Walleye Bite Is On!

Check out this 25 1/2" Lake Winnie Walleye that Susie caught!

Want to catch a big one too? Here is some advice from friends who are currently fishing the lake:

“The lake is cooling down, and the fishing is picking up every day. We fished several parts of the lake including Cut Foot, the fish are on shoreline reefs and weed beds. Our best areas were in 8 to 10 feet of water pulling spinners over the weeds. Didn't matter if we were pulling minnows or crawlers over the weeds behind spinners. Overall it was a great week” - Tim Zwieg
Thanks to lake-link.com for the great pro insight. 

Jigs or spinners with minnows are turning walleyes along the north-shore breaks in 8 to 14 feet. The points along the west side are giving up walleyes in 9 to 15 feet and some fish continue to be caught on the main-lake bars during midday hours. The Williams Narrows area is giving up crappies, perch are being found in 3 to 10 feet, and pike are hitting spoons or minnows on the 6 to 8 foot weedlines.
