Grand Lake near Alpena, Michigan
There are tons (literally) of nice fish in Grand Lake. The only problem; they are really hard to catch. This is not a lake for a beginner looking to catch a bunch of fish. At over 6,660 acres of water there are 1,000s of spots to try so I am not even going to try to specify. I will give you some general areas to try that should work though; first off islands usually hold fish. Whiskey Bay is another good spot to try. Whiskey Point, the east end of the lake, and Black Bass bay round out the group. Weedlines, boat docks, drop offs, fallen trees, and points will also hold fish. I recommend fishing shallow in the spring and part of the fall and in or near deeper water the rest of the year. During the open water season the windblown side of the lake will usually hold more fish. Unfortunately, I can't give you any specific tips for baits too. All I can say is start out fishing faster baits like spinners, topwaters, and crankbaits. Then, if you don't catch anything, move to slower baits like spoons, swimbaits, soft plastics, and live bait. Tight Lines!
