Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 8-10-04

After one of the toughest weeks we have had for fishing Walleye things are going to mellow out abit around here. We have been struggling alittle with the big cold front last week; it seemed like the walleyes just shut right down. With the southerly winds and warmer temps it should get up to speed soon. We found some walleye in the weeds on winnie yesterday and look for the bite to get better. The perch were also scattered in there with a few Northerns. Try any side of the lake with the wind blowing into or adjacent to and it has been working pretty well. Use as lite a jig as you can get by with in those weeds and rip it right through.
Bowstring has been alittle slow too, but its saving grace has been the crappies out in the main basin. Look around on the edges of the humps and look for the schools on your depth finder and drop a jig on them and you are in buisness. Sand has also started to pick up on the crappies with the same presentation working there.
Good luck fishing

Jason,
Really appreciate the reports you've been putting out each week.
The whole family (about 25 of us) are going to be on Bowstring this coming Sat-Tues and I was wondering if you could give me a shoreline reference point to help locate those humps on the north end, how far out from shore, etc.. I usually spend time down on the rocks, SE corner, but would like to try some other spots, especially with all the kids. It would be nice to get on some of those crappies you're talking about.
Thanks for any tips,
Dan

the humps are out from the landing 150-200 yards and to the right all the way to close to the shoreline some have jugs on the you just have look for them there will be people on them sometimes
the craps are out on the main lake on the humps and the main drop that goes to the deep water anywhere yoou find that you will find the craps

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor

      Even serious anglers get seriously lonely. Fished too many metro lakes and beyond to count. Fishing has always Kept me sane and sober, its what I and I do it well. Recently moved, wondering if there's anyone out there who might wanna swap some tips, tricks, and hopefully some big ones. Not very good at this kind of stuff but hey, what do I got to lose by asking?!  Thanks, M.E.

      Loved across the street from it for years, on timbershore lane. I've caught monsters, several shore spots if you know where to findem. I just moved to inver grove heights and am looking for someone (or more!) To go back asap and catch some whoppers

      I've ice fished it a few times, this year actually. It's unnamed crappies and northerns, it's true it's private land but I've never had any trouble, guys in the buildings parking lot always waved to me.
