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.

Jason, how deep of water should person be in when trolling cranks? What kind of minnow do you use with jigs? Shinners are done right?

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

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

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
