grand lake

11 posts in this topic

grand was the first lake i hit last year at first ice and i got skunked. I fished it 4 times this summer/fall and only got 2 walleyes. Is this lake on a down swing? Anybody notice the same? Going somewhere on tuesday gl all.

I fished it probably 4 times last winter had very little luck, just small panfish. But it is suppose to be a great walleye lake and pike lake if you know where to go. Myself i havent found where to go but i probably wont give up right away, ill be back a few times. My advice just try different spots around the lake.

last mo. i spent 6-8 hours jigging and troling. I caught 2 northerns one about 3lbs and about a 5 pounder. Caught them both in 30-32 feet trolling deep diving raps looking for walleyes down by the underwater point. I hope thats helps.

I did pretty well the times I went to Grand last winter. I usually wait til I can drive on it though. Weedlines are usually good for pike and I like the bar for walleyes.

I know what side the weedlines are on, but where is the bar is it the north side i think? I might have my directions messed up.

I like the one on the East/Southeast side. Look at a lake map and you can't miss it. I just drill a bunch of holes and drop the camera to see how it looks. Hole hop around with a jigging spoon, and put a tip-up with a shiner either deep, on the break, or shallow depending on the time or light conditions.

There are some nice sunfish to be had on this lake. Also a few nice largemouth.

Grand can really be a tough lake to figure out! I've done very well at times and struggled the next. It does have a good population of walleyes, decent pike, nice crappies and lots of sunfish. If you're not finding what you're looking for keep moving. They are in there. Sometimes very deep and other times quite shallow.

Good Luck!

Would be nice if it were on the Lakemaster chip. I just hope I saved some of the spots I worked pretty hard to find last winter.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
