Spring Fishing In Minnesota

In Minnesota, you’ll get to experience the North like nowhere else in the country. The natural beauty of the outdoors, and the promise of 10,000 lakes make this a fishing haven. But what’s the best fish to go after in the Spring? We’d suggest going after Walleyes.

Walleyes are the state fish of Minnesota and have a season that opens in early to mid-May most years. There are a few ways you can target these fish depending on what you prefer.

Jigging for Walleyes is a great method. Find some structure and drop down your favorite jig until you get a bite. Another great method is trolling. Trolling a stickbait allows you to cover lots of area and is a proven method to get big Walleyes.

Which lake in Minnesota should you go for Spring Walleyes? One great option is Mille Lacs lake. This is one of the most well-known lakes in the state and has some great Walleye fishing within it. This lake is over 500 square kilometers in size, so there is plenty of space to have some of the lake all to yourself.

Where to stay?

Spring Fishing in Texas

When you hear fishing in Texas, chances are the first thing you think of is catching bass. Texas is a huge state, with huge potential to land your new personal best Largemouth. But how should you try to catch these awesome fish?

Well, there are a few different strategies. If you’re looking for the experience of having a fish erupt from below and blow up your lure, you’ll want to fish a topwater bait. Lures like frogs and poppers are great for this.

If you want something that goes underwater, try a diving crankbait or a jig. Regardless of topwater or diving lures, mix up your retrieve speed and twitches to help trigger a fish to bite.

Of all the bass lakes in Texas, where should you go? A great pick is Lake Fork near Dallas. This lake is well known for its bass fishing and has the potential to get you a massive bass each cast.

Spring Fishing in Colorado

Nothing sounds as peaceful to an angler as spending time out on the river trying to catch a trout. The peace and serenity these river fish bring is incredible. What better place to go after them in the Spring than Colorado?

Whether it’s Rainbow Trout or Cutthroat Trout, there are a couple of ways to try catching them. The most common in this area is to Fly Fish them. Get your favorite fly rod and some flies that match the hatch when you’re there and you’ll likely catch some fish. You can also try putting bait on a bobber and drifting your hook in slow-moving water to try to catch these fish.

A great river (especially for Rainbow Trout) to try in the Spring is the South Platte River.
