Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Fishing Report 08.13.18

Capt. Josh lets us know what’s biting and how to reel them in! We have been hammering the Walleyes all week.  Lindy rigs and crawlers at the lake basins 30-40 ft deep. A red #2 hook is a good bet. Crappies remain strong in the shallow weed beds at 6-10 ft using a jig and […]

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 […]

Walleye fishing has been consistent throughout the Park Rapids area. Fish are being caught on weed bed cabbage flats in the 6 to 10 foot depth range trolling spinners and leeches. Walleyes are also being caught on the new deeper Weed lines in the 12 to 17 foot range using jig and leech or Minnow […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
