Most area lakes have good ice, use caution if you venture to new territory. We will be hosting the Park Rapids Darkhouse Community Fish House this year, you must reserve it in person, but it is a fun way to get the family out on the ice. It will be placed on the lake when the group is comfortable with the lakes condition.
Reports of 0 to 8" of ice, so proceed with caution.
The fish are biting, try a silver spoon/jig tipped with a minnow. Waxies and spikes are hot on the Millpond in Osage.
Houses on Straight, Fish Hook and Crow Wings.
Get your license now! Why stand in line? Deer hunting Nov 7th, we will have extended hours for those of you coming from the metro area!
Check out the Walleyes in 15-20 ft. Use a jig and minnow or Lindy Rig and leech!
Grouse hunting our doing well too, do something fun, take a kid hunting!
Check out Fish Hook and Portage for panfish, 14' on the weedline. Long, Blue, Fish Hook for walleyes.
Of course Northern and Bass are active on Long, Crow Wings and many more.
Cooler weather on its way so watch for the walleyes to start biting better.
If you are 60 and over you can now hunt with a crossbow in Minnesota during Archery season, check the DNR webpage for more info!
