glenn,

fished winni on friday out of highbanks. we went out to about 30 fow and did decent. Spent about 3 hrs on the lake and kept 10 nice size perch. could have kept a couple more but was looking at just keeping the nicer ones. Did not get into water any shallower than 20'.Most of our success was in 28-31'. Travel on the lake was good. You can get around everywhere with a 4x4. Highbanks also had a really nice road.

With the warmer weather you guys are starting to get i would think the fish would be in shallower this weekend. I would not start deep this next weekend. I would fish shallow and work out deep. Just my two cents

Here's the latest...weekend temperatures were ranging in the low 50's. The snow cover on the lake is melting quickly. The initial 1/4 mile on our road is wet and sloppy, but past that it is clear. Many successful groups were coming in from Perch Bar. Hitting it either right on top of the bar in 21 fow or directly at the bottom of the break in 30 fow (nothing going on the break itself). We'll give you a copy of the map for our roads at the time that you check in to the lodge. See ya this weekend!!

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
