Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Finally the fishing is starting to go again pretty decent. The walleye’s are starting to bite on winnie. We have been catching fish off high banks , ravens, stoney all the fall places with the right wind. Jig and minnow is my bait of choice but crawlers,leeches and shad raps are doing well too. Bowstring, sand are also kicking out some fish too. The crappies are starting to show up on their deep haunts also. The fall bite has just started so get out and enjoy.

We used to buy a "Bag" of minnows on our way in to Winnie at LeRoys Bait Shop but I hear they are closed. Where else is there to buy a "Bag" of minnows.

Thanks

Steve

Go to Ben's if your in Grand Rapids. He is by far the most generous of the area bait shops.

If you aren't going to Grand Rapids, Froggy's Sports and Bait is on the left side of 371 in Cass Lake as you come from the south, a mile or so +- south of the Hwy 2 intersection.

Thanks Fisherman and Otter for the info on the Bait Shops, now all I have to do is decide on which way I should come from??????? Let me see,,, go West from Garrison to Brainerd and North on 371 or North through Aitkin & up to Grand Rapids???? confused.gif

Just too many choices but if my memory is right, Cass Lake has a better grocery store???? confused.gif

Nice to know that I have options.

Cass Lake has Teal's Super Valu (corner of 2 and 371), but it is small as Super Valus go. In addition to Cub, Grand Rapids has Ogle's Warehouse Grocery that is a couple blocks west of the mall where the Perkins Restaurant used to be - (approximately 4th St.). In the past it was Gordy's Super Valu and County Market. I also like Fred's Bait in Deer River if you will be going through there.

WE NORMALLY STOP AT FRED'S BUT LAST TIME UP MY WIFE NEEDED SOME GROCERIES SO WHILE SHE WAS IN THE GROCERY STORE I THOUGHT I WOULD SLIP AROUND THE CORNER TO BEN'S.... ONCE INSIDE I PICKED UP MY BAIT AND APPROACHED THE COUNTER. THERE WERE ABOUT TEN CUSTOMERS IN THERE AT VARIOUS STAGES OF SHOPPING. SOME AT THE COUNTER SOME WAITING FOR BAIT SOME LOOKING AROUND AND ONLY ONE GUY WORKING. SINCE I WAS KIND OF PRESSED FOR TIME I JUST PUT THE BAIT BACK AND GOT ON MY WAY. NORMALLY I WOULD HAVE WAITED BUT...IF YOU ASK ME THERE SHOULD BE TWO PEOPLE WORKING ON THE WEEKEND. ONE TO TAKE MONEY AND ONE TO HELP CUSTOMERS WITH BAIT AND STUFF.

That kinda thing can happen at any bait shop but at this time of the year they might go a hour without a cust. and they are paying 2 people to do nothing.When that happens I just go check out the jigs to see if they made a new one that I don,t have yet. grin.gif

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
