opinions wanted on "The Winnie" portable...

4 posts in this topic

Hello fishing world!! Looking for anyone who wants to throw there 2 cents in the hat. I went to fleet farm today. Unfortunately I could not take one home because they ran out of stock. I picked up a raincheck for it(due 1-12-03)So does anyone else out there have one of these?

Shaakattack,

A friend of mine has one. It seems to be a good unit for the money. It takes a bit more time to set up than most portables. More loose poles to deal with. It won't fit in the box of my Supercrew but that has a very short box. Other than that its a very comfortable unit to fish out of.

I bought one at Fleet Farm also…I think it is great I use the new style collapsible fold up chairs and a Rubbermaid container for a center table. It also holds most of my gear. I also have a 22-foot chain I bring with to throw down along the lower flaps. It beats shoveling snow to bank it besides there isn’t any snow this year.
One thing I would do right away while assembling it, I went back and redid mine after I originally assembled it. On the side of the sled you bolt the canvas to, buy (4) bolts an inch longer and hang a short chain (10 inches or so) between the two out side holes.
This does two things it gives you a place to tie your ice anchors to and gives you decent handles when it is all collapsed down for easy loading. I would also buy a travel cover for it right away. I keep mine on a small trailer and it is a must.

I also like mine. It seems to be a good unit for the money. I like the extra two poles in the front for holding the canvas down in windy weather. It fits in my Chevy shortbed just fine.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
