Lake Winnibigoshish

7 posts in this topic

I am heading up to Winni Wednesday and wondering if anyone has heard if the Muskies are moving or not and I am also looking for some help with the lake. I am staying at Nodak Resort and after looking at the map of the lake it does not look like it has and real breaks close to shore Like Leech or Cass that I am used to fishing. Any advice or tips would be appreciated!

Fish the breaks not close to shore?

I suppose I could try that but I am wondering if it would be like looking for a needle in a hay stack with how much water is between the break and shore. I have been looking for cabbage beds but it does not look like there are many in the lake from the maps I have.

There's alot of good cabbage beds, but they're mostly in Cut Foot. As far as the big lake goes, I'd start just off tamarack point, towards the river. There's a HUGE bed there, it goes all the way from Tamarack to the dam. Most people that I talk to that target muskies and pike stay in Cut Foot. Remember, though, the state record 'ski was caught by trolling a daredevil off High Banks just off the light weededge there, I think about 9 fow.

I got back yesterday and I never seen a Musky the whole trip. I did catch some Pike and Walleyes but No ski's not even a follow. The weed beds that I did find looked way behind from the late spring we had. Thanks again for the help!
