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.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!

      Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?  🤔  😆

      I am gonna go out on a limb here and say they did not catch a 15 pound walleye on Upper Red in MN.
