I am hoping to hit the Big Pond in the next few days...I usually go out of Grandview to the first break....last two trips several weeks ago produced a lot of action...smaller eyes with a few keepers and one 22.5" (both obviously back in the hole) on each occasion.....What's the bite like? How is traffic and snow depth? Any information would be greatly appreciated....by the way, the boys at GENE'S BAITSHOP have been full of decent tips this winter!

I have not fished it in a couple of weeks, but before that it was good. This weekend should be better than normal with the full moon. The guys at the bait shop are very helpful and generious with there bait. You get your money worth of bait. I will be out this weekend by the north end by the cotton woods.

Otterman,
how deep have you been fishing? we've hammered 'em in about 16' with glow and rattle vertical jigs and some of the URL glow red airplanes with the smaller shiners from Gene's.....they'll even eyeball the smaller ones for you.....they seemed to work better than the full grown......they also stay alive longer.....any advice on keeping those shiners from floating??

Tom and his two sons have great thing going for them. They sure have made it a long time there compared to the little one on the way out, that shop has changed owners five or six times in as many years it seems. Plus when you get a dozen minnow you get a scoop, they don't count you out 12 and ship you out. Can't say enough about them. Last I heard Wadena Bay was doing good, farmer friends have there houses out of there. If your familiar where the Clam Bed was, thats where are house was out on, 8x20 blue stripe ultra shack, did great out there till we moved it to Crappie Mecca. Caught a 27.5 out there. Usually on #6 glow gamakatzu. Friends have also been seeing the walleyes when spearing behind squaw point. Always have wanted to try and fish where the do the gill nets out there, this winter every net it seemed would pull one out that was over six, one went all of 8 and a 13 pound northern.
Hope it helps

If you guyd have not got bait at Northside this winter you are missing out. Twice as much for the price compared to Genes. They also make it to the lake alive.

Viper-
Didn't mean to knock on northside, just when you see ownership change as much as they have, it makes you wonder what goes on. Didn't mean to offend anyone, sorry if I did.

Grand View hights update --

My bro-in-law finally finished his new fish 8x12 fish house and we hit big pine. We knew we were a little late, but thought we would give it a go.

He has his souse a little too deep for walleyes (25-27-32) and a little too shallow for crapies.

We caught 2 very small 'eyes (11") and a couple of very small nibbles.

A little shallower would have been better.

I heard a husband and wife limited out and had to throw back 6 'eyes last weekend on Little Pine. Kinda late in the year for that, but good for them.

Gene's sport shop --

I agree, they are great to work with. The shorter son without the 70s fro is the best, in my opinion. I forget the kid's name, but he gives great deals to my brother-in-law and I.

Tom is great, but a little more stingy with the bait than the boys are.

I think the pines would be great choices for opener this year. I just hope the slot limit won't make fisherman take the real small ones.
