Winnie trophys?

6 posts in this topic

I have been fishing Winnie for many years and have never seen a true trophy eye come out. Opening this year I boated one at 25. Why is it that you don't come across the 28+ on Winnie like you do on Mille Lacs?confused.gif What is the biggest eye caught this year?

My biggest this year was 3 days ago when I caught & released a 26.5" Walleye.

3 Years ago I caught & released a 31.5" Walleye on Winnie! smile.gif

They're in there......

My dad's been fishing Winni about 10 times a year for 40 years now, and his biggest is about 7 1/2 lbs. He usually fishes the opener bite mostly and just the last few years has he gotten in on the bar bite, but he's still never beat that. And believe me, he catches walleyes on Winni better than anyone I know! Well, at least he does well on #s.

Can you say Gill Nets.

The East side in the spring and summer.

The North and West sides in the Fall.

The state forest launch, by Highbanks, is a favorite spot to go out of from now until fall.

Go up on shore on Raven's, in the fall and your nose will tell you where the dumped (trash fish) are.

I heard someone got their prop in a net, opening weekend, just South of Highbanks.

      Sorry, been offline for a while. Yes you can STILL drive out there if you're brave. I've seen people do it last night and they are probably still driving out there today. I'm going to go check in a bit, fishing has been pretty stellar as of late.

      2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast. On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase. Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
