      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 8-10-04

After one of the toughest weeks we have had for fishing Walleye things are going to mellow out abit around here. We have been struggling alittle with the big cold front last week; it seemed like the walleyes just shut right down. With the southerly winds and warmer temps it should get up to speed soon. We found some walleye in the weeds on winnie yesterday and look for the bite to get better. The perch were also scattered in there with a few Northerns. Try any side of the lake with the wind blowing into or adjacent to and it has been working pretty well. Use as lite a jig as you can get by with in those weeds and rip it right through.
Bowstring has been alittle slow too, but its saving grace has been the crappies out in the main basin. Look around on the edges of the humps and look for the schools on your depth finder and drop a jig on them and you are in buisness. Sand has also started to pick up on the crappies with the same presentation working there.
Good luck fishing

Really appreciate the reports you've been putting out each week.
The whole family (about 25 of us) are going to be on Bowstring this coming Sat-Tues and I was wondering if you could give me a shoreline reference point to help locate those humps on the north end, how far out from shore, etc.. I usually spend time down on the rocks, SE corner, but would like to try some other spots, especially with all the kids. It would be nice to get on some of those crappies you're talking about.
Thanks for any tips,

the humps are out from the landing 150-200 yards and to the right all the way to close to the shoreline some have jugs on the you just have look for them there will be people on them sometimes
the craps are out on the main lake on the humps and the main drop that goes to the deep water anywhere yoou find that you will find the craps

      I have been using my X67c on the ice this year and encountered a small problem. Occasionally, it will have a hard time differentiating between bottom and the surface ice echos. I have tried everything I can think of and can't seem to filter it. If I switch to manual depth range I can see where bottom is but the sonar displays that it is only about 3' deep. Not a serious problem but annoying. Tried varying sensitivity, adjusting interference filter, adjusting surface clutter filter with no success. Any ideas?
    • BobT
      That was an aggressive trip. Did you actually find time for fishing?

      I haven't fished up there for a couple of years but the first time i fished it was about fifteen years ago and we were on moccasin. We did pretty well caught lots of sunfish but size was nothing special. Crappies were decent with a couple large ones. Since then i have gone back maybe three times and caught more large mouth bass than anything.

      Makes sense. I live in northern Minnesota so most of our lakes don't seem to require much stocking other than old mine pits. I'm not familiar with the southern half.

      I picked up new rain gear last year.  I took a layering approach and went with Gill. I love the stuff and can more comfortably wear it in warmer climates.   jacket - bibs - bib& insul bib -
