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!

13lb, 9oz Walleye!

There will be alot of action in Park Rapids over the 4th weekend!  The fish are biting, move alittle deeper for walleyes.  Leeches are the bait of choice now.  This year has been great on the bluegill, crappie and bass, nice size fish.  Check out BelleTaine, Fish Hook, Island and Long.  Sunday July 6th the Osage Sportsman's club will be holding it's annual "Kids Day at the Range",  check it out, very fun day with range shooting and archery.  This event is free, good family fun

Summer is on track!

We are seeing larger than normal fish this spring.  Crappies are doing very well as are the bass and northerns.  Check out the shallows for the best chances.  Weather has been good most weekends which has helped our visitors enjoy their time on the lake.  Kids, register your panfish in our annual summer long fishing contest, no cost just fun prizes!

We have open water!

Surprisingly, the fish are hitting in the cooler water!  Long Lake fill has been going strong for a couple weeks with some nice crappies in the bag!

The Jelly shop on Fish Hook is also producing some nice fish.  This should be a great opener after fighting last years ice.  Come fish!
