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.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
