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.
