Fishing Report

Park Rapids Summer fishing action is in full swing! Largemouth bass are slaying the wacky worms in 5-
10 ft. of water in just about any weed bed. Northern Pike are hunkered down a bit but can easily be
caught trolling the deep weed lines with deep diving crankbaits that run about 12-15 ft. deep. Crappies
and bluegills are both hanging out in thick weed beds in between shore and the first break. Casting
small white grubs on a 1/16 oz. jig worked through the tops of the weeds will put fish in the boat.
Walleyes are all over the board which makes them easy to catch. Some fish are on deep mid lake
structure, some walleyes are along any weed line all day long, while others are cruising mid-range flats
in search for food. Spinners, live bait rigs, or jigs all tipped with live bait will work!

Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!
