend, Jamie Dietman from What’s Up Outdoors was on MNSJ Radio show to describe the event. Once the podcast is up, you’ll be able to listen to it here.
