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 […]

May Brings Fishing Opener and So Much More

Spring is chasing signs of winter away from the lakes and woods. The loons are back, trees are budding and rivers are open. On a short drive, it’s common to see a trifecta of bald eagles, wild turkeys and white-tailed deer. Spring rituals like ditch clean up can finally begin. Residents and resort owners are […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 04.11.18

Wow, if you can get through the snow to the fish, you will catch them. The fish are where they should be. Some are in ultra-shallow water 3-5ft where you can sight fish them down the hole, others are hanging on break lines waiting to head to the shallows to feed. Mid-day fishing has been […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 04.05.18

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. […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 03.28.18

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 […]
