I fished Straight Lake a couple winters ago and just caught, throw backs. I have a friend that has a cabin there and says he does petty fair in the summer.

I haven't fished it since early Nov. It was good then. I was hoping to get out this winter but been too busy.

GF has a cabin up on this lake, When we've gone out in 2007, which was 3 occasions we were able to catch 30 large(7-8") gils / sunfish each time. This was during the summer.

We went towards the end of fall and we caught 1 northern 12" long and that was it, the neighbors said the lake was turning over.

I also heard when I spoke w/ my GF's dad his neighbor was able to reel in a 20"~ walleye right by there house.

GL.

Yeah when a lake turns over it is hard to catch those panfish that are in shallow.... kind of neutralizes them, or they head for deeper water. Also 7-8" bluegills are okay size for eating, kinda on the small side on IMO, but congrats on your catches.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
