Are the fish starting to hit in Cut Foot yet? How about the sunnies and crappies, are they hitting anywhere on Winnie?

Thanks in advance!!

Hey Jason are we talking jigs and shiners/chubs right now at Highbanks and weedlines, or are they running other baits?

The best reports this weekend have been coming from out in front of us and to the south down to the Birches access in 6 fow using a 5' snell with a crawler or fathead. We've had a number of groups with limits and nice shorelunches!

That shallow? I figured they'd still be out in their deeper haunts. Do you know if they're getting any bigger -5-8lbs- fish in the shallows or is it mostly slot-size fish?

Winnie walleyes are always more shallow than they are suppose too be.

Oxygen depletion in the deeper water usually occurs sometime in August. They will head towards the weeds in shallower water. Great thing is, the warmer water makes 'em more aggressive. It's not only Winnie. We were up at Vermillion this past weekend, and found them in 3 to 5 feet as well.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
