Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Another week of hot weather and hot fishing. Winnie has been a good bite, with the fish being deep on the calmer days and fish in the shallows on the days with more wind. I have been on the humps in 21-25 ft of water with a 3/8-1/2 oz jig and a shiner. It seems like every hump on the north end had some fish. The south end bars also had fish on them as well as the first drop around moxes hole. The shiners are getting at the end of their run and getting hard to find, so I see us changing to leeches and crawlers soon. Bowstring, Sand and Jessie have been producing some good fishing with both minnows and leeches being the ticket there. The panfish action has been scattered but I have heard the bluegills are biting on cutfoot and area lakes in the new weeds.

Good luck fishing

I was up Thursday through Sunday...

North end rocks were very good to me... We boated 9...

50/50 mix shiners to leeches... 1 was caught trolling a perch rap on a 3 way rig.

I also hooked into a Musky while trolling my Walleye Gear on the North end of Zumers, but lost it near the boat.

I've had some tough luck the previous two years weather wise on Winnie... Big winds always made it tough to fish the big lake for long stretches, so this year with the kind weather I took the chance to move around, and sort of take the whole tour...

There are a lot of guys anchoring up in the calm weather on Gravel bars both in Cut Foot Sioux and out on the lake, and then talking to them they weren't catching much...

Talking to the guys who at prime time were trolling shallow structures near weed edges, and either the bulk of them were lieing or that's where the hot prime time bite was.

****

All told I had a great time up there... Folks at the National campgrounds were really nice... Got checked by a sheriff, when I was clearly the only sobre guy in the boat... And the Sheriff was incredibly respectful to me despite my friend's state...

Many boats have been out on the lake and fishing in deeper waters, the shoreline bite is tapering. A popular spot to hit which is producing nice walleyes is "The Fence" using crawlers. Lake level is good, with the rainfall that we have been receiving. No problem to launch in the area.

How is the water clarity up there? I noticed last year in places that you couldnt see bottom in 2-3' of water.

While I didn't really think of it in terms of Feet... I can tell that it was better than it was the last two years I went up there.

The Fence is located on the north side of Bena Bar. Which is located to the southwest of us about 3 1/2 miles.

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
