Nisswa Guide Service Fishing Report!

1 post in this topic


What an amazing weekend here in the northwoods. I wouldn't go so far as to call it the bite of the century but it has been very good. Over the past few days we have been spending time on the big water of Mille Lacs Lake. It has been phenomenal. There must have been over 1000 boats out there today. The walleyes are active all over the lake in all depths. We have been catching most of our fish on either a Roach Rig tipped with a leech or a spinner tipped with a nightcrawler. Today Northland Tackle's holographic spinner blades outshined everything else we through at them. One guide boat reported catching 50 fish during the four hour trip. I highly recommend giving us a call soon if you would like to get in on this non stop fun. Our guides still have a couple of openings this week. We have been catching dozens of big fish up to 29 inches and plenty of smaller fish perfect for a fish fry. The fishing has been hit or miss here on the smaller lakes. We've had a few decent reports from Gull, North Long, and Whitefish. Redtail chubs or a leech are providing steady action along the weedlines. The bass fishing is really starting to heat up in the Brainerd area. Some of the best bassin lakes have been Hubert, Gull, North Long, and Cullen. Our go to lure has been any of the Slurpies tubes or Dip-stick worms fished weightless. Bass are cruising the shallow flats in 3-8 feet of water. Panfish have been pretty active out in 6-10 feet of water. Worms or leeches will keep you busy. I added a few pics from the weekend. I have a bunch more to add, so check it out throughout the week. Here they are:

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
