Walleyes

5 posts in this topic

We are coming up Friday night and are unsure whether we should stop at Winnie for the night or keep going to Red. We want to make the best of our day and a half of fishing for the Eyes. Have never been on Winnie.

Keep going for sure... you have a way better chance of getting good fishing on red, especially if you have never been on winny!

I've spent allot of time on Winnie. If you don't know the lake Red is your best bet for constant walleye bite. Winnie is better am and pm on the top edge of the bars. Red it doesn't seen to matter where you set up you always seen to catch some walleye's

Good Luck.

Winni can be brutal, if you are going to hit Winni hire a guide to learn the ropes first. Winni is one of those lakes that fish never play by the rules and the structure looks simple but it is not.

If you are looking for Winni guides let me know, I now some good guides that way.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
