I will be making my first trip ever to Winni around July 14. By the looks of things, mid lake structure will be key. I got a couple of questions and need some info.

1. I will be coming from GR. What launch (public) will be the best to use and get out on the main lake.

2. Can I get a little idea about what structure is out there?

3. What is the slot limit. Is there one?

Thanks in advance

1. I would get a map first and look at several landing sites. so you can play the wind...doesn't take much wind to make huge waves we found out on our trip

2. sand bars and the mid lake humps was where we did our best last week... Bena Bar and Joes hump were good also the humps just a little to the NE of Joes Hump were good...GPS will help out alot here..and getting a map with gps coord...

3. walleye slot is 17-26 released right away and we caught more slot fish then keepers and o yeah 1 over 26 for a trophy

....we did best with red hooks with a colored bead..my favorite was a bright green bead..6-7ft snell

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
