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!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
