Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 8-03-04

It’s the first week of August and it’s hard to believe the walleye fishing is as good as it is. Winnie is still putting out fish like a champ with most of the fish coming out of the deep water. Seems like all the humps have a few fish on them but only a couple have a good bunch of fish. So that means you gotta move around till you find a good bunch of fish. Long lindy rigs seem to be the best right now too. Make sure to start with at least a 6-7ft leader. The perch after being on the rocks for the last couple weeks have kinda disappeared but I think they will start showing up on the humps real soon. The Northern and muskie action have been pretty good the last week with some nice fish coming into them weeds.

Bowstring is still going well with limits of fish being caught off the humps, shoreline, and the main lake break. Pokegama also is putting out some walleyes, Northerns and Bass all day long.So if your coming up to the Grand Rapids area you have a lot of choices right now to get to some of our area’s beautiful resorts and still get some fish
Good luck fishing

Jason,
How have the mayflies been the past few weeks? We will be up in the area in about 3 weeks, also, what is the average temperature for the end of August into Labor Day?

Thanks for your reply, also, how can I get your fish batter here in the cities?

My user name is my e-mail.

Thanks,
GHS

Jason,
Thanks for the info. We will be on Prairie Lake later this month visiting my wife's grandparents. Do you own a bait shop in Grand Rapids? If so, what's the name, and location? My wife's cousin got the fish batter over the 4th of July holiday, so that's how I know about it, it's very good!!!
Thanks again,
GHS

I do not own a bait shop that would be Bens bait in G.R. I am glad you like it and pass it on to others. you can get it in almost any store in G.R. and deer river and we are out as far as Bemidji so far

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
