Lake Winnie Fishing Report for August 30, 2010

Hello, from Big Winnie!

The bite is still very hot!! Walleyes are in the weeds in 5 to 8 feet and being caught on jigs and minnows or jigs and 2 inches of nightcrawler. The bar bite is also going good on Sugar, the North end of Moses and The Bena Bar, from the Big Bend out to Third River Bar. Rigs and leeches have been working the best in 13 to 25 feet of water.

The perch bite is hot on all rock areas, now, shallow or deep. Really hot! Jigs and fatheads are working the best. Pike fishing has improved, with numbers being caught off the humps and bar edges on big cranks or the weed lines with trolled spoons. Get in on some pre-fall fishing now. This should last well into October.

This is also a good time to come up and do some scouting for deer hunting. It's best to clear shooting lanes when you can still see the leaves. We're always happy to help anyone with what hunting areas they should try for deer, grouse, ducks, etc.

See you on the water!
