Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Another year has gone with our annual handicapped fishing day. We had 43 handicapped people stay up at Lakewood lodge on sand lake for the night, then 16 fishing guides met them in the morning and took them fishing for a couple hours and we all came back and fixed them fresh fish they caught and potatoes and a host of other goodies people brought in. It was a treat. So hats off to Lakewood for donating their resort and all the fishing guides and the businesses that donated.

Speaking of sand what a treat to fish. The walleyes are there and finally starting to chew alittle most came from 9-11 ft on a crawler but some were caught with jig and minnow also. The panfish are also starting to be on the deep cribs and some of the rocks out in the deep water.

Winnie has been a good early fall bite also look for the fish in 4-7 ft with jig and minnow and a crawler is also working. The shad raps are also working with a nice mixture of walleye and northern both coming in when trolling in the 5-7 ft. The perch are showing up on those flats too and some dandies with a jig and minnow. I heard Pokie was good with the full moon trolling cranks on the edge of the flats and Trout Lake is starting to get going with a jig and minnow.

The fishing is only going to get better from here so get out and enjoy

What day did you have your annual handicapped event? What a nice thing for you guides to do. Kudos!! I am surprised you were successful with crawlers. Couldn't get them to hit all week while we were up on Sand.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
