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.

    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
