Lake Winnie Fishing Report for July 7, 2010

The walleye are in typical summer patterns now. There are some fish found in weedlines, humps and main lake bar structures, as all are active, but with several shorter bite windows through out the day. The windier days are being a bit better to fishermen and women. The best weed areas have been the east side from the Rock north to the Reclaim area in 5 to 8 feet of water. The west side from Ravens Point to Mallard Point and Sugar Island around to the bird houses East to Little Stoney. The North shore weeds have been good also in 7 to 12 feet of water, just out deeper. The main lake bars are best played with the wind blowing into or along the drops. 15 to 28 feet best. Leeches and crawlers are the best baits right now. Trollers are getting some fish on smaller cranks trolled down to 18 feet.

Perch are getting very active on the rocks down to 23 feet.

Pike have picked up quite a bit lately! Trolling spoons and larger cranks are the ticket. High Banks area North to the Sisters have been good. The weeds from Pigeon to Big Stoney are also good for pike. Several in the 7 to 9 lb. range have been caught.

Area panfish waters are hot now for Sunnies. Most are off their beds and fished deeper 8 down to 14 feet during the day. Crappies are active at twilight periods.

See you on the water!
