Grand Rapids Fall Fishing Report 10-1-14 by Tom Neustrom, MN Fishing Connections
The image of Minnesota’s Duck Opener is always Northwest winds with rafts of ducks coming into one’s decoys. It’s a sight my friends live for. This past weekend the winds blew South and the ducks hunkered down and didn’t fly for the most part. 2014 Duck Opener will go down in history with mixed results. As in fishing there is always someone who solves adversity and is successful. Better hunting will be here and for the duck hunters that live for the moment it will be every day they put out a set of decoys and re-live the moment of yester year.
Fall fishing continues to improve and many area lakes are doing well. Northern Pike fishing has taken an upward turn with nice pike, some trophies, showing up. Spider lake and North Star have given up several Pike in the upper 30 inch range. Walleye fishing has improved on Big Winnie, and Big Splithand. Crappie fishing continues to shine on Big Cutfoot, Big Splithand, and Spider lakes. It’s so important to enjoy natures art festival and be part of this awesome time of the year. Come join us in Grand Rapids. We are truly in “Minnesota’s Nature”
