Hope everyone has new line on the reels and the boat is ready. I have one rod set up with a glow watermelon 1/8oz fire-ball and another one set up with the NEW silver shiner lip-stick jig. This is the hottest new soft plastic jig on the planet! It features a "stand-up" jig head and lifelike "Holographic" Baitfish-Image tube-tail body that imitates a minnow feeding along the bottom with its head down and tail up!

After the cold front we had the water temp is coming back up. I look for the temp to be in the high 40s to low 50s by the opener.

Look for the Walleye along the north shore close to points or any water inlet in 6’ to 8’ of water.

We do have a slot on Winnie it is 17” to 26” goes back and you can keep 1 over 26” I do look for a large amount of 14” to 16” of Walleye this year to catch.

See you on the water.

The change was made, sorry. Was talking about some other lakes and the slots and what I would like to see on Winnie for the slot. Mistake made on my end.

I wasn't being critical just didn't want to get caught with a 17.5".It sure does seem like alot of those 'eyes are reaching just past that 17" mark would be nice to fry a couple of those.

Magnum i dont think you'll have too worry about putting back 17 1/4" fish because the lake is going too be full of 15-16" fish, more than enough too keep and fry up.

I have been going to Winnie for opener for many years but this will be my first with a marine band radio in the boat. What station are all you guys on for opener?

I have fished Winni in the past and have always put in on the Southwest landing, but this year I only have a 16 foot boat and want to fish the north side. I don't want to cross the whole lake and am looking for the nearest place to launch. I will pay a resort fee too. Is there an access at the campground? Thanks fellas

Public access' on Eagle Nest road, also right off 46, they'll take you into Cut Foot and you can access Winni through the Gap.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
