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

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
