Lake Winnibigoshish Hunting & Fishing Report for November 5, 2009

Hello from Lake Winnie!

A few fisherman are still out catching perch and a few walleyes. They are mostly running rigs and minnows from 10 to 20 feet of water, slowly moving along.

Pike fishing has been okay close to the river mouths.

Hunters are doing well for grouse, as the leaves are on the ground now. Quite a few grouse have been taken by deer hunters setting up deer stands.

Duck hunting is not good and has not been good for awhile. Very few northern ducks have come through, to date. Local ducks are pretty much gone from the area. We've heard a few reports of ducks still way north of Lake Winnie.

Weather is going to be good for awhile, especially this weekend. I'd get out on the lake for a last crack at fishing before hardwater starts.

We look forward to seeing many of you this weekend for opening deer hunting. Should be a great weekend. Bring your non-hunting buddies up with you so they can go after walleyes and perch.
