Turnover Fishing Report

I am heading up to Winni/cut foot next week for some fishing and duck hunting. Anybody know if the lake has turned over yet and/or current water temps? thanks for any information,

Dave

It was 56.9 on sat. out by Tamarack Pt. Released a 20 and the wife released a 23 1/2 when it clouded up. Then the sun came out and shut down everything. Spent the next 3 hours catching small perch so I left and no sooner got back to the cabin it clouded back up but by then I was cutting the grass.Lots of ducks were flying around and some shooting off the pt.

fished 6 hours today. caught 15 walters and 7 billion perch. Nothing fast and furious. Just steady goes it. Mixture of chubs, rainbows, and shiners from River Rat Bait. They sure offer up a healthy minnow count. Didn't seem to matter on minnow type as all 3 kinds produced. Threw back 3 too big. One 20". Predominantly South wind.

Stayed in Cut Foot - due to wind.

Thanks for the information. Does anyone know what temp Winni usually turns over at? I'm hoping the fish are going next week. I'll take walleyes over ducks any day. thanks again,

Dave

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
