Coming up to Winnie June 16th, staying at 4 Seasons. What will be my best options for "eyes"? Also, is there any crappie hot spots on Winnie?

Awesome! Hopefully the Hatch won't be in force or just after a Hatch... frown.gif

If ya have a good boat that can handle some waves if they come up, I'd hit the string of Bena/Long/Muskie/Eelpout Bars etc.

I would also hit the Humps in the Northwest section of Winnie.

Use a Leech or maybe a Crawler.

Crappies: Eh - they roam around in Winnie - saw big schools of 2-4 Lb'ers (Yes) while Spearing, but good luck targeting them. Maybe around Sugar or Ravens...

Hope that helps...

Coming up the week of June 4th , my guess is they will be on the bars by then also ?? or will that be early enough have some fish still in shallow ..... also with all the talk of dry weather effecting some of the other lakes , I would guess Winni is somewhat normal for water level ?? , Thanks , Dan

I'll be up June 4-6 also...

Yes, they will be on the bars, but some will be in the 7-9' range also.

Good luck!

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
