Lake Winnie Ice Fishing Report for February 21, 2013

Big Winnie pike fishing remains ON FIRE! Big suckers or shiners on tip-ups with the baits 2 to 5 feet off the bottom have been the successful method. Fish the tops of the main lake bars or the shore-drop tops for them. Pike fishermen and women have seen amazing success. Bring your tip-ups and give this amazing pike opportunity a try.

Perch fishing is fair with decent numbers of perch being caught. You can sort your twenty out, though, as there are a mix of small, medium and large being caught. The west side has some perch going in the Sugar Island area, ten to twelve feet depths. The south shore has some perch going on Snag Hole. East and north from Moxey up to the High Banks area are seeing good perch.

Walleye are being caught early and late in the day for about one hour - that's the window. It's a short bite window, but be ready at prime time you will get some walleyes. Jigging spoons and minnow heads fished next to a plain hook or live minnow has been working best.

Roads are plowed around the lake. Check into where you access to get a road map and directions.
