Lake Winnie Ice Fishing Report for February 21, 2010

Hello, from Big Winnie.

The weather has been as good as the fishing has been this weekend. The perch bite continues to be excellent on the main lake bars. The perch are running deeper, though - 29 to 40 feet is the most common depths to find them. Minnows and glow jigs are still working. The rocks off Ravens are going well for perch, as is the Moxey drop and the Saddle on the east side.

Pike are active also. The tip-up guys are getting fish in the 30 to 38-inch class in between 14 to 20 feet of water and fishing about 2 feet up from the bottom.

Walleyes are spotty with short bite windows. Most areas up in the humps North of Third River Bar has a few getting caught right at dark. The main lake bars such as Moses, Bena, Big, Little Musky and Horseshoe are producing a few walleyes and their beoing found on top of the bars.

Tullibees have started biting rather well over the mud areas between Third River Bar and the Saddle, also. They are fun to catch, plus take a few home and smoke them.

Road conditions good. Snow cover has not changed much.
