Grand Lake - Information

8 posts in this topic

Coming up this weekend and looking to get out on Monday for a day of fishing. Does anyone have any pointers for someone who has never fished on Grand Lake?

Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!!!

Get a lake map and study the deeper water. You'll want to get on the break. Normally there'd be lot of perms out there but the lack of ice + snow and slush has kept them off. That'll change soon.

Pike will keep you busy during the day. I'll use small go devils, pimples, rattlin jigs, slender spoons tipped with half a minnow and the bobber rod gets a crappie minnow. Watch the sounder and be ready to come up for the crappies.

ST,

Well we made the trip up from LaCrosse, WI on Sunday and I had a white knuckle drive most of the way. After making it all that way safely the guys I was suppose to go out with said there was no way that we were going to be able to go out unless we wanted to pull everything out by hand through the fresh snow and drifts (no snowmobile). Oh well, maybe the next time I make it up I'll get out.

Thanks again for the information, hopefully I'll get to put it to use sometime in the future.

Merry Christmas!!

tank, good call. You would have had a long slog out there in this deep snow and most likely, more slush.

Haven't been on Grand, but going to go tomorrow. How's the ice? Any vehicles, or is the ice questionable? Let me know.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
