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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
