Final Winnie Results

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the delay, but I have a job too grin.gif

Day One:

Day Two:


Congrats goes out to Chuck and Aaron for a really nice win. It was very close between them and Tom and Mark. Super Job by both teams.

Congrats also goes out to the team of Ron and Doug for bringing in the big fish for the tournament. A Northern Pike that was 34 inches long with a 13 3/4 inch girth. Nice Job guys and I'm sure that you will enjoy that nice Scenic Tackle jig kit.

See everyone on West Battle next month for our last Tourney of the year frown.gif

Winni was a real hoot. Going into the tourney I was skeptical and especially when returning for weigh in on Saturday (which really surprised us!). A lot of those waters can shut off with a flick of the switch, and when the NW winds went crazy Saturday afternoon it really slowed the bite. We were always on the move trying to find active fish.

I'm not going into specifics as to too many of my spots, but those who are in the league I shared every single detail. You'll have to join the league to find out!!

I will say that the area of Sugar Lake produced most of the bass and pike and we caught all the gills in Little Cutfoot Sioux. The areas of the cane, bullrushes and wild rice were key for these fish.

We found a lot of big walleyes on West Winni with leeches and casting cranks over rock piles. When the winds switched 180 degrees on Saturday those fish were lock jawed for us.

We caught a total of 5 bass, 5 northerns, maybe 12 or so perch and 28 gills for the 2 day event.

What a blast!! I have fished Winni for years but I never, ever (honestly) knew there were that many bass and gills in that huge body of water. I lost one bass that we guessed was around the 6lb mark! These events have really taught me to keep an open mind.

I know the race for first is really tight, but how tight is it? Can we see an overall standings and did we decide what system we were going to use?

    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
    • I thought that was what it was.   Thanks for the ID.
    • yea they eat up the acorns. I have soo many acorns, the tree rats cannot put a dent in them.
    • I have always liked the blue jays also. SO much food here they all get along pretty well. 
    • parise looks very slow out there, he was terrible in OT. hopefully the wild can turn this poor play around soon.
    • OK I am now a fan of blue jays. had a woodpecker, a larger one, not the downy on my house, it pecked a few times, I pounded on the wall it flew off into the tree, as I watched it through the window, it landed on the side of the garage ready to go to business, and a blue jay flew at it and chased it off, it happened two times, then the woodpecker flew off. I also had a blue jay chase off bees, they made a paper nest on my eaves in one day, I watched a blue jay land on it, and jump around, the bees would come out, the jay would fly off. then the jay repeated this numerous times until the nest fell off, bees left.
