Grand Rapids Fall Fishing Report 10-7-20
Today’s Grand Rapids Fall Fishing Report 10-7-20 brought to you by Tom Neustrom, owner of professional guide service, MN Fishing Connections.
Walleye fishing has definitely kicked into another gear and the bite has been very good. Many lakes in the Grand Rapids area has been producing good catches of walleyes, especially Winnie and Cutfoot. Anglers have been filling the launch ramps and the fish are biting. There are all sizes available with larger trophy fish and nice keeping size fish for a great dinner. People are happy with their results and the area businesses have been very excited with the enthusiasm of their customers. For great bait options stop Fred’s Bait in Deer River, River Rat Bait in Cohasset, and !000 Lakes Sports in Grand Rapids. All three can also give you some great advice where to fish, supply you with whatever you need. Some other lakes that are producing nice catches of walleyes are Big Splithand, Moose, Jessie, and the Mississippi River.
Crappies have started to show up in some of their fall locations and use your electronics to located schools and
vertically fish them with small jigs and minnows or plastics. Number #5 Jigging Raps are also a great choice for catching crappies when you locate suspended schools. Cutfoot, Little Cutfoot, Little Ball Club, Pokegama, Graves, and Bowstring have all been giving up crappies.
Perch fishing has also been very good and the fish have moved shallow and are also right in with the walleyes. Small jigs and minnows will work great once you find a concentration of hungry perch. Edges of weeds and shallow rocks will all hold nice perch.
Grouse hunting has been good with plenty of birds available especially off roads areas of the main trails. Duck hunting has been decent and there are some northern ducks starting to show up. The late season weather is beautiful and get outside and enjoy the best of Mother Nature has to offer.
