Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report 2.1.17

crappie ice sara vexilarCrappie action remains strong throughout the Park Rapids area.  We are finding them in the deep holes now 45-60 ft suspended anywhere from 20-30 ft down.  Keep a close eye on your electronics to quickly learn the best presentation depth.  Glow jigs tipped with a crappie minnow or a wax worm has been working the best.  Because of the deep fish, a good day time bite is not uncommon.  Large pike and walleye can also be a nice bonus in the same areas. Simple use a much larger minnow like a shiner suspended at the same depths, but don’t ignore the bottom –even at depths of 45 or more.  Ice conditions are good for vehicle travel, however do not leave your common sense on shore.  Avoid current areas, any narrows, or any ice heave.  Good luck, Capt Josh Minnesota Fishing Guide Service 218-732-9919 or 320-291-0708
