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:

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
