Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Fishing Report 10.18.18


Brave the chill to catch your fill!

Cold temps are bringing the big fish shallow—especially the pike and muskies.

Troll sucker decoys rigged on a quick strike rig just off the break line about 7-10 down and hang on. Look for walleyes all over the board—weed lines, deep main lake holes (40-70ft) they will be on the bottom in either way.  Slowly troll a live bait rig tipped with a rainbow chub (awesome minnows).

Crappies can be found on muddy lake basin flats in the 20-30 ft range. Tip an 1/8oz. jig with a crappie minnow and drag and lift slowly allowing the fish to “slurp” it in.

Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun! Minnesota Fishing Guide Service, Captain Josh Hagemeister.
