Grand

3 posts in this topic

Going to spend the weekend at Grand Lake with the in-laws. It will be my first trip to the lake and I'm wondering if it's worth my while to bring my fishing boat. I prefer to fish for walleye, but don't mind catching whatever is biting. Strictly a CPR weekend if I bring the boat. (Hoping for the P part)

Any opinions?

Grand is a good lake, try the east sand bar for walleyes in the evening, and the docks for bass throughout the day... Northerns by pickerel point (NW side), and sunfish by the pads on the SW side. Good luck and lets hear how you do if you get out smile.gif

Thanks for the tips. I ended up talking to a local and he steered me to the bar. The lake had a huge algae bloom and was very green. I didn't fish much but did end up catching a very nice largemouth (18") along with a few other smaller ones. No walleye, but the local said they had been tough to find recently.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
