Minnesota Fishing

In Northern Minnesota, there's a place where memories are born. The Ojibwe and early settlers called it Winnibigoshish. Today, locals call it Lake Winnie.

Lake Winnie is located in the Chippewa National Forest and surrounded by hundreds of square miles of lush marshlands, gently rolling hills and diverse woodlands, Lake Winnie is comprised of 67,000 acres of clear, cool water. It's the fourth largest lake in Minnesota. Ninety-five percent of its more than 140 shoreline miles are undeveloped, making it a perfect location for a pristine fishing getaway or family vacation. There are many family and fishing resorts, campgrounds, hotels, restaurants and other year round activities and attractions to enjoy.

Not only does the area have the renowned Lake Winnie, but it is also surrounded by other lakes such as Cut Foot Sioux, Little Cut Foot, Dixon Lake and Little Winnie. These lakes add diversity and beauty to this spectacular area. They also offer outstanding fishing for walleye, northern, perch, crappie and more.
