Lake Winnie Ice Fishing Report for March 8, 2012

Hello, from Big Winnie.

The perch bite is continuing to go good around the lake. We have had good luck on some of the humps north of Third River Bar in the 21 to 25 foot range. Deeper, and you get into some tullibee. They are fun to catch and very good to eat when smoked. The Tamarac Bay area is still producing in the 10 to 14 foot range. East side Saddle area south to the stumps is going pretty well in 15 to 22 feet. West side has fish in the river mouths, 5 to 11 feet of water, or out to the Sugar Island and up to Ravens Rocks. We have a good bite going early in the day, daybreak till 2 is the best time period. A short window is also good from from 4 till dark.

The weather has been warm. Many are fishing outside and running big lines (rows of several holes) of holes has been the ticket. Snow cover has come down a bit. We still have 5 to 8 inches, yet. Some travel off road is ok in less drifted areas. We have a warm week ahead forecasted, so call ahead to get the an up to the minute report on lake conditions.

See you on the lake.
