Nisswa Guide Service Fishing Report!

Recommended Posts



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:

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
