Ice Fishing in full force

Posted by: Debbie Lempola Updated: December 17, 2014 - 8:15 AM

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.

Winter Fishing

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.

August fishing

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!
