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.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
