Lake Winnie Fishing Report for June 21, 2013

Hello, from Big Winnie!

The lake is hot right now for walleye and perch! It's a great time to be up here and on the water. The walleye are being caught in 4 to 8 foot of water for most of the keeper-sized fish with some very large walleyes thrown in to the mix. The main lake bars are starting to produce walleyes along with the shore drops: Moxey on the east side, west side Sugar and Snag, the Highbanks area also from 10 to 24 feet. Mostly catching nice walleyes for photos, with some keepers in your day's catch. Deeper water walleyes are liking crawlers and leeches; while the shallow fish are interested in the jig and shiners. There are plenty of hungry perch to keep you busy while fishing for walleye.

Crappies are on the last of their spawn and should be moving toward summer haunts soon. Sunnies are on beds right now. Be very selective on these fish, please.

The water temps are in the mid sixty range. Today's 80 degree day seems as if summer is on the way.

Time to go fishing and see you on the lake.
