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.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
