Few June Questions 16-23

7 posts in this topic

First off want to say hi this site is very good ive been reading a lot of the old posts good way to get some information. I was just wondering what your guys favorite lure choices are for this time of year so i can start loading up the tackel box. We'll be fishing walleyes first, then go after some snakes. Last time i was at Winne i still used a Snoopy pole but remember catching huge panfish. Staying at Williams Narrows if you want to include your favorite spots on the water for this time of year i wont mind wink.gif I was also wondering how hard is it to find the mid lake humps?

you could be rigging the humps and bars or jigging them with a shiners if there is some left or there will be some fish at the emerging weeds but I htink your best bet will be minnows or leeches out deep

Lots depends on the weather and water temps, if there still hitting jigs try these along the weed edges

Rainbow, Parrot, Bubblegum, Watermelon, and Parakeet all work. Day to day they may prefer one over the other so carry some of each with you if one dosen't do the trick switch colors

Hawkeye I will be at Williams Narrows (cabin #4) the previous week. They will have a guide speak on Sunday night this is very valueable info. If you want to shoot me an e-mail I will give you a # I can be reached at. After a week I should be able to help you out.

I'm staying at the Winnie Dam Federal campground on June 14th to the 16th. I haven't fished Winnie since I was about 10 years old, so I'm really looking forward to it.

mostly a snell and maybe a bead snell lengths vary depending on the day

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
