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

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
