Heading up to Winnie this weekend. Looking for some updated reports on walleyes and perch. Is the trip over to ravens worth it? Thanks Balsa

It's always worth it if you can get there. There's a lot of other places to reel them in.

The best means of transportation to Raven's is a snowmobile. If you can find 32' of water, there will be jumbo's waiting. Ice conditions in that area are 10-18" of ice with 6-8" of slush and snow drifted on top of all that. The area has been untapped since mobility has been limited. Grab your GPS and stop by the lodge and I can point out the spot on the map. If a snowmobile isn't available other spots to try would be out front in 15-18' of water between us and the Birches or you could hit Perch Bar in 22 fow. Late afternoon - early dusk has been the best for the eyes. Relatively consistent bite throughout the day on the perch with some sorting out of smaller ones amongst the jumbos.

I haven't had much for spearing reports since December. Do you usually hit the Third River area or Bowen's Flats??
