Grand lake
« on: Mar 21, 2022, 04:19 PM »
Went up to northern maine this weekend to do some plumbing work/ fishing for a friend who bought a place on grand  lake. Place was right on the water so I set my traps up while I was working and my buddies wife watched the traps. Fishing was slow, had one jaw jacker go off the first day and had what I think was a big salmon but snapped my line and the second day got a nice 23” salmon out of the same hole, fought like Crazy. Caught some decent cusk but the salmon was the highlight because we can’t catch them in the winter🙄 Got to make some money and fish at the same time can’t beat that. Ice was 3’ thick the auger barely made it through

Love east grand lake ..we spent two weeks up there one July ..crushed tbe smallmouth ..fun trip
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

Can’t beat that!
How's the ice they all ask? "I’ll tell you what, you can get a good look at a t-bone by sticking your head up a bull’s butt, but I’d rather take the butcher’s word for it."

Heading to East Grand (and Baskahegan) in June for a week this summer for smallies.  Can't wait.  Probably troll a few mornings for salmon and togue on Grand too depending on conditions.

Nice fish!

Good to know, jibbs.  Any size?  I've always heard crazy numbers in that area but a lot of 14-16".  Also, I'm there June 13-19, hopefully water temps are okay.  And not really a fan of pulling females off beds all day long, if I hit the spawn dead-on.

I talked to a local at the lake about the summer months and bass, he told me grand lake has a huge population of bass and said he has regularly pulled out 4-5 lb bass. I might have to take another road trip to find out for myself!

My family has a camp up there. We don't often target bass, but you can get a lot trolling close to shore. They love Bomber crankbaits. I've seen multiple smallies over 4 pounds come out, but none in the last couple of years.
