Minnesota Walleye Fishing Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!

Walleye Fishing On Lake Winnie means lunker walleyes.When it comes to walleye fishing in Minnesota, few lakes enjoy the great reputation Lake Winnibigoshish has as one of Minnesota's premier world-class walleye fishing lakes.  Lake Winnie offers great structure and has large numbers of Walleye, Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass, Muskie, Crappie, Perch and panfish.  It is also the home of the state record Muskie.

At The Pines Resort & Campground we provide all the things you need to bring home fish for dinner during your stay here.  We offer boat and motor rental, a concrete boat launching ramp, live bait, tackle, gas, oil and individual boat slips. We can also arrange for guide service by some of the area's top professional guides.

(Check out the Weekly Fishing Report and Helpful Fishing Links below)

The fishing pros will tell you that Winnibigoshish is truly an anglers paradise famous for walleyes, perch, northerns and muskie. Work the rocks with bottom bouncers or live bait rigs on the shallow sand bars and reefs. Follow the weedlines or fish the deep water structures where the big walleye feed. No matter where you go on "Winnie" you will find a walleye dinner just waiting to be caught.

Lake Winnibigoshish also has some of the best winter perch fishing in the world, along with great winter walleye & northern pike too! For more information click on the Ice Fishing menu on the left.

Lake Winnibigoshish Fishing Report

The Lake Winnibigoshish Weekly Fishing Report is proudly brought to you by The Pines Resort & RV Campground...your full-service Minnesota Fishing and Family Vacation Resort located on Lake Winnie at Winnie Dam Bay. 

For the Week of:  June 11, 2015

The constant weather changes have made fishing a challenge the last few weeks. One day it is 85 degrees and sunny, and the next day is 60 degrees and windy. The walleyes are being caught in 18 to 22 feet on the sunny days, and 10 to 14 feet on cloudy days. The best time of day has been the EVENING, 2 hours before dark. Northern pike are biting almost anywhere in 8 to 12 feet of water on just about anything. Good catches of perch are coming on the weed flats and rock piles in 8 to 14 feet. Have a great time on the lake!
