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.
