Summer Fishing

March 12, 2015

 The Perch bite has been great.  We are seeing most groups filling out with 9 to 12 inch perch from 12 to 30 feet of water.  With the warmer weather the ice and landings are starting to break down some.  We are still driving out for now. I think we will be able to drive out this weekend but you may want to bring your wheeler.

The wind yesterday pushed up the pressure ridge.  We established a new crossing this morning using our bridge.     We are again able to access the main lake from Trapper's Drive.    

Perch fishing has been good.  See you on the lake!

The perch bite on Winnie is getting better toward the west side. Look to the Snag Hole area to the river mouth. 12 to 30 feet of water is best. The Sugar Island area north to the Raven Rocks is good. The changing weather is making them move from the 8 to 12 foot out to the 12 to 20 foot. Sometimes, in the same day.

 Perch are going strong! Right now, there are many areas on the lake to catch good perch, as well. The west side is going strong from Snag Hole around the Horn to River Bar. Look for perch in 16 to 28 feet of water, for best action. Also, check the main lake bars: Bena through Long Bar. Center Bar is also going strong. 16 to 25 feet has been the best in most locations. The Humps are on and off, as the fish move.

The northern pike action is still crazy hot! Bigger minnows - suckers or shiners - are working toward the tops of the structures 1 to 4 feet off the bottom. Another pattern that is working well in the deeper areas is 2 to 6 feet down from the surface - believe it or not. These pike are eating perch that have been put back but wont go back down. These pike are flipping around, just under the ice sheet.

Also, the tulibee are cruising high off the bottom any where from 5 to ten feet under the ice sheet.

Walleye action is still spotty with the best time to be just before dark til about 8 pm.

Regulation change for Winnie, going to 18-23 inch protected slot, with one over 23 and a possession limit of 6 is now official.  It will be in place beginning on the walleye opener in May.

There is about 24" of good on most of the lake now.  The perch and northern bite is still excellant.  We have roads out across the Ice heave's and a road out to sugar bar. 

December 19,2014

15 to 17 inches of good ice on most of the lake now.   The perch and northern bit has been very good.  We are also seeing a good walleye bit just at sunset.  Our guests that are spearing are bringing in some nice pike.  Have a Merry Christmas and     Happy new year                        We look forward to seeing you all in 2015.

10 to 11 inches of good ice this morning out of trappers drive.  We do have a ice heave out by River Bar as usual.  There is also a 6 to 8 inch crack part way out to River Bar that opened up yesterday.  We plan to get our angling houses out ths week.  Perch and Pike fishing has been good.   

November 24 2014


There is 5 to 7 inches of good ice out of Trappers and in front of the campground.  Should be enought Ice for a 4 wheeler. Shold be a great year for spearing and ice fishing.

I will be setting up our spear houses on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.
