Jig and a minnow has remained the most favorable presentation, remaining in 10-14' of water. North shore between Pigeon and Farley Creek has been popular targeted area.
Anticipating a fabulous, upcoming holiday weekend on Lake Winnie!! Fishermen have been working the 10-12' break lines, with a jig and a shiner.
Pleasant temperatures and mild winds this week have been favorable for fishing. Hitting the shorelines has been the trick. 10-14' of water, using fatheads or shiners.
Frigid Temperatures and gusty NW winds made it difficult to fish the main lake. Many of our guests hit Big Cutfoot or hovered the north shore of Winnie. Fishing with a jig and shiner in about 14' of water. Water temps are at about 50 degrees.
