Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 5-24-04

What a week up here, nothing but cold and wind. The wind doesn’t seem to be out of the same direction for 2 days in a row. Only in Minnesota.
The best bite I can tell you about is still happening on winnie, the fish are out deeper in the 9-12 ft but when you find an active bunch they can go pretty fast and furious for awhile. Shiners are still available so I would say use them when you can with a nice 1/8 oz round head or fireball from northland that has been the killer. There are a few other fairly decent bites going on in the area. You can check out splithand, Round, Lawrence Lake all good reports on those too. Some of the other area lakes it seems like the water temps and the weather are just too cold to get anything consistent going yet.
The Northerns were biting good on Spider and Wabana yesterday right along the edges of the old weed beds with a jig and minnow, and pretty decent size.
The crappies are out there on some area lakes. Little winnie ,little cutfoot, Lawrence lake just to name a few have been putting out some nice catches.
Good luck fishing and I’ll see you on the water.

Thanks for the reports Jason. Any word from Bowstring? Talked to some people on opener and the word was 28' - 30'feet of water. We were on Jesse and caught four, and they were in 8-10 feet. A little slower than we had hoped for. We'll be back up this coming weekend, hoping to find them coming in shallower mornings and evenings on Bowstring. Appreciate the tips.

I haven't fished Bowstring yet but I did talk to four guys that had just come off the lake on Friday. Thay said they had a few and were all caught in the 17' range. From all reports so far it sounds slow.

BIG ISLAND DUDE

I have a place on Big Island, which is a spring fed lake, and the water is the lowest I have seen it in years. Some of my favorite shallow Bass structure is completely out of the water. I have also a checked out quite a few other smaller spring fed lakes in the area and they are also quite low.

With the exception of a few slow days, fishing has been very good on a lot of the smaller lakes I have been to. The Pike have really been biting good in 5'-15' of water on Rapalas and sucker minnows.
In the Big Island area, as of last weekend, the lily pads have barely begun to come up. Hopefully the water temp will raise a little by this weekend to help things sprout up and provide more fishable structure for the Bass opener.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
