Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report 6-28-04
Another week of sheer enjoyment. The fish have been on a great bite up here in the Grand rapids area. The whether might not be the warmest but the fish are biting.
Winnie is about the same as last week. Fish are moving out to the humps and bars more and more. Sugar, Zoomers all the big bars have fish and most of the small humps have plenty too. The 3/8 oz gumball from Northland and a Med light rod from St Croix is all you need to get them fish going. Leeches really haven’t started taken off yet. The shoreline is still producing fish too. Stoney, mallard, ravens even in 3 sisters they are getting some fish.
G.R lakes are about the same too. Swan, Sand, Bowstring, Pokie Splithand, are all good bites right now.
Good luck fishing

The Wife and I were on Bowstring this weekend. Walleye fishing was pretty good for us.
10 to 20 feet with 13 to 15 the most productive. She seemed to have the best action on a jig and a leach,
I couldn't seem to hook up that way. So I went to a Lindy and a crawler and got action going.
Lots of small eyes but plenty of eater fish as well. Best was a 21 incher,
Slammed a crawler on the lindy, I'm not sure if it was even on the bottom yet. 'bout jerked the rod out of my hand!
Tried jigs and shiners but couldn't keep the northern off of them long enough to get much walleye action.
Tried for some crappie in the deep reeds in the evening but that was pretty slow only 4 for a couple hour effort.
I sure wish the water level sould come up
it sure would make launching the boat easier.

Crappie it's not just a fish it's a attitude!

The wind was from the WNW so we went with that and fished the eastern side of the lake. The best action we had was while drifting a flat south of the bolder pile.
We also had some action on the northeast shoreline. If you are a night fisherman the bolder pile can be a good spot to work in the evening. I have had awsome crappie action there as well as walleye. Last year me a some buddies fhished that in the evening and watched another boat pullin crappie one after the other and we were doing the same but we were getting hammer handles, I bet we caught 50 of those little buggers before we got discussed and went in.
There is lost of places to fish on Bowstring. There are some fish cribs that can be great fishing too but they are hard to find. fish the wind and have a good time.

fishing was good even with the crappy weather. We found the fish on some of the various north end humps. We also tried the deep break off the south side of the rockpile and got a few walleyes there as well as a few crappies. 15-20 feet seemed to be the magic depth. not much going any shallower than that for us, maybe the rainy weather pushed them deeper?? The walleyes bit extremely well early in the morning from 5am - 6:30am. I would like to get up there again this year but it looks 50/50 at this point. hope this helps

We did very well on Bowstring Sat & Monday, Sat we went off the south shore in 8' and caught a bunch of eaters 14-16. Monday we went to the eagles nest and caught some nicer eyes and a few crappies in the middle of the day. mostly jigs and shinners, afew on leeches. Biats were scattered all over the lake with alot of spots producing.

      Was on the US Side between Island View and the Brule for the last two days.  Tough sledding.  A few 15's for the cast iron, three over 22 and a lot of peanuts.  Nothing big, and not much luck marking pods of fish.  Probably spent as much time graphing as I did fishing.  Still shallow I think.  Casted shorelines and caught a few little smallmouth for fun.     Back at it next week Tuesday and Wednesday.  I'm going to go bottom bouncing in some deeper water and try a few trolling patterns with rapalas... see what happens.

      Hit the big pond today ,, Launched from McQuade and found a good 10 degree temp difference  from tea to clean water ,, Fish didn't cooperate like we planned but did go 5 for 7 in 7 hours trolling but that's fishing not catching ,, Great day spent on the water with pals ,,, Good luck to those who dont have 7 day weekends like us retired folks

      Haven't been active for some time.    Life can do that to you.    Changed jobs doing somewhat the same but what is different is I've been involved with the duty and honor of interment of our Nation's Veteran's.  I'm working at the new MN Veteran's Cemetery on Hwy 53 just North of Pike Lake.  I see myself doing this till its time to retire.   That and servicing Nils Master Blades during Winter months has been kept me extremely busy. Spring, Summer, and Fall is my personally resolution to enjoy my time and take to the water as much as possible. With that I'll share what I can.   Knowing you all have busy schedules too, I ask you share when you can.  We don't ask for your secret spots but share as you can.

      Catching blues under the bridge next to archery range in Shakopee on the Minnesota River. Water rescinding about 2ft a day.

      This forum Great Again.      Lets get some reports going on the Big lake going.  I know we have lurkers and that can share.  For those that don't know, you have tools at find patterns, water temps, mudlines, and surface temps.   Coastwatch for surface water temps.  http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/superior/s1.html UMD Buoy Data for water temps. http://www.d.umn.edu/buoys/ Modis for mud lines.  https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=s&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.19170.1900.LakeSuperior.143.250m.jpg    Hottest tip I can give lately an the temp break has been right on the mud line.   Compare that data on your next trip out.

      I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?  
    • NorthBound&Down
      Has anyone here fished silver creek before? I'm looking to try a new spot on the north shore but I cant find much information on it. If you have is it fairly easy to access fishing spots there?
    • delcecchi
      I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...
    • macgruber
      Thanks for the tips, I’ll report back after and let you know how we do.  Very excited to get up there.....

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding.    Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.   on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!   Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first).    Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.
