Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report – 02.22.18

Fishing tips for this weekMore snow is good for fishing too, this week’s Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report tells us why…

New snow has put the blinders on the fish making it nice and dark under the ice.  The mid-day Pike bite has been good.  All sizes are starting to feed aggressively due to spawning time in a few weeks.  A lot of nice female Pike are jumping on big sucker minnows on tip ups set just below the ice in 6-12 ft of water.

The Crappie bite remains strong in the “deep holes” throughout the area using small glow hooks and Crappie Minnows. Some late night action blended with the normal daytime bite has kept the Crappies coming up the hole.  

Walleye action has also been solid.  Fishing mud bottoms in the 25-35 foot range with rattling jigging spoons tipped with a Minnow head will do the trick.  

Lotsa Fish!  Lotsa Fun!  Minnesota Fishing Guide Service, Capt Josh Hagemeister
