Nisswa Guides Fishing Report

1 post in this topic

We are seeing some tremendous summertime fishing! The bass fishing is outstanding on most of our lakes. We've been fishing mushroom head jigs and Gulp plastic worms. Pitching up along the deep weedlines and fishing back fairly slow has been very productive. Casting Rapala DT's is also been producing some nice largemouths. Like I said, any lake you want to try should be good for bass.

The pike fishing has been absolutely awesome over the last 10 days or so. Slow trolling a spinner rig tipped with a sucker minnow has been nailing lots of pike, including some real trophies. The Whitefish Chain has been very good for big pike.

The walleyes have been a little slower. There is still some activity on Whitefish along the weedlines in 15 to 20 feet of water. They are a little inconsistent and it seems like the bait of the day keeps changing from Redtails to nightcrawlers to leeches. I guess just take a little of each and see what happens.

The crappie and sunfish action has been great. Small jigs and plastics, leeches, and worms have all been producing some nice fish.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
