Lake Winnibigoshish Fishing Report for June 29, 2011

Hello, from Lake Winnibigoshish.

The walleye bite is still very good right now. It's a great time for a visit. The bar bite is hot, hot, hot! Bena bar from Big Musky north through Long bar is excellent and producing many walleyes. Horseshoe and Snag have been going well also for good numbers of eater walleyes. You can get "weed fish" yet, but they are spread out now. Rigs or spinners tipped with leeches or crawlers have been the best presentation to be using for walleyes. Plenty of fish to eat or take pictures of. Just come on up and you'll find the fish! The north humps are starting to go strong also, with a few monster perch mixed in. These perch have been HUGE!! They are so much fun to catch!

The pike bite is getting better, troll bigger cranks outside of the weeds in 8 to 12 feet of water. Pike fishing later in the day has been better than other times in the day. We have seen several pike caught in the 8 lb. range.

Crappies and Sunnies have been caught in the deeper weeds in Cutfoot, Portage and Ball Club lakes, evenings being the best.

Time to go fishing! Come on up! You won't regret it!
