Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Walleyes in the northland. After that heat and nasty weather we have had the walleye fishing has been abit tough. We have been getting some on Bowstring, sand winnie and even Pokegama has been decent at times, but the next minute it has been tough. Most of the fish in the area have been coming out of the weeds. We have been mostly doing the rigs or spinners with a leech or crawler, but the last couple times we have even bee getting them on a jig and minnow pulling them through the weeds. It’s been a pain because your hook is always fouled with weeds but that is where the fish are. When we have been doing this we have been catching some crappies and gills right in the junk also.

Good luck fishing

Jason Thx for the tips.

I'll be up at Island View on Sand all next week.

We rent 4-5 cabins and have a week long family reunion.

I don't need a full guide service but Would Gladly compensate you for some detailed Walleye spots/tactics.

Usualy take a token trip to Winnie But maybe maybe spend more time on Bowstring. In the weeds 'eh?

Small weedless jig/minnow.

regards PF

Coming up to Winnie this coming week-end, just wondering how the panfish are doing? What seems to work best on the Sunnies and crappies? Does plastic or live bait work better? Are they in the third river bay? or more in the lake on weed edges? Also wondering if the eyes are starting up again? Has the wind been blowing hard or has the august time frame calmed the winds? Sorry for all the questions crazy.gif

Thanks for your help smile.gif

I will also be fishing Winnie this weekend staying at The Pines resort and Campground. I was just wondering why the walleyes are tough right now? Is it weather, fishing pressure or what. Also any ideas where to start looking up in the north east part of the lake?

Thanks!

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
