GRANITE FALLS

3 posts in this topic


WELL OUR DAY ENDED AT GRANITE FALLS...IT SHOULD HAVE BEGUN THERE! THERES NO WAY WE FOUND TO ACCESS THE DAM AREA ON FOOT SO WE PUT FISHHEADS JET BOAT IN AND GOT UP THERE IN NO TIME. VERY NICE WATER HERE! WE MANAGED A COUPLE OF WALLEYES AND WERE SURPRISED TO FIND SOME NICE CRAPPIES TOO. THE WHITE BASS WERE PLENTIFUL AS WELL.
THIS SPOT DESERVES SOME MORE ATTENTION EH FISH? (NICE 24"!)
WET NETS!

After a day of bumping shoulders with other fisherman in places that the fish were scarce it was a very nice ending to the day.Plenty of action,some quality fish,very pretty scenery,and difficult enough to get to that we could enjoy it for ourselves.(I love low water)I think we will be spending some more time there!

By the hair on my chin I am free to play all weekend.Boy I am going to pay for it next week though.When we going?!!

Water levels have dropped about 4" since last weekend,and I'm sure we are looking at some much lower water temps.Lower temps should help the fishing but I wonder if the drastic change in temps is all that good.With the cold air temps and wind she must have coooled off in a hurry.Can't wait to find out though.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
