Winnie cabins

5 posts in this topic

Planning another short trip to Winnie a week or so after the 4th. We usually stay at the Gosh Dam motel but would like to get on the lake if possible. Does anyone know of a bare bones cabin on the lake, under a 100 bucks a night that 3 or 4 guys could rent for either 2 or 3 nights on a 4 day trip? Not interested in spending 150-200 a night on this junket when we will be on the water all day. Thanks for the info in advance.

Highbanks has several cabins under $100 a night, and a few more at $108. Just fished out of there, and it's a great resort to fish from. Good landing, bait, bar, gas, and good information on the latest bite. From our experience, it gets you out on the lake much more quickly in the morning having everything right there.

jnelson: We have fished out in front of Highbanks many times, do you need to pull your rig out of the water each night due to the potential of the NW or W wind picking up during the night? Or is there some protection on the dock--didn't seem like it. With the mid lake bars and humps going strong it appears like a great place to stay.

Hello!! We do have some availability yet in July. Give us a call at 800-365-2560. For docking overnight we have boat lifts available to our guests. They rent for $10/day and get your boat up and out of the water, we match your boat/motor size up to the appropriate size lift. It seems to be the best option when we have prevailing winds. Other guests prefer to have their boat/trailer parked by the cabin. We have a dock boy on staff to assist you throughout your stay with bait, fuel, backing up trailers, placing on lifts, etc. Feel free to check out our website at www.highbanks.com for pictures, etc. Thanks!!

We kind of liked being able to trailer-up each night for a few reasons rather than getting a lift. If the wind/weather came up during the night, we were ready to drive off to a smaller lake. That, and we usually had several types of bait and other items we wanted to take care of in the cabin, so parking right next to it made the carry much shorter and easier.

That said, the lift gets you out on the lake faster in the morning to give you a few more minutes to sleep in.

Launching there is a breeze, esp. with Josh's (dock attendant) help.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
