Lake Winnie Fishing Report for August 21, 2009

Hi, from Big Winnie.

The fishing is good now. The deep structure is still producing fish on rigs and leeches or crawlers. Humps have been good. 20 down to 30 feet of water. Shore breaks also good. High Banks, Moxeys Hole and the Snag Hole are all producing fish - 15 feet down to 30. On rigs, same program. Weed bite has been good also with fireball jigs and minnows. Moving quickly through the weeds at 1-1.5 mph, long line the jigs and hold on.

Pike getting very active at this time also. We had several fish in the 4 to 6 lb range cleaned this week.

Area panfish lakes kicking out sunnies and crappies early and late in the day. This time of the year is good for fishing all day long. Play the wind, pick an area on the lee side of the lake and go get some fish!
