Coming up this weekend and looking to get out on Monday for a day of fishing. Does anyone have any pointers for someone who has never fished on Grand Lake?

Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!!!

Get a lake map and study the deeper water. You'll want to get on the break. Normally there'd be lot of perms out there but the lack of ice + snow and slush has kept them off. That'll change soon.

Pike will keep you busy during the day. I'll use small go devils, pimples, rattlin jigs, slender spoons tipped with half a minnow and the bobber rod gets a crappie minnow. Watch the sounder and be ready to come up for the crappies.

ST,

Well we made the trip up from LaCrosse, WI on Sunday and I had a white knuckle drive most of the way. After making it all that way safely the guys I was suppose to go out with said there was no way that we were going to be able to go out unless we wanted to pull everything out by hand through the fresh snow and drifts (no snowmobile). Oh well, maybe the next time I make it up I'll get out.

Thanks again for the information, hopefully I'll get to put it to use sometime in the future.

Merry Christmas!!

tank, good call. You would have had a long slog out there in this deep snow and most likely, more slush.

Haven't been on Grand, but going to go tomorrow. How's the ice? Any vehicles, or is the ice questionable? Let me know.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
