Lake Winnie Fishing Report for May 31, 2012

The bite on Lake Winnie is changing as much as the weather, lately. When the wind blows, you get a good shallow bite in the weed beds, as the weeds are now up a foot or so. The pike move in and the walleye go out to the 10 foot area where the shiners are staging, and bite is quite good for a while. Using jigs and shiners in shallow water is the way to go. Bar fishing is starting to pick up. Rigs and minnows, leeches or crawlers are good, depending on their mood (all are working on most fish).

Perch are getting active in the weeds, also, with good numbers being caught.

Pike are going well in the weeds for good numbers, but mostly seeing smaller fish. Deeper off the humps and bars is better for larger pike right now. The South end of Bena Bar has been good. Snag Hole is going, too. The humps on the West side off Ravens Point are going, also.

Water temps dropped a bit, but still in the 60 degree range.

See you on the water!
