I think anytime you are targeting larger pike you need to go with a traditional red and white, it has got some decent ones with that decoy.

Believe it or not, i have never speared on winnie, but from the guys that i talk to all the time about it, say that red/white or orange have been the best colors for them up there. Again, it all has to do with the spot of the lake on where you set up, but from the stories that i have heard, it dont take much to spear monsters up there.

I Have fished winnie for over 50 years, the best decoy I have used is a red and white about 9 or 10 ins. long, 2nd best, a perch decoy about 7 ins. long, this is not a cheap plastic one. 3rd best plastic northern, either the 5 in. or the 9 in, a 10 in copper , made out of real copper, decoy, and last a live sucker about 8 - 10 in. long. those are my choices and I;m sticking to them. wink.gif

My group of seven just got back from Winnie. We fished Friday-Sunday. We saw a lot of fish mostly small but did manage to pull a 32" and a couple right in that ball park. I would say the average house had ten fish a day come into the hole. Pretty good luck. and the clarity was better than the past few years.

The red and white is home made, so are the copper and perch.

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?
