Lake Winne Fishing Report for June 11, 2014

Hello, from Big Winnie. Walleye are very active several times a day right now. Play the weather for best results. Cloudy, rainy weather is good for a shallow water focus, in the weeds. Sunny days, the main lake bars and humps are producing. Baits, you really need to bring out all varieties. Seems, lately, on sunny days, crawlers will out fish any other bait. Cloudy days, shiners or leeches work better. Play the wind and fish the structure with the wind blowing along it or slightly into it. Weed beds are getting set up around the lake in 5 to 6 and 8 to 10 feet. They have walleye in them.

Perch action has been better in the deep water of the main lake drops as they are also done with the spawn. Look to 15 to 23 feet. Same of the north humps.

Pike are active all around the lake. Ready to bite! Cranks are working well for pike trolled in 7 to 12 feet of water in between weed beds.

Crappie are in spawn and can be caught shallow in the reeds, look to 3 to 5 feet of water. Sugar Lake, Third River and in Cutfoot, to name a few. Sunnies are ahead of spawn but can be caught early and late in the day in the same areas.

See you on the lake!
