Lake Winnie Fishing Report for August 28, 2013

Hello, from Big Winnie!

The walleye bite is as hot as the weather right now!!!

It's as good, if not better, than anything we have seen this year, so far. The main lake bar tops are going very strong with spinner and crawlers in the 12 to 15 foot depths range. Look to Center, Moses, Snag Hole on the west side for solid walleye action. Look to the Saddle out to Red hook and Moxey on the east side. When the wind blows a bit, the weed bite in 5 to 8 feet of water is going strong, also, with spinner or a jig and minnow or half of a crawler. Bowans Flats, at the weed edge, is another area very worthy of a visit.

The Lake Winnie perch bite is a bit spotty this week, but most of the bigger perch coming in have been from the main lake bar tops. The north shore is doing well trolling smaller cranks for walleye just outside the weeds, and bigger cranks fast over weed tops for some big pike. Run from Big Stoney to Farley creek. Minnow dunking is doing well for larger pike in the weed beds, also. Sunfish are going well on most area lakes early and late in the day, small jigs under a bobber, 2 to 3 feet down in 5 to 7 feet of water has been working well.

The fishing is great, come on out and join us!
