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

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
