Lake Winnie Fishing Report for May 24, 2011

Hello, from Big Winnie!

The fishing opener on Lake Winnie has now come and gone. Fishing was pretty good even though the weather wasn't cooperating with us. Early in the morning, the shiner jig bite went as usual (which is very good) in the 6-12 foot depth range. Then, as the day wore on, you could rig and run in deeper water down to 25 feet and do quite well. The bite slowed a bit on Monday and Tuesday into the early part of the following week. Certainly, the walleye bite has gotten much better again lately.

The North shore from Farley Creek to Mallard Point is a great stretch to try right now. The first shore drops are going quite well now, also. Snag Hole, Moxey's Drop and the Sugar area all going well, too.

Panfish (sunfish and crappies) will start biting very good with just a couple of consistently good days of warm temps. Perch are being caught with the walleyes in the deeper water.

See you on the lake!

P.S. We have several openings in our cabins throughout June. Please let us know if there's a week or weekend when you would like to visit and get into some great spring walleye fishing.
