Lake Winnie Summer Fishing Report for July 29, 2010

Hello, from Big Winnie!

The fishing has been very good! You can catch fish a variety of ways. You can troll smaller crankbaits over the weeds and just outside of them. Perch colored and gold black baits have been the best. You can rig the humps and main lake bars with crawlers and leeches. The best depths are 16 to 25 feet. You can weed-fish with jigs and minnows. Moving fast at 1 to 1.5mph. You can bottom bounce with spinners and crawlers in the 8 to 14 foot area in that in-between zone again fast 1 to 1.7 mph. Or lastly, throw out a slip bobber and a leech and relax until you have to net a fish. Pick the way you like to fish and go get them.

Perch bite has been getting better as the fish are starting to group up. Some deeper fish on the humps have been going well down to 30 foot. Jigs and minnows the best for larger fish.

Pike bite is ok with plenty of fish on the bar drops up high 12 to 16 feet or in the weeds. Numbers of fish but size is sort of small. Catch 7 or 8 and you will put a good one in. So a lot of bites! The Raven point area, Moses bar and Horseshoe have all been good this week.
