Lake Winnie Fishing Report for October 15, 2014

Hello, from Big Winnie! There are many things to do right now - fun time of the year! Walleye bite is ok right now, with jigs and minnows from the weed-edge at 8 feet out to 12 feet of water. Move along til a fish is caught, then double back, there is more than one walleye there, for certain. Play the wind! Going with the wind is better right now.

Perch are in the weed beds, also, in 6 to 11 feet of water.

Some crappie are still going in Cutfoot, though they are moving deeper.

Grouse hunting is in full swing now, as 50 percent of the leaves have come down now. It is not uncommon to flush a dozen a day.

Deer hunters are in the woods also scoping out spots along with the bow hunters.

Local ducks took off with the cold snap. A few bluebills and goldeneye are making there way down, but our weather is mild at this time. Look for the duck hunting to get better as fall progresses.

If you'd like to learn about our guided duck hunting trips, please call to the lodge and we'll be happy to inform.

See you on the water or in the woods!
