Minnesota Fishing Guide Report – 9.7.2016

MN Fishing Guide Service9.7.16MN Fishing Guide Service_9.7.16Captain Josh_9.7.16The late summer early fall action is really going good in the Park Rapids area. Walleyes are schooling heavily on Steep breaks  near deep water anywhere from 20 to 40 feet deep.   A nightcrawler or a minnow has been working well within 2 feet of the bottom. Crappies are also schooling heavily on deeper mud flats in the 20 to 30 foot range suspended anywhere from the bottom up to about 3 feet off. 1/8 ounce jig heads tipped with a small fat head minnow  or a 2inch white Gulp twister tail will do the trick. The mid/day fishing action has been just as good as the morning or evening which is nice. Water temps are cooling a little bit and are hovering around 70° which is normal. Weed beds are still green and holding plenty of fish. Now is the time to think Muskie fishing as well. Good luck. Captain Josh Hagemeister. Minnesota fishing guide service. 218-732-9919
