Fantastic Walleye and Muskie Fishing in Northern Minnesota

Minnesota has thousands of lakes and a plethora of great fishing opportunities, and one of the best is in our area. Lake Winnibigoshish (also known as Lake Winnie) has miles of undeveloped shoreline and is genuinely an angler’s paradise. It is 67,000 acres in size and Minnesota’s fifth-largest lake. 

Fishing pros know it’s a fantastic lake for fishing walleyes, muskies, and more. If you follow fishing news at all, you might remember that the 54-pound Minnesota record-breaking Muskie was caught on Lake Winnie back in 1957 and held the record for many years. Since then, though, a new record was set on Lake Vermillion.

If you’re fishing for walleye on Lake Winnie, make sure you know the current regulations. The Minnesota DNR has enacted a special regulation on Lake Winnie’s walleye — anglers must immediately release any walleye measuring between 18″ and 23″ and may be in possession of only one walleye over 23.”  Click here to see Minnesota’s Fishing Regulations for more information. 

Have fun, and remember, a bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at the office!
