Tim Anderson

Tim Anderson has lived in the Brainerd Lakes area and has been fishing religiously for his entire life. His favorite destination lake is Mille Lacs because of the potential for big fish. Most people that fish the lake agree that the next record is swimming around in it just waiting to be caught. In recent tournaments, one in five muskies caught in the lake were over 50 inches.

For booking and further information, please contact the resort.
