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.

      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.
