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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
