Hi everyone, i'll be fishing the grand rapids area for the first time on sunday may 30th and monday may 31st before heading to cass lake for the PWT tournament that i'll be an amatuer partner in. Wanted to know where I should go around rapids to fish. I have a 15 aluminum with a 15hp motor so I probably should stay away from a big lake incase it gets rough. I'll be fishin alone so if anyone wants to join me i'll be more than happy to have company. i can be emailed at gjboomer at yahoo dot com or post your reply. thanks for any info anyone is willing to give. thank you

Gary

Might want to give Round Lake at the town of Squaw Lake a try. We limited out Monday and Tuesday within 1/2 mile of the north boat access in 6-9 ft. Smaller boat would work just fine.

Kabul,

Were you fishing Round Saturday and Sunday too? I was out the Friday, Saturday and half of Sunday. We did all right. Others in my party stayed until Tuesday and did much better.

Fished Sand on Saturday and Sunday and got 4 fish total. Monday and Tuesday on Round, water temp was about 10 degrees warmer on Round. We did pick up some crappies on Sand in the evenings.

Prairie Lake holds a lot of walleyes and shouldn't be too bad right now. It's a shallower, stained-water lake so it's a pretty good early season producer. Perfect for the smaller boat and is also very close to the GR area.
Has anyone been out night fishing anywhere yet? Saw a couple of boats at some of the area lakes already. I don't come across too many other people who do it so was just wondering if anyone on here does some. There's a lot of good night lakes in the area for pig walleyes.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
