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

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
