Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Fishing this week has still been holding up. Bowstring has slowed alittle but the fish are still being caught on the deep bars with a lindy rig and leeches and crawlers and in the weeds with a jig and minnow. Winnie has been good on the humps in 22-25ft of water with leeches being the best for me. I have also caught some fish cranking shad raps on the edges of the weeds. The sunnies have been biting around some of the area lakes and the northerns have been decent on Pokegama.

Good luck fishing

Jason: What's the key to catching those walleyes out on the humps on Winnie. Besides leeches are you finding the hook or bead color important or the length of the snell. Will be up this Wed-Sat. As always, thanks for the help.

snell length probably the most 7-8 seems to be a good starter and staying on the edge where the fish are is the most important

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
