GRAND RAPIDS AREA There's crappie action on Rice Lake and Lake Pokegema in 16 to 20 feet of water. The north end of Trout Lake is producing crappies in 18 feet, while the south end is giving up walleyes during the evening in 20 to 25 feet of water. Blackwater Lake and Big Splithand Lake are safe bets for northern pike with large chubs. Big Cutfoot Sioux Lake is the areas best option for bluegills.
Talked to a guy from rapids yesterday and he did say that they were driving out! How much ice, I dont know. I know a buddy that did well earlier around the wendigo arm which he lives on. I will try to get a hold of him and get you more info. I also found another report on upnorth outdoors.com for the rapids area.
