Where Beauty & Nature Intersect

Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Fishing Report 1.2.19

fishSnow and good fishing can be found throughout the Park Rapids area.

The Walleyes are in the spotlight this week.  The best fishing has been before noon or between 2 pm and dark—especially on the lakes with a little tinge to the water.  The best depths have been 11-25ft.  On the clearest lakes in the area there is also a god daytime bite in the 25-40 ft range.

Jigging spoons like the JB weasel tipped with a small minnow head will produce fish. Glow/gold color combinations have been working great along with the jigging spoons, a simple bobber/hook/shiner minnow combo will catch the less aggressive fish. I prefer a green #4 hook.

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