Minnesota Fishing Report
Patterns have been difficult to predict, and fishing has slowed somewhat during this mid-January timeframe. Currently, panfish are producing the most action and can usually be found around the vegetation in many area lakes. Because panfish are a common food source for both northern pike and bass, if there is a school of panfish, most likely northern pike and bass can be found nearby. Northern pike are currently the most active predator fish, while walleye fishing has been slow. Historically, walleye fishing can be difficult during this time of the year. For those anglers reporting successful outings, walleyes are being pulled from 17-35 feet of water on fat heads and jigs. Glow hooks have also produced fish for night anglers, however, the best color of the glow hook will depend on the lake you’re fishing. Vehicle travel on the lakes is fair; please use caution when driving any vehicle on the lakes. Minnesota Fishing Report by: Ross Hagemeister Meister Guide Service
