Lake Winnie Fishing Report for June 6, 2016

The walleye bite on Lake Winnie is very good right now with fish starting to head into their summer patterns. The main lake structures are starting to load up with walleyes. Shorebreaks are still producing, as well. Jigs and minnows on the shorelines are working well. Rigs and leeches, or crawlers are working out in deeper water. The water temps are in the low 60-degree range and this has fish very active. Most areas have some weed beds set up that are holding walleyes along the shoreline.

Sugar, Horseshoe and Big Musky on Bena, have all been good for walleyes. The Humps, north of Third River Bar, are starting to go, also.

The perch action is starting to pick up as the spawn is down and they are now "on the feed." "Sorting" through small and larger perch is the norm, with plenty of action. Weeds or rock areas have been the best for good perch schools. Look in 5 to 8 feet of water.

Pike are HOT right now - everywhere!

Crappie are about done with their spawn. Sunnies are on their beds now. The sunfish bite is good early or later in the day.

Good fishing!
