Lake Winnie Fishing Report for September 13, 2013

Hello, from Big Winni! The shallow water walleye bite is starting to go well in the weed beds in 5 to 7 feet of water. You can jig for walleyes here with with fatheads. You can also use spinners for walleyes with crawlers or minnows. Move along quickly at about 1 to 2 mph. Once you locate walleyes, circle back go through them till the action lessens, then move on down until you contact fish again.

Pike action is going strong with spoons trolled outside the weeds and trolled quite fast.

Perch are a bit spotty with the weed fish mixed in with the walleyes or on some of the deeper bar drops.

Fall fishing on Lake Winnie is about as good as it gets. If you've never tried it, due to hunting schedules or other hobbies, those who regularly come to Winnie for the fall season have no regrets and consider it to be the best fishing of the year. Feel free to give us a call for cabin availability this fall. You can always mix in some fishing with a little duck hunting (we now offer fully guided waterfowl hunts) or grouse hunting. Several hunting seasons open this weekend!!
