Wabanna Lake Near Grand Rapids

2 posts in this topic

I am going up to wabanna on july 25 and staying for a couple of days. I am looking for some information regarding walleyes and pike.

I looked at the lake maps and it is pretty much a deep bowl and for this reason i am wondering if the walleyes are normally suspended under the tullibees.

Is the panfishing any good.

Deep bowl? Go to mapquest and type in Grand Rapids, then go north of town and zoom in on Wabana Lake and hit the "arial image" up in the right corner. You'll see some of the structure and sunken islands that are out there. Just don't go flying across the lake cause you could hit some rock. As for fishing, lots of panfish but you'll do some sorting for anything to keep. Bass fishing for both lmb and smb is awesome. I've never had much luck w/ gators up there. As for walleyes, jig and shiner in about 15' of water in the evening was working 2 weeks ago. You'll also catch some nice bass going w/ a jig and minnow. We usually slip bobber fish on some structure in the evenings w/ leeches and catch a little bit of everything. Dont forget to check out Bluewater and especially Little and Big Trout lakes. Awesome scenery!!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
