Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 5-31-04

Happy Memorial day to all out there.
Another week of cold and wind up here in the Northland. Winnie is just at 54 degrees water temp as of yesterday. The good news is the fishing is still pretty good. The North shore, Tamarack bay, west shore between Ravens and Mallard point all are doing well. Jig and shiner is still the top bait and they are still in the deeper water 9-11 ft. The deeper humps and bars are even producing some fish but most are over the slot limit.
Sand is producing some nice fish, look for the long flat shorelines or the bars out in the middle of the lake with a jig and minnow. Round Lake is doing well, there the shoreline is the best but they are starting to get them on the main bar too. Boswstring is also getting fish this year around the river channel and the north shore.
The fishing is starting off to a nice year with lots of fish around the area lakes. Good luck fishing and if you need more info contact me.

Well we didn't fair the best on Bowstring this trip. we managed a meal of walleye but it took some work. Shorelines in 10 to 15 Ft but we did get on in 8 Ft. we seemed to get bit on minnows and leaches about the same. Some of the fish we cleaned were stuffed and I mean stuffed with small minnows and Young of year pearch. we also had more little hammer handle pike than I can count.
I don't think I have ever woren my carharts on Memoral weekend and felt cold before. What weather!!! ish!
With the drift sock out at one point I was drifting at 1.1 mph. I'm now gonna go look into getting a second sock.
hope you all had better luck that we did/

Sounds like our weekend also. Fish Bowstring with 10-12 little northerns for every walleye. Only fished bowstring one day and found a couple small walleyes that went back.

Tried Jessie, nothin'. I've fished Jessie a handful of times in the past year and caught a few fat perch and a couple northerns. For a lake with alot of hype, I haven't found the fish... yet.

Also tried little bowstring, and fished through some nasty wind and rain. Kept telling myself with SE winds sustained for two or three days, the fish should be stacked on the northwest shoreline. But nothin'

Great weekend, poor weather, fishin is always great.

We had a couple of boats that did very well last weekend (one caught about 50 walleyes , first time ever on the lake)and other boats that fish the lake alot had only a few or none.
It was a tough weekend with rain and a sw wind the whole time.
The best bite is still to come.

      got a cool looking humpback today. black/glow dots  4mm chekai with a natural wishbone. I really like the wishbones but dang, would be nice if they were stronger.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
