Lost a blue soft sided rod case with rods inside this past Mon (3/15) somewhere btwn. Ravens Point & Nodak Resort on the south shore. Sentimental value so would appreciate anyone that may have found them to contact me... reward offered.

As for a fishing report, we fished Sat 13th - Tues 16th. Had to work for them and move a lot and punch a lot of holes. Females don’t seem to be up on the sand yet, so had to find bigger fish, mostly males, in 22-25 ft if water.  Sand was producing fish, but mostly under 9”. Weather seemed to be key for the bite, when sun came out, they turned on. Also early am and later afternoon bite was the best overall.  Ice was in good condition overall, but lots of pressure points developing with the warm days and cold nights, so recommend UTV or ATV travel over trucks. Stay safe and tight lines. Appreciate anyone who may have found my rods to reach out to me. Thanks

Fished a few days recently and came away with a pair of two man possession limits on perch. We had to punch a lot of holes to find them, but once we did, they bit well in flurries. Best fishing was in 28-30’ of water off steep breaks. Walleye fishing has been phenomenal all winter on any structure. Tons of small fish, but enough keepers to put in the fryer also. The future looks really bright, as we are finding many different year classes of both perch and walleye

Fished afternoon of Feb. 4 through Saturday, Feb. 6.   Worst perch production in my history, with 5 hitting.  We were in 3 different fish houses from High Banks.   Friend caught 10 walleyes, 3 of which were big enough to keep, all at 4 p.m. or later.   He had 18 perch.   In 2 mornings, we caught one perch and 2 rusty crayfish.  Best responses to minnow on blood red hook and gold Swedish Pimple with minnow head(s).

I would stop at a resort and get a report before you head out. We stop at the pines and they always help us find the fish. It doesn't seem like meny people use this site in Minnesota. I am also heading up next week.

Hello All - heading to Winni for the first time on hard water, I fish there often other times of the year.  Bringing 2 people from Alabama who have never ice fished before.  Would you folks please chime in and let me know the best lake areas (walleye mostly) lure colors/type etc. etc.  I want this trip to be memorable for my buddies but I desperately need help from any and all Winni hard water warriors.Thanks for the Intel.

Was up here at the lake staying at a resort near the dam for the first week of June. My conditions I reported were about average for the week. Our group of guys target walleyes but keeping decent sized Northern Pike if caught.


During the day is quite slow. Finding where the walleyes are is the most difficult part. With the new slot being 18"-23" during the day is when we caught the most in that slot with the average being 21" This lake however treated us well in the evening into the night ( the best night being 18 walleyes with 4 guys. ) Jig and minnow ( shiner ) still working the best. Fished heavily in the bay between Tamarack Point and the dam and caught them from anywhere in 10' to 16' of water. Went to Ravens one day and did ok. Caught 3-4 keepers and drifting twords shore starting in 12' and caught one in as shallow as 6'

Northern now also have a slot of 22"-26" and caught A TON in that slot size. And just about anywhere we fished. One our guys caught a nice 26 1/2" that we ended up keeping. If they are your targeted species finding the heavy weed beds and fishing them should be no issue.

We don't fish for them but perch are there. A lot of them being no bigger then 9". Maybe one or two being bigger. But as far as a " jumbo " which the lake is known for to me is no longer existent. 

Rock Bass..... Holy cow.... there big, fat. Fun to catch but can be a nuisance when trying to fish for other species. Kept two to see what there filets looked like but both had worms already.
