Nisswa Guide Service Report-Early July

1 post in this topic

Busy, Busy, Busy here in the Nisswa area. It has been hectic everywhere you go whether it is on the water or at the bait shop. It hasn’t slowed the fishing a bit though. The bass and pike fishing is awesome lately. Pretty much any lake that we’ve been fishing has produced some great action. The big ones are on the prowl as well. This morning we lost a huge pig of a bass as it made one last run for daylight, than it was gone. That is how the big ones get big I guess. Rapalas or plastic worms are working the best along the weedlines. If I had to pick a depth I would say 14-16 feet has been best. For walleyes we have spent most of our time up on the Whitefish chain. The other lakes in the area have just been pretty slow. Lindy rigs and redtail chubs or leeches have been working best in 14-24 feet. Slow and steady while working over the walleyes on Whitefish. Sometimes it has taken a couple of passes to get them going. The panfish are going strong in 8-10 feet of water and the crappies are starting to show up again in the early mornings or the evenings. Well that’s the latest here for early July. Keep checking back for the latest.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
