Hey Batter and Fever- I only fish Winnie a couple times a year-but usually always try to fish right around the corner to the right while coming out of plug hat landing.in about 12 ft with leeches we always seem to catch those wallys in June.We always seem to be alone too. well maybe not now!-Ha.

Oh that was you Beerbatter?-we kept saying , I wonder if that guy knows were catching all these fish! Ha! It seems like you're alone when you're not bumping into 25 other boats like up towards Tamarack point. You can always find a "nice honeyhole" on Winnie. How much of a lead do you usually have between sinker and hook? I've tried up to 7 ft. last few times(regardless of wind) and had great success,while boatmates didnt, at 3 ft. Of course,jigging is good too. Good Tuggin!!

I was using a 1/4 oz jig and a 3/8 oz fireball with either a fathead or shiner. My uncle had some success with a shadrap.

Just left Winnie today ..had to come home early cause of a family emergency.
Had a so so week. First few days starting Saturdy found us on The dishes working the 7 to 10 ft depths. Most of our fish come from 9 to 10 ft. Tuesday found us wandering elsewhere. We tryed Tamarack Point with limited success...we did watch a boat from Indiana catch Walleye left and right and not check one fish for length! We watched for aprox. 45 minutes as these two old dudes pulled in at least 8 fish and I KNOW some were over the slot. Wed we headed for Mallard and did pretty good. The wife and I threw back several over the slot and got a few keepers as well. On our way back to Cutfoot we stopped at the rock piles on the north end and made a few passes and watched one boat catch a nice wally in the 26" range it was a nice fish that got thrown back...YES!
Thursday fished Cutfoot filled the 3 empty walleye spaces avalable in the freezer, packed up after a phone call and came home. All our fish were caught on Green fire ball or Glow jigs and shiners. no hits on Leeches or crawlers

Trux,
It looks like you had a good trip. Why is it that many times out of towners(Indiana) confirm what we already know? I wonder many limits of fish they'll be taking home? Did you do any lindy rigging or did you strictly fish jigs? Were there any reports of fish being caught on leeches?

Wallter: I did lindy rig Rebel bar and an unamed one to the south west of rebel lay a email addy and I can give you some gps data
Got some hits on leeches but nothing on crawlers. Weather was rather cold begining of the week but warmed considerably by wed. I was hoping to get some action on the bars too but it wasn't in the cards so stuck pretty much to Jigs and shiners. That was a rather expensive venture it self at 4.50 a dozen for shiners but we had a good time

And By the Way I HOPE THOSE OLD DUDES GET CHECKED!! If we all have to abide by the rules so should our out of state visitors! They sure would bum out if the DNR took there nice shiny Indiana licensed boat and auctioned it off to one of us less fortunate fisherpersons!

Trux,
I would like those GPS spots., but am a rookie on the computer and can't fugure out how to e-mail you directly. Any help would be great. I understand that you probably don't want everyone to have your e-mail. Your e-mail address does not show up on your profile.

By the way have you ever noticed how much the out of town crowd likes to clean perch?
WOW!!!

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
