The fronts seem to be creating havoc with the angling on Big Winnie and most of the lakes in the area. It's been tough and getting around, other than on plowed roads has also been a little difficult. The high winds and cold temperatures have kept many fisherman off the lakes. Big Winnie has still been kicking out a few perch for those who are braving the elements to get after them Forage Minnow Spoons and gold Swedish Pimples have worked the best and the perch seem to be favoring the 26-30 foot depths, which should improve as Spring approaches. A few anglers are reporting mixed results on northern pike and there doesn't seem to be a preferred depth. There have been pike taken in 10 feet around old weed beds and pike caught on tip-ups in 25 to 30 feet. I think when the weather gets a little more stable things will improve. Remember that the season comes to an end on February 24th for walleyes, pike, and bass, until the openers in the Spring. There have been very few anglers on Big Cutfoot for crappies and gills and again as soon as the weather is a little more consistent, things will improve. In the next two months the sport shows will be coming to nearly everyone's community in Minnesota. Stop in and see what's new in the fishing equipment, boating and outdoor seminars that are always informative. With Winter winding down it's a great place to start thinking about the up coming 2008 fishing season.

Any thoughts on where to be this weekend for perch/eye/pike action? The friends I have coming of from the twin cities don't care what they catch, they just want action \:\)

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
