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!

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!

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
