Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 8.23.17

IMG_3039Capt Josh_pike17 FullSizeRenderFishing around the Park Rapids area has been very good in the last couple of weeks and will only get better as fall approaches.  Walleyes are starting to school up in deeper water and feeding Strong.  Crappie’s are also starting to move into deeper water and are hitting jigs and minnows. Trolling a large spinner bait or cabbage weed beds in the nine or 10 foot range is producing a lot of nice pike. Look for schools of largemouth bass on the deep we lines and catch them using a black plastic worm. If you are searching for smallmouth bass concentrate on rock piles in the 10 to 20 foot range using artificial crawfish baits.  Good luck out there lots of fish lots of fun Captain Josh Minnesota Fishing Guide Service 218-732-9919 or
