Statewide: Lake Winnie

Recommended Posts

Winnie is July 26, 27th.
If any one missed it Tom started a topic about camping on Winnie. Here is the link:
http://fishingminnesota.com/ubb/Forum40/HTML/000167.html

As far as I have found the only regulations on Winnie that are different from the rest of the state pertain to Walleye and these also apply to any waters attached to Winnie.
Walleye between 17"-26" are protected and you can keep one over 26"

We will probably want firewood for this event as I imagine some long nights around the fire.

See you all up there!

Cory, sounds great!

Hey Metro guys?? I may be looking for a ride on Friday AM, or potentially Aaron and I may be able to ride together depending on when he is leaving. I plan to leave work around 10:30-11am on Friday and start heading to Winnie. Is anyone else heading up at this point in time, I won't have much other than a bag of clothes and maybe a cooler. CD if you see this let me know how to get in contact with Aaron, maybe he could just ride up with me, or me with him. Shawn is going to go up early (must be nice having all that vacation time). If I ride up with someone, I won't need a ride home. I live in Hopkins and work in Eden Prairie, so I could meet some one pretty much any where in the metro.

Thanks
Chris

Grabs, Aaron will likely be at Winni Thursday night. We set time away from work to pre-fish every event all day Friday to find the bass, I mean fish. smile.gif

Hey all... my cabin is just a short drive from Winnie and if you'd all like to reconnoiter there on Friday night after prefishing during the day I'll supply some brewskies and chips and such. And if anyone would like to pitch a tent in the yard there or throw a sleeping bag down in the living room you are welcome to doing that also. Just let me know who might be interested in any or all of those ideas. Doug G.

Doug, you may want to inquire about posting directions in the new LETS forum for members only. This way you don't have to post this out where everyone can find out where your cabin is. To do so I would contact Tom or Paul via e-mail and see if they can help you move the directions into that new forum area.

For those interested in stopping by on Friday night before the fishing starts in earnest you just take County Road 88, which is just 1/4 mile west of Cohasset on US 2.
5 miles of blacktop end in a gravel road which you then turn right and come to a public landing on Bass Lake. 2 places down to the right from the landing is a log sided cabin... our place. I hope some of you can make it for a while.

Bob, thanks for the reply, but I can't leave until Friday AM. Shawn's taking my truck up so I plan to just drive his car up Friday after work.

Thanks for the offer.

Grabs,
If you can take all of Friday off you can ride with me. I'll be leaving in the middle of the night to get there about dawn.
Bob

    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
