Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report 9.16.19

crappie guys group fall

Fall Crappie fishing has kicked in throughout the Park Rapids area

Concentrate on the deeper muddy bottoms in the 19-25 ft range. Use an 1/8 oz jig tipped with a crappie minnow and keep a close eye on your electronics so you know how high off the bottom to keep the jig. Northern Pike can also be found
chasing these crappies, Use a big sucker minnow on a live bait rig not far from the schooled crappies.
Look for the walleyes to be schooling near deep water on steep drop-offs with shallow weeds near by.
Just about any presentation will produce fish, but my favorite is a jigging Rapala. Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!
