Grand Lake

Where are the fish on this lake, The last two weeks have been really poor fishing. Marking fish there coming up but no action. We have the house on the far east side 29' of water. 5-6 fish houses around us, no luck though looking for walleyes and crappies.

Move the house and go exploring, people arent going to tell you where to fish and find fish, gotta go find them yourself.

I agree, the only way to catch fish in that lake is moving til you find them, they never really concentrate anywhere, especially this time of year.

You'll find fish both shallow and deep in Grand. If you're marking fish then you are in hte general area. Make a few moves like the guys have mentioned. I'd recommend getting a bit shallower.

Tried Grand not last weekend, but the weekend before. Had word of some crappies biting. Started a ways east of the access and drilled holes anywhere from 8-16 feet working east. Ended up with a couple small sunnies. Ended up running out to the east end of the lake by the bar. Drilled lot's of holes around the houses out there with nothing but small perch. I do not fish this lake to often, usually in the spring right around ice out. I know they are in there, but where at this time of year is beyond me.

True. I'm not sure about winter, but there are decent weeds all along the south shoreline about 100 yards out. They continue around the corner and to the west side of the lake too.

You'll find scatter cabbage beds along the breaklines. There will be some in the areas you are talking about. If not work your way east a bit.

Once again that is another lake that is best learned by experiences, however lots of people tend to fish out in front of the resort, i've tried it a few times and usally come up empty except for a few small ones here and there. One of my favorite lakes for late ice panfish though, because you can find clear water in 5-8 ft sometimes more and you can sight fish them. 2 yrs ago i was doing that and caught a limit of nice sunfish a couple 1lb crappies and a 6.5lb bucketmouth, that was fun had to let him go, couple weeks earlier and he;d oh been on the wall!!

      Where are you located?

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon. 
    • mrpike1973
      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
