Lake Winnie Fishing Report for August 22, 2013

The Big Winnie walleye bite is still going strong! Several flats are going well, trolled with plain hook or spinners tipped with crawlers or leeches. Look to Center Bar west and north of the point in 12 to 14 feet of water. The Horseshoe Bar, on the north side west to north of Moses also is producing good walleyes. Shore drops on the east side from 8 to 11 feet have been good. The north shore from Stoney Point east to Farley Creek, also is hot in the deeper weeds, from 8 to 12 feet deep.

Perch are scattered in with the walleye in all locations. If you want to target them over walleye schools, switch baits to minnows.

Pike are getting active on some of the deeper structures now. Troll bigger cranks in perch or firetiger patterns, quickly in the 14 to 20 foot depth range. Several good pike this week in the 10 lb range.

Time to go fishing!
