Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 08.02.18

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 […]

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 […]

It’s that time of year when fishing patterns are all over the board! The Bluegills and Crappies are all basically shallow—7’ of water or less. Small tube jigs, bobber minnow/waxie combos, or even tiny crankbaits will land a bunch of crappies or Bluegills this time of year. The Walleyes are leaning towards any new weed […]

The panfish are in the shallows and so are the Bass.   Nothing but good times catching Bass and panfish on fly rods in the shallows!  Look for the spawning beds in the 1-6 ft range. If you don’t have a fly rod, then pitch 1/16 white jigs tipped with a Crappie Minnow or a […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 05.9.18

It’s going to be a good “opening day” bite on most Minnesota lakes this coming weekend. Although walleye is the number one target for most anglers—The Crappies and Bluegills are going nuts just about everywhere—so it’s a perfect “plan b” if needed. They can be found feeding in and around the shallow spawning areas they […]
