Jason,

Thanks, as always, for your help. This will be our 10th annual Memorial Day trip to the Winni area. Very excited.

I have a question for you Jason,

Are they catching any at the dam? or how about at the mouth of little winni?

Thanks

Steve

I've had a number of our groups fishing on the opposite side of the dam (no slot size requirement there on the walleyes). Nice fish being caught just fishing from the shoreline.

Water levels were around 8' all the way to little Winnie. Just be careful near the shores. We did pretty well all the way down.

I've done really well right under the dam several times, but the conditions have to be just right. My old man tells me stories about some of the fishing he use to have "back in the day", well, not that long ago, he's only in his 50's.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
