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?

    • So reviving a dead thread ..

      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
