Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Wind, wind and more wind that has been the story in the northland this week. This means we have had to fish some smaller lakes since winnie has not been an option. We have fished Sand with some success, Cass has been decent and splithand has been good. Most of the bite on these smaller lakes has been in the emerging weeds on the bigger flats. We are using 1/8 or 1/16 oz fireball jig and a shiner. We have been out on Winnie a couple of the days and the fishing has been good also. The wind doesn’t seem to be in the same direction for any length of time so the fish seem to be in a different place all the time, but if you keep moving you will find the active fish. I have been using jig and minnow in the 6-10 ft of water but I have heard reports of fish out on the bars with leeches in the deeper water.

Good luck fishing

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
