Lake Winnibigoshish questions

3 posts in this topic

We're planning to visit Lake Winnie for the first time. I've found several fishing reports listing off some areas of the lake but can't find a map that actually shows where these spots are. Snaghole Bar, Hunter’s Hump, River Bar Horseshoe Bar, Moses Bar, and North Moses Bar. Anyone familiar with the lake that could help me out? Also, looks like High Banks and Nodak Lodge may be good places to head out from with a wheel house? Is there a preference? With the Mississippi running through the lake does a guy need to avoid that channel with the vehicle? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much in advance!

It would be a good investment to buy a lake map, if you don't have a handheld GPS with a map chip. You can do some homework ahead of time and map out a bunch of areas you want to try.  There is good fishing on the east side (High Banks) and south/SW side (Nodak). You can't really go wrong...great structure all over the lake.

The plowed roads on Winnie steer clear of any trouble spots as far as thin ice, but always good to be cautious when venturing off road, especially if you end up near where the river dumps in or flows out by the dam.
