Lake Winnipeg!!!

12 posts in this topic

Just a short update regarding Lake Winnipeg!

The action remains extremely HOT! Yesterday, one of my guests who up from Detroit Lakes, caught a 32" (21" girth), 15.11 # monster! That's the 3rd walleye of this years campaign over 15 #'s!!!

On another note...for those who are fishing Lake Winnipeg, "MAKE SURE THAT YOU PINCH DOWN THOSE BARBS", getting caught can be exspensive and for some guys blush "embarrassing"!

I am having troubles finding info on the web about fishing and resorts up there. Where do people stay? Good places to fish? Any help is appreciated.

You can stay right at Stus (Catmando's) he has accomodations right there. He will also give you insight on where to go. The mouth of the red river is a good place to start though.

You're absolutely right-on fisky! The fine isn't necessarily the "end-all", but the embarrassment for those who get caught cheating, well that's entirely a much diferent matter! I know of a couple of guys who got caught "CHEATNIG" recently with barbs, "who" won't be to happy if (when) their names begin to circulate! winkblushblushblush

Here's a LEGAL catch from today! Caught on a white Hornet that our dear friend Eso (RIP) gave me over the Holidays. I dropped it down and within 5 minutes I caught this 12 lb @29.5" beautiful Lake Winnipeg walleye. One of the 20 or so that I landed today.

Nice fish buddy! You had one heck of a day out there, sorry I couldn't join in. Oh well, there's always next time!

Nice to see that the jig Eso gave you did what it was intended to do! wink

    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • 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.
