Fishing Report Lake Minnewaska 4/22/2020
Spring has sprung!!! YEAH.. I hope this all finds you happy and most importantly healthy. This is a whole new 'normal' then most of us are used too,
but we will get thru it together. At the shop, we are doing all we can to stop the spread. Bleach, hand sanitizer, and Clorox wipes are our new friends. One thing is for sure, we
can all practice social distancing while fishing. The ice has been off since April 9th, and fishing is going strong. Crappies are on the chow right now, few good spots to try, is by
Captains bar, where the creek comes in, Hunt's bay, and in front of the creek that comes out past the DNR landing. A variety of presentations are working well right now. Tube jigs tipped with a
crappie minnow and a bobber is super easy way to catch fish right now. Plastics have been working well too, seems like anything with a tail is the key to entice the bite. Water temps around
42-45 degrees look for fish in 6-8 feet - the lake is clear till about 4 feet down. This is a great time to go shore fishing too.. don't forget about that. Bridge by Captains is always good, off the
docks at Lakeside are a good choice, and don't forger the docks at the DNR landing. HOBO park in Starbuck hasn't been producing the fish like it should right now, but one more
day with warmer temps, that will be a great choice as well. Also the creek between Maple Lake and Reno is a good choice as well, especially during the early mornings and evening.
We have crappie and fathead minnows in right now, as well as wax worms and night crawlers. So we are set for all your fishing needs. Our shelves are stocked and we have a great
selection of tackle for you. We have new pizza as well. Check it out when you stop - you are going to love it. Order one to take home after fishing.
