Grand Rapids Ice Fishing Report

Grand Rapids Ice Fishing Report brought to you by Tom Neustrom, professional fishing guide and owner of guide fishing business, MN Fishing Connections.

The nice break of warm weather got lots of anglers out on the ice. There is plenty of ice on area lakes but always continue to use caution.

The walleye fishing has slowed somewhat but there are still fish being taken in the evening during the last two hours of daylight. Smaller spoons with a minnow head orĀ  dead stick seem to be the best presentations. Big Cutfoot, off-shore humps on Big Winnie, Moose Lake, and Pokegama Lake are still places to try.

Crappies and bluegills still seem to be providing most of the action in the Grand Rapids area. There are 50 lakes within 30 miles of Grand Rapids that provide good opportunities for both species. Lighter baits tipped with wax worms and euro larvae are important additions to small spoons and jigs. Light line and soft tip rods are also crucial to success. Good electronics are also an important part of the arsenal and drilling several holes in and around the area you are fishing can be all important. Once you find fish try to keep your bait slightly above the fish. All species seldom will go after baits that are below them. Good luck and enjoy your time on the ice.
