Park Rapids Area Fishing Report – 6.26.2016

Park Rapids Fishing Report 6/26/16

Big thank you to Jeremy Anderson from Jones’s guide service (218-252-0957) for helping us find the fish this week.

Walleye- Swimming around the weed lines in 18-22ft of water looking for a plain Gamakatsu “Walleye Snell” or a Northland “Pro Walleye” either paired with a large leech, shiner, or redtail.

Northern- Sitting in the thickest structure build-up like timber, lily pads, and cabbage weeds in about 6-12 feet of water, on the hunt for something big and slow for an easy meal. Tie on a Northland “Bionic Bucktail” in either ¾ or 1 ½ oz or a Northland “Reed Runner” spinnerbait for a fun and easy afternoon.

Bass- Out a little deeper than last week due to the immense amount of warm weather. Still looking for structure to lay in such as deep growing pencil reeds, cabbage, and lily pads. Tie on a VMC “Heavy Duty Wide Gap” hook and pair it with a Big Bite “Trick Stick”. Texas Rig or Wacky Worm will both work. Need advice on how to do it? Come see Josh in the fishing department!

Crappie/Sunfish- Looking for the Minnesota “Tick-It” in regular or glow. Swimming through the thicker cabbage, lily pads, and deeper docks in about 10-16 feet of water. Fisherman are also having really good luck on the glow ants tipped with either a crappie minnow, waxworm, or small leech for best luck at filling the bucket!
