The cold weather definitely firmed things up on Big Winnie and several of the area lakes. Ice thickness has increased and the there are several area accessible by plowed roads in many areas of the big lake. Highbanks Resort, McArdle's, Nodak's, and The Pines Resort on the N/E of Winnie have been maintaining roads, providing access to the lake. The fishing has been okay this last week, and the perch bite seems to be the most consistent. Small spoons like the Forage Minnow and 2-3 wax worms are having the best success. The rock humps located about one mile off the North Shore have been pretty good of late, with the edges in 20-25 feet being the best. There have been some bonus walleyes available at last light, but for the most part they have been scattered. The crappie fishing in Big Cutfoot has been slow, but with warmer weather coming the bite should improve. Small baits like Hornets and small Jiggle bugs with a waxie or 2-3 euro larvae seem to be working better than minnows. Go as light as possible and keep a watchful eye on your electronics. Don't forget to attend up coming sport shows in your area and contact me at http://www.mnfishingpros.com to inquire about guide trips for the 2008 season.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
