Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 5-5-05

We are finally here another opener, right around the corner. We all have been waiting for this along time. I was on red yesterday we did ok it was a lot of work to get the crappies I don’t think they are in full force quite yet. The Walleyes were nuts though and we had a great time. I will be writing my weekly reports again hopefully every mon. or tues. I will be opening at cass lake like I have for many years with my family and with the warmer weather this year it should be a banner one. I look forward to some good fishing up around our area also. Winnie, Sand, Bowstring, Splithand Pokie should all be good this year. I hope Jessie picks up a bit more consistently I think it will. Stick with a 1/8-oz leadhead jig and a good shiner and you should be able to find some fish.

Good luck on this opener to all and be safe.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
