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.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
