Lake Winnie Ice Fishing Report for March 12, 2010

Hello, from Big Winnie!

It has been warm and comfortable to go fishing. The snow is gone and most of the water has gone down. Travel on the ice, as of now, is good. Check in at a resort for up to date conditions.

Perch are biting on the shore drops, now, with depths of 12 to 20 foot being best, as well as the rocks off Ravens Point.

Tullibee are biting well, also. If you like smoked fish, go to the mud in 40 foot and use waxworms. If you find a Saddle area, fish for the tullibee on the East side of the saddle.

For perch, start to fish for them in the 12 to 20 foot range and then move deeper.

Sunnies are going on Pimushe, Sucker Lake and in Big Cutfoot. 20 to 30 deep is working best, just before dark.

Crappies are also going on the same lakes, but deeper, usually down to 35 feet. Minnows or waxworms are working best.

Truck travel should be safe for about a week yet, then wheelers for another week. Call ahead for conditions as they can change quickly at this time of year.

See you on the water!
