Lake Winnie Fishing Report for June 5, 2013

Hello, from Big Winnie. The walleye bite continues to be good and they're very much into shiners. Jigs and shiners worked from 4 to 9 feet of water has been the ticket for walleye fishermen. Successful jig colors have been glows on cloudy days and gold or silver on sunny days. Move along at 1 mph to locate fish, but double-back through them till the bite slows, then move on again to new water. Big walleye females are being caught on the main lake bars now. This will get better as the next few weeks pass and the water temps continue to evolve. Water temps from the upper 50s to the low 60 degree range now. The weeds on the west side are starting to peak above the water's surface.

The perch fishing remains good, also, along with the walleye. They are very much together.

Pike fishermen are catching fish trolling crankbaits in the 5 to 12 foot range, with good numbers of fish in the 4 to 8 lb range.

Crappies are biting on several smaller lakes in the area. Sunfish are starting to go to making beds, they should be good in a week or so if we warm up a bit more.

See you on the lake!
