I'm heading to Lake Winnie this coming weekend and looking for any friendly advice as to where to fish, what to use, and the water depth. Mainly going for Perch, but would love advice on any Walleye information as well on Lake Winnie.
GPS coordinates would be helpful and any extra hints so I can out fish my high school buddies would go a long way in bragging rights for the year.
We are staying at McArdle's Resort on the west side near the Mississippi entrance from Thursday till Sunday morning, but I will be coming up on Wed. and can go anywhere - I have went out of Nodak's before.
LAKE WINNIBIGOSHISH The perch bite is on and off depending on the day. Fish move up and down on main lake bars and north end humps in 21 to 30 feet of water. Cloud cover triggers a better bite in these locations. There's some shallow perch activity off Mallard Point and Raven's Point in 12 to 15 feet of water, and an evening walleye bite in 16 to 18 feet of water on the flats out from Highbanks. Northern pike remain an easy catch with tip-ups and minnows on the main lake bars.
I also agree with Ted, you are close to the sugar bar and there is fish there as well. on the east end. check out Ravens also Moses bar. we did well using the Northland Forage minnow with a whole minnow in perch. Good Luck let us know how you did.
Thank You everyone for the advice. I really appreciate it and will let you guys know how I did - hopefully have some pictures to share.
I will also share GPS coordinates with you if I find a good spot. I have a Garmin GPSMAP 76CS and have bought the Lake Maps with Hot Spots and also the other software (can't remember the exact name Lake Masters?) which contains the higher detail for selected lakes and searched Winnie over and marked a few spots that according to the structure of the spot, looks inviting.
I also have purchased Structure on a String (S.O.S.) from Ladrege.com and will give that a try - they claim it works and I will let you know my success with them.
Thanks again for all the advice.

People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
