The Grand Rapids Fishing Report 5/27/15 by Tom Neustrom, MN Fishing Connections.
Minnesota’s weather can change on a dime and many times the fishing will follow. Not lately!! The fishing for a multitude of species has been very good. Walleye fishing on area lakes has been good to excellent and Grand Rapids area lakes are providing good action. Big Splithand, Jessie, Bowstring and Scenic 7 Round Lake have been giving anglers nice catches of walleyes. A Jig and a minnow still has been best, but some fishermen are doing well on leeches and rigs plus a leech and a slip bobber. Northern pike have been active on Pokegama and Bass Lakes. Crappies have moved shallow preparing for spawning and have also provided good action and good eating. The much needed rain of the last 10 days have brought lake levels up to near normal . We are looking for great fishing this next few weeks so come visit us in Grand Rapids and we will tell you where they are biting.
