Lake Winnie Fishing Report for September 4, 2013

The walleye bite on Winnie is still going very well! A few more weed fish are showing up in shallow water. Jigs and half crawlers or a minnow is working well. Look to 5 to 8 foot of water and play the wind. These weed beds surround the lake and it's not hard to find fish. Bar fishing is still slow with a few larger fish being caught here and there. Evening trollers are taking fish just outside of the weed beds on smaller crankbaits.

Perch fishing has grown spotty as they are on the move. Deeper fish have seemed to move in just a bit. We are finding a few perch in shallow water, but you have to sort out the little guys.

Pike are still crazy, with minnows being best, trolling larger cranks would be the next choice and go fast - 3 to 4 mph.
