In Winona for 5 weeks May6th-June8th

1 post in this topic

Hi guys,

I need some help from you. I'm gonna be statying in Winona for 5 weeks for a business trip (Fastenal). I was wondering if you can give some info about fishing in the area. When is the season opening for the different species? Do we need a permit to fish, I'm Canadian so I dont know if the permits are more expensives? What are the best spots around Wino? What are the species we can catch around there? Do you know if they are affordable places to rent a boat? That kind of stuff

I'm actually pretty sad I need to go to Winona at that time of the year because where I'm from (Quebec, Canada) it's the opening season for Lake Trout and Walleye. It's the best time of the year to catch theese species before the water gets to hot.

Thanks for your replies

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
