Lake Winnipeg---last weekend of season

Recommended Posts

I know a lot of you had trips planned for the last weekend, but fighting floods took priority.

The bite was good all over the South basin. I fished Chalet, Gimli and Hecla Island. Caught lots of fish at all places. The big girls were few and far between for most people though.

For the guys fishing the south end, clean water was the answer. The spots that have been holding fish were done. The Red was making the water murky anywhere near it. Access was good at Warner, and the ice conditions were good.

I've been wondering the same thing as Rob- how's Stu? I've sent him a couple e-mails, but they've bounced back, saying his "quota is full". I imagine lots of e-mails in his inbox from people wishing him well.

I hope he's doing ok. Stinkin' river!

I drove by Stu's today. To me water looks un-changed. It is not in his buildings as of today. It looked like he had some dock and small boat damage that were on the shore..

I would guess the water is about 2' from the deck of the buildings. There is lots of ice in front of the dam and all down river.

Our flood forcast is very dependent on ice jams north of Selkirk.

So far so good, but that can change in an hour.

Stu took his computer out of the COTR building so he wouldn't lose it in high water. He doesn't have high speed internet at home so he probably hasn't had computer access in a week.

Thanks for the update Gator. The real water should be starting to show soon, I hope they can get that ice on the move somehow.

I was at Stu's today...the water is moving and actually gone down a bit. Still more to come when the crest arrives in a couple weeks though.

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
