Where Beauty & Nature intersect

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 06.08.18

Look for the biggest spawning Bluegills and Crappies in the 4-7 ft range—just out of site, use your sonar to  “mark” the fish. Catch them using jig/minnow/ bobber combo.  The Walleyes are chomping hard on any new weed line/sand bottom combo.   A jig and Minnow will catch the fish all day long.  Pike are […]

Smallmouth Bass are in shallow getting ready to spawn as well as the Largemouth—so the shallow bite is on! They will hit about anything! Please release the Bass!! Other fish are better table fair—like Crappies which about done spawning—however on some lakes the can still be found in the shallows—you have to check on each […]

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 […]

Fishing is the classic awesome right now! Late ice is obviously going to linger a while yet, and frankly the best panfish bite is yet to come. I’ve been wacking the fish on the NorthLand Tackle Bro Bug and the JB Weevil Lure tipped with a wax worm in anywhere from 4-10 feet of water. […]

Go get those crappies! Snow is melting and that means the masses of Crappies and Bluegills will be getting closer to shallower water. For now I have been finding fish in a variety of depths, but for the most part in the 12-20 ft. range where they have been most of the winter. There is […]

Captain Josh knows where to find the fish this week. The Spring late ice bite has started. Sunfish and crappies are eating like crazy right now trying to nourish developing eggs. Look for them suspended on steeper drop offs just outside the shallow spawning bays they will be eating in when the ice is gone. […]

Fishing is great and will only get better until the ice melts… Just as most ice anglers quit for the year, the action doubles if not triples as the ice starts to free itself of snow.  We concentrate on panfish—Perch, Crappies, and monster Bluegills for the rest of the winter. Look for “night bite” Bluegills […]

What works this week, directly from Minnesota Fishing Guide Service. Holy snow batman!  Travel is getting a little more difficult now with the deeper snow on the ice, but the fishing is hanging in there!  The fish on the shallower lakes are showing some signs of low oxygen levels so concentrate your efforts on the […]
