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 […]
