It’s a great time for crappies! We have been hammering the crappies throughout the Park Rapids area with a ton of really nice fish being released for others to enjoy, keeping the healthy fish population this area is known for! Shallow weed beds in the 6 -13 ft depth for a good daytime bite and […]

The ice is firming up nicely in the Park Rapids area but beware of thin spots due to current, geese, ducks, or wind! We have been sticking to the smaller lakes and cashing in on panfish—mainly Bluegills and Crappies. There have also been some nice bonus Walleyes mixed in with the “pannies” as well. Tip- […]

Fishing remains solid in the Park Rapids area—especially the Fall Crappies! Look for them schooled heavily near or over deep water down to 30’.  Other Crappies have been found cruising muddy flats in the 20-30 ft range. Jigging Raps or a jig/minnow crappie minnow will do the trick. The Walleyes are gathered in isolated deep […]

Smallmouth Bass are schooling heavy and are on the feed bag anywhere from 6 ft of water down to 20 ft. The warm weather is keeping many of the fish shallower then normal. Standard crawfish baits like a jig/craw combo or a live bait rig with a small sucker minnow will catch fish worked along […]

Pike are eating chartreuse spinner baits slowly rolled through deep weed beds in the 15 ft range. Bluegills are schooled heavily on the deep weed lines and are being caught […]

Fishing has been super in the Park Rapids area. Many good catches of Walleye and Crappie have been had by my clients all day long.  Crappies are just off the weed lines in 12-15 ft of water and can be caught slowly trolling small white jigs tipped with a minnow.  The Walleyes are being caught […]

Where are fish hiding?  Capt. Josh knows! Big bluegill and bass are hitting plastics worked along the inside weed edges in the 5-10 ft range. 1/16 oz tube jigs for the panfish and 1/4 oz swim baits for the bass. Walleyes can be caught in the lake basins in the 20-40 ft range using bottom […]

Wow, the fishing is hot! I’m talking everything, and it’s been that way for weeks. Walleyes and crappies in the shallow weeds—(6-10ft), Bass on the new weed lines 12-17ft, Trout setting up on thermoclines- 15-25 ft, big ‘Gills coming off the beds 5-8 ft, Pike cruising shallow of shore sunken “grassy” islands 7-10ft.  Its wide […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 06.21.18

The fishing in the Park Rapids area has been hot just like the weather! Bluegills are still on their spawning beds and the Crappies are out in the newly formed weed flats not far from where they were spawning a few weeks ago. Fan casting a small Jig tipped with a minnow or a plastic […]
