How's the Winona bite been recently? Has Lake Winona produced anything this year?

I have not fished on Lake Winona lately but have been fishing some other spots in Winona. The past few weeks have been very slow for me. I think this could be because of this cold weather. Anyone else having any luck?

Where is there a good morning bite in Winona? I might try getting out early tomorrow or sunday.

I was on airport lake Sat. morning, just enough going on between the few flags and the bluegills/crappie to keep you interested. Tried it again Sun. afternoon and managed a few bluegills. The panfish are still suspended in 22 to 25 fow. A horizontal presentation seemed to work the best.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably be out there this weekend. Mn City showed me tons of baitfish last night, but not one bite.

Is anyone driving cars or small trucks on the ice at Bartlett Lake, AKA "the airport lake" yet? I am heading up there this weekend, and will post a report of what I find for fishing.

And, could anyone give a report on what the ice is like below the lock and dams at Fountain City, Trempeleau, or Dresbach? I am going to check those out, too, if it is safe to walk on.

I found 13 inches of ice and several full size trucks driving on it. Slow day, 3 perch. 2 10 inchers and a 6 incher. I nearly had a big dogfish. The six incher was floating in the hole, couldn't get back down. I caught it out of deep water. This big dogfish came up through the hole and scared the #2 right out of me. Then he had a hard time getting back down.

I was out at the airport lake Sunday morning--drove my half-ton truck out with no issues. I had no luck with a tip-up, nor did anyone else that I saw. The bluegills were a little picky, but I picked some up before noon, which is when the bite really slowed down. Released two or three that hit 8" or over, kept eight in the 6" to 8" range, and threw back some smaller ones. No crappie or perch.

I found 4" to 8" of ice (depending where you looked) below the lock and dam at Dresbach Sunday evening. A few guys made the walk across the channel to the east side, but I was not one of them. The bite there was slow--one 12" sauger, and a 12" walleye. I didn't see much caught by anyone else.

I planned on going back to both places today, but the weather forecast sounded pretty bad, so I stayed in.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
