Grand Rapids, MN Buzz Bite Report 1-19-22
Overall the fishing has been decent in the Grand Rapids area. This past weekend was the Minnesota Trout opener and a good number of anglers hit the local designated trout lakes.
Most anglers found success sight fishing in less than ten feet of water. Small jigs tipped wax worms seemed to be the bait of choice, but you can also catch these trout on small spoons, Jigging Raps, and on the UL Rapala Rippin Rap.
The walleye bite has been a little tougher. You really have to target them during those primetime hours early in the morning and late in the evening. Spoons tipped with minnow heads and set lines will produce a few fish.
Main lake humps and points seem to be holding fish anywhere from eighteen to thirty feet if water. During the day you can expect to catch ciscos in the same areas type of areas.
Northern pike can be caught along the weedlines of most lakes on tips up with sucker minnows, and should provide consistent action throughout the day.
Crappies can be found in the deeper basins on most lakes in the area. A majority of them can be found between twenty and thirty five feet of water. Crappie minnows on a deadstick paired with a small jigging set up are a great one-two combo for these roaming fish.
Good luck and tight lines to all the anglers venturing out in the Grand Rapids area!
