Lake Winni/Cut Foot Sioux Help

Recommended Posts

mikeymike

Hello All, I am from Southern, MN (Mankato) coming up for vacation staying at Bowen lodge with family. I'm bringing my boat, but have never fished either lake. I'm not looking for "honey holes" but hoping to at least put my kids and their cousins on some pannies or eyes or whatever bites. Size is irrelevant, as long as something bites it creates some great memories for them!

any help is MUCH appreciated!

Try the weedlines in Big Cutfoot for panfish and the north and west shores of Big Winnie in 10-15 feet should produce walleyes and northerns for you.

I like bottom bouncers and spinners w/ crawlers this time of year, but slip sinkers and spinners will work too. Trolling crankbaits will put some northerns and walleyes in the boat.

There is a very good evening bite trolling shad raps in 9-12 FOW. Best presentation is a #4-5 firetiger shad rap trolled at 2-2.5 MPH. Look to Stony point and Ravens area you will catch fish. Lots of eater walleyes and plenty of pike. In fact you may want to tie on a light leader or it can get rather spendy....the pike will tear you up. Great fun and easy fishing!!! Good Luck

Thank you both very much! Those big lakes can be intimidating in the sense you just have no clue where to start except for what I see on my SI. Nice to have some starting points. Will let you know how we do next weekend!

Thanks again!

get in cutfoot and little cutfoot the crappies are starting to go deep look for them on your graph and drop a jig with a minnow down to them.
