ooo smiley

Hello all, and I hope you don't mind me poking my head in here.

I'm headed up to Williams Narrows in a couple of months, and needless to say, I don't do much Walleye fishing in South Texas.

I was hoping that I might have a little knowledge rubbed into my brain by peeking around and picking up tidbits from you guys.

I started looking here after googling fishing forums. Down here, we have Texasfishingforum.com....pretty good forum full of a bunch of good ol' boys.

So my questions are:

Have any of you fished this area?
Any pointers, tackle wise....basic armory?
What should every walleye angler have in his box?
Hows the largemouth/smallmouth/crappie population?
Do I really just get a small leadhead and a live minnow and fish deep?

And yes, if any of you will be heading down here in the future, you can expect a wealth of information to get you started....may I suggest Lake Amistad in Del Rio, Texas on the boarder of Texas and Mexico.....talk about a trip to remember.....

If you want to start simple and not have to buy alot of tackle the lead head jig with a minnow is unbeatable. You can get 3 for $1 someplaces and minnows are $2.50 a scoop.


Lake Map (Williams Narrows, Lake Winnie)


Lake Survey


Are you refering to the Williams Narrows Resort on Lake Winnibigosh?
This is the info I could find on that area.

Yes, Williams Narrows is on Winnebigoshishishishishi or whatever. I like winnebigosh. smile smiley

Anyways....whatta ya mean 3 for a dollar? the jigheads? Honestly, I'm not a live bait kinda guy, but I've been told it's the way to go. Could really care less what I find, be it Walleye, crappie, smallies, or largemouth.

So is anybody familiar with the water or surrounding areas? We don't even know where the grocery stores are, or eating places, or bars (for that matter)..lol.

What's the terrain like on the bottom of the lakes? Can I just find some grass and start chunking for bass? Offshore humps and c-rigs? How big do the bass get up there?

Sorry for the pounding, guys.....but thanks for the input?

And yes, the Eyes of Texas are upon you. cool smiley

Lake Winnie is mainly known for the walleye. Take a look at the lake survey a few posts up and it will give you an idea of what type of fish are in the lake.

When are you going exactly, if we know when you are going we should be able to give you an idea of where to start looking since tactics and locations change based on time of year and water temps.

Tactics can vary greatly based on personal preference. I like to jig with a minnow or leech for walleye, and yes the Jigs can be found 3 for $1.

Others like to troll either a live bait rig, crankbaits, or pastics.

Its all up to you, I am sure you can make any method work to some extent. I have never fished the lake but what works on one lake generally works on all lakes with maybe some minor tweaks.
