winona bite

Recommended Posts

What's been biting in Winona lately? I'm going to be down there for the holiday weekend and want to get out more than a few times. Was thinking of trying Lake Winona for some bass but also would like to find some walleyes, northerns and catfish on the river. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I was at the airport lake this morning, with little luck for bass! caught a few in the lilly pads, using frogs. But there was alot of boats out there! A guy said they are catching crappies on minnows there. Haven't tried for any cats or eye's lately. But guys were getting walleyes on leeches earlier! Smallies should be on the rocks too! Good luck.

We went out this morning looking for some cats on the river. We put in down at the east end boat harbor. We were the 2nd boat there when we put in at 5:45 when we left at 10 there were about 10 trailers there. No luck for cats, which is what we were after. I did manage to hook a 1 lb bass and a 5 lb northern on a topwater frog bait.

Any tips for finding some cats? We were using chicken livers in areas that had produced in years past and we never even had a bite.

I talked to a few guys a few weeks ago and they were using cut bait. Not really sure, I like fishing bass so I haven't fished for cats lately. Going out this morning again, on the river. Hopefully with better results than yesterday! Lookin for big bucket mouths! Did you happen to see the winona paper last sunday? in the outdoor section a guy caught a 41 inch mud cat out of lake winona! Monster!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
