Grand Rapids MN Fall Fishing Report

Fall Guided Fishing Trip by Jeff Johnson, Northern Drift Outfitters.

This weeks Grand Rapids MN Fall Fishing Report is brought to you by Tom Neustrom, owner of professional guiding services: MN Fishing Connections. “The Fall fishing is most certainly upon us and things are beginning to change weekly. Water temperatures are at or about in the low 60’s,” shares Neustrom.

Walleye fishing continues to improve on area lakes and will provide good opportunities in many of the area lakes. Deer, Splithand. Winnie, Cutfoot and Bowstring are great destinations in the fall for good walleye fishing. Jig and minnow will be the presentation of choice, but trolling crankbaits late in the day and after dark can be a great option as well. For jig choice we prefer the VMC Mooneyes in 1/8th and 1/4 ounce size with a shiner or rainbow chub.

Musky fishing has improved greatly with the cooler weather. Anglers have reported seeing several more fish of late and Double Girl Bucktails have been attracting fish to the boat. Good choices to catch a fish of a lifetime are Moose, Deer, Blandin Reservoir, North Star Lake and Little Winnie.

Clients of Tom Neustrom, Ron & Joyce Hein of Duluth, caught these nice fall crappies on a Grand Rapids, MN lake.

Panfish continue to provide consistent action on area lakes and on most bodies of water they have pulled away from shoreline locations and are seeking deeper soft bottom areas. Small jig and minnows or chunk of night crawler on a jig will put fish in the boat.

With over 1,000 area lakes, you are sure to catch fish this fall in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The Fall is a great time to head north to Grand Rapids, Minnesota to catch fish.
