( August 17, 2017 )

Fishing slowed down a touch this past weekend and into early week with this stretch of cooler weather and rain. Fishing was and is still consistent, but you have to work for them a little harder. This coming weekends forecast looks great so action should increase once again. All in all the multi species bite is still very good around the Grand Rapids area. Walleyes will be walleyes this time of year. Like I tell my clients, "With a little searching, we will find them."

We have been using a couple different presentations as of late to target walleyes. A fast presentation is working best to put eater walleyes in the boat. Reaction bites will always catch more fish this time of year. Spinners tipped with crawlers and pulled 1.0-1.2 mph have triggered the best walleye bites this week. Working the edge of the weeds and the mid lake bars has provided great action with spinners. Jigging rapalas (another reaction tactic) have also put walleyes in the boat during those mid day hours. In the early morning and late evening hours a slow tactic has been utilized to target big walleyes and pike. Rigging a big minnow (creek chub, sucker) off the main lake humps and bars has put some hog walleyes and a few giant pike in the Lund boats the past couple weeks. Slip bobbers with leeches have also provided good walleye action in the evening hours. Everyday is different so be prepared with an array of bait and a couple different presentations when you head out to the lake this weekend. Good Luck.

Look to Leech Lake, Upper Red, Cass, Pokegama, Trout, and Bowstring for your best area walleye bites right now!
