Late Season Fishing in Grand Rapids Minnesota

A client of Tom Neustrom, Cari Walkden from Tulsa, OK, caught this nice late season walleye on a Grand Rapids area lake.

This week’s late season Grand Rapids, Minnesota fishing report brought to you by Tom Neustrom. Tom owns professional fishing guide service, MN Fishing Connections. Looking to have a memorable fall fishing experience, give Tom a call.

The cooler weather has arrived and the fishing for several species has been improving daily. Walleyes have been starting to seek their fall locations and will be in shallower as the water continues to cool. Drop offs associated with weed beds are great places to start looking for hungry walleyes. Jig and minnow combinations will be the top producer for walleyes as we move into fall. VMC Mooneye jigs tipped with a shiner or rainbow chub will put fish in the boat consistently. Some of the lakes to try this fall will be Splithand, Big Cutfoot, Trout, Big Winnie and the Mississippi River.

The recent cooler weather has also kicked the Muskie fishing into gear and anglers chasing Muskies have reported seeing several fish on their latest outings. Several fish in the 40 inch range have been caught and released and it will only get better. Some of the lakes to try will be Spider, Moose, North Star, Cutfoot, and Blandin Reservoir. Large spinner baits with a plastic trailer, jerk baits, and large crank baits all will bring fish to the boat.

Panfish have also begun to seek early fall locations and look for good fishing with small baits on outside weed lines near deeper water. Splithand, Little Cutfoot, Tioga Bay on Pokegama, Bass lake and several other lakes in the Grand Rapids area with good panfish opportunities. Have a safe holiday and enjoy the early fall fishing.
