Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Water temps are starting to warm up in the area. Most of the lakes are in the low to mid 60’s and the fish are really biting. We have been fishing Winnie still in the shallows in 7-10 ft of water with a jig and minnow. The north shore has been the place to be lately, from pigeon up to stoney. The deep water is starting to show fish also with fish in the 16-21 ft. We have been using 3/8-oz jigs with a shiner or leech or a lindy and a leech. Sand and bowstring have been producing some fish also. They are the same, some fish in the shallows and some in the deep water. We have also been hitting Cass Lake with some fish in Allen’s bay in the shallower water and some fish on the bars over by the dam. Pokegama has been producing walleye in the 20-25 ft off some of the humps and deep points with a jig and minnow.

Good luck fishing

I think it will be still going then and i think we will see more and more going on on the humps but the shoreline bite will stay with us for awhile

Any Musky areas on the north end you'd reccomend... (I'm staying in South Deer Lake on CFS)

I'm in the first wave of my group that's heading up, and I'll have about 8 hours to chase Musky (If I decide to) before the rest of the "Walleye Only" crew gets up there...

I've never targeted Musky on Winnie... My only guess is that shallow weed flat on the south end of Tamarac bay, near the the old river channel...

Thanks!

Fished out of McArdle's 5/31 through 6/3. Found fish on Mallard, Ravens, Sugar Bar, Sugar Bay, and by the minnow traps near the river. Lots of slot fish with 26" being the biggest. Caught most on jig and shiner and some on a Roach Rig and leech.

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      Lundeens was out of shiners when I was there granted it was Sunday

      I believe that one in Monticello closed down

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
