LETS Statewide WINNI CAMPING

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey all,
It's time to get your campsite reserved for the Winni Event on July 26-27th.

I have picked the following campsite for our use-
http://www.reserveusa.com/jsp/commonpage.jsp?goto=/nrrs/mn/oneg/newindex.html

This is the best option available. Only this one has electricity within the Cut-Foot Souix chain. The Winni Dam Campground has power too, but if we get bad weather, there will be no place to hide out.
The Camp we are at does not have a boat ramp, but one is located up the road 1/4 mile and some of the campsites have lake access so we could beach there for weigh-ins and lunch. A minor problem, but one we can overcome.

Mark and I have campsite #12 reserved for Thursday thru Sunday (just in case you all want to avoid us...lol) And the following sites are available as of 5:30 pm today. All have power and all are right together-
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14

There are other sites available as well on the other side of the loop if you want to be anti-social...lol

So get the reservations in ASAP!!
See ya on Rainy!!!

Shawn and I will be in #11! We will be sharing the site with Capt'n Josh and First Mate (& New Daddy) Josh Raw!

If you want to save a few buck, pair up with another team, you can have 2 vehicles per site and maximum of 8 people per site.

Can't wait until the start of events at the end of the month!

Dang nabbit Grabs, you took my #11!

I hate that stupid web site. It told me this site was open (#11), that site was open to only type in my info several times and find that the sites are taken. I finally found a phone number to get me outta that mess! I wonder how many charges are on my credit card now????? frown.gif

Team CDPP will be in #10...

Sorry man,..I made that change this morning. I saw it was lake side, so I figured why not take it since its open.

Guys,
I'd be very careful.
They count a boat trailer as vehicle #2, so Grabs and Josh, if you both are staying at the same site, you now have 4 vehicles, unless you plan on leaving your boat somewhere else. Also, the maximum length of all vehicles combined is 40 feet.
Good luck!

That's interesting,...I need to go back and do some reading up on that.
*******************************************
Just called the # for the park (218)246-2123 and they said it wouldn't be a problem, vehicles are trucks or cars, not trailers or boats.

That's interesting too.....
Spent a lot of time in those Federal Campsites and they have ALWAYS counted a trailer as a second vehicle.
Just thought I'd give you a heads-up.

Thanks for the heads-up would have sucked to get up there and find out some thing different.

When I made reservations they asked me about vehicles. I made it clear that I had a boat, and two trucks and I needed a site with 40' minimum for parking. They never said anything about a boat being a vehicle. Actually the lady quoted "I don't care about the boat". It sounded like we were both having bad days smile.gif

    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days
