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

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
