fishing report from high banks resort

Recommended Posts


We had a strong bite today! The Jumbos are remaining on the west shore between Zoomers and Mallard in 22-25' of water. Many groups came in with their limits. Walleyes are stayin' pretty consistent out on Perch Bar in 21-24 feet. Best bite time for the perch is mid-morning and late afternoon, just before dusk for the walleyes. Fatheads continue to be the choice bait. Ice is ranging from 17-22" with minimal snow cover.

Thanks for the report Jason. Is a person able to travel by ATV, or is there to much snow cover?

we are thinking about going to Winnie at the end of Feb. I have never been there in the winter. Are there roads plowed to all the different sand bars and hot spots on the lake?

The lake has very little snow as of monday. There are roads plowed out the south and east sides of the lake to wherever you need to go. The pressure ridge is tricky so be careful! I thought the size was down a bit this year. The c.o. told us we had the better qaulity fish on sunday. We fished the west side in 25 to 30 fow. Slow bite, we had our best luck on whole fatheads and plain hook. Bigger minnows caught the bigger fish. Good luck to all. Flip

My wife, brother and I will be up on Friday. Could you tell me where the heaves are and can I get from highbanks to Ravens Point? Can we get around most of them? I also am interested in the Walleye bite considering my wife and I are Pros in the MWC & MWS circuits. I also fish the PWT & FLW. Any info would be greatly appreciated. See you at the Bank!

Hey guys----just wondering where Perch bar is located on winnie-----I have the lakemaster program and i can't find it on there---is it known by another name?

Hey Jeff,

That is a good question. These coordinates should put you on top of it in about 20 feet of water. N47 degrees 28.643' and W94 degrees 08.876'

This is according to the waypoint table on the ReelBottom map that I have. I have seen it in different locations on other maps, but my map and the LakeMaster maps have always been trustworthy, so that is what I go with.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
