This week’s Grand Rapids Fishing Report brought to you by Tom Neustrom, MN Fishing Connections.
Several anglers are still fishing area lakes, but for many they are getting their boats and equipment ready to store for the winter season. Next week, Tom will share with you winterization tips for your equipment and boats.
Anglers that still want to catch walleyes and crappies still have opportunities in the Grand Rapids, Minnesota area. The Mississippi River has been a great place to catch walleyes especially from Ball Club Lake down stream. Some of the area lakes are still providing action, but it’s mostly early and late in the day. Big Cutfoot has also been a good location during the day and a jig and minnow has been good in both locations.
The leaves are down and it’s been a beautiful fall in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Now that the leaves have fallen, it allows for great hunting opportunities in the Grand Rapids area. There are millions of public accessible acres to hike and hunt on. Check out our hunting page for more details. Duck and grouse hunters have been doing well and the season has been above average. Many people are starting to get their deer stands ready with Minnesota rifle deer season opening on November 5, 2016. It is a good idea to check out the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Deer Hunting Tips resource website prior to heading out to hunt. Good luck and enjoy the last few weeks of open water angling and duck hunting.
On top of great fishing and hunting, Grand Rapids is known for their great hospitality and lodging. There are great places to stay from conveniently located Hotels, and those that have full amenities, economical Motels, Minnesota Resorts where you have an entire cabin to yourself, or a quaint and charming B&B.
