Lake Winnie Opening Fishing Preparation for May 9, 2012

Hello, from Big Winnie!

Another summer fishing season is upon us already. Walleye fishing opens this Saturday. Should be a good opener as our water temps are in the mid fifty degree range. Look shallower, for the males, in the 6 to 12 foot range with jigs and shiner minnows. The females have had a little time to recover and should also be in a great eating mood. Look a bit deeper, in the 10 to 20 foot range. Rigs and shiners or leeches should turn some of these fish this coming weekend.

Area smaller lakes have had some crappie action going already, which is always fun. If you get your walleyes and are looking for something different, give the crappies some attention for some great action.

May is one of the very best months to see great walleye fishing on Lake Winnie. If you haven't fished this lake in May, it's definately worth it to have this experience.

We still have cabin and motel room space available in May and June. Give us a call if you are interested in booking.

See you on the lake! Happy Mothers' Day!
