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 […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Spring Fishing Tips

This week we’re switching it up with spring fishing tips from Capt. Josh from Minnesota Fishing Guide Service. Go big or go home! Bigger hooks for more Spring panfish. I love big hooks—bigger than what you would think.  Hooks do not scare the fish, they attract fish—especially the colored hooks available today. These larger hooks […]

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 […]

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 […]

More snow is good for fishing too, this week’s Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report tells us why… New snow has put the blinders on the fish making it nice and dark under the ice.  The mid-day Pike bite has been good.  All sizes are starting to feed aggressively due to spawning time in a few […]

Mid-winter fishing is in full swing.  In a few weeks, things will begin to change rapidly but for now, think deeper water for more consistent Walleye and Crappie fishing.  The deep basins are full of Crappies creating good daytime bites in the 25-40ft depth range using small minnows or tiny jigging spoons tipped with a […]

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 02.07.18

Crappies are being caught suspended over deep water.  Look for them in deep holes of 35 feet or more suspended 10-15 feet off of the bottom. Small jigging spoons tipped  with a minnow head will do the trick.  Glow in the dark or gold has been productive. Northern Pike action continues to be strong around […]
