Lake Winnie Ice Fishing Report for December 14, 2010

Hello, from Big Winnie!

We are getting some good ice going as we have been cold up here in beautiful Bena, Minnesota. Most areas are 7 to 10 inches thick. Some spots on the Mississippi River are at about 5 to 6 inches. The lake ice development is progressing well. Ice fishing for the season has begun.

We are out on sleds and atvs and portables. Starting to bring out some of the lighter shacks. The fish are going also, perch in the 20 to 30 foot range has been best.

Walleye are going in shallows, evenings, up to 5 feet of water. Bar drops and Humps up north are going at 19 to 23 feet. Check in with an area bait shop or Denny's Resort before you go out. See you on the lake.

P.S. We have additional 4-season cabins for rent, our motel rooms and we are adding even more ice fishing sleeper shacks to inventory. Make sure to call early for reservations.
