7 posts in this topic

Looking to put a 32'Camper on Winnie for next summer anyone have any advice of where to start looking. I am very familiar with the lake and have fished it for years. It will be my wife and I and 3 teenage sons. Looking for a place with access to a pool. We love to fish and tip a few when were done tongue.gif

Hello - we have a brand new 15 site campground at our resort that we opened mid-June 2007! All of the spacious sites have water, sewer and electric and situated amongst the towering pines of the Chippewa National Forest. We are located on the east side of Lake Winnie just south of Tamarack Point. At our lodge we offer a restaurant and full cocktail bar. We also have a water trampoline, arcade, atv trails and mountain biking. At this time, we have a few seasonal sites still available. You can check out our website at www.highbanks.com or give us a call at 800-365-2560. Thanks!

Thanks for the help guys! I agree Winnie is a great lake and would choose no other lake to spend my summer. My wife and I are both teachers so we'll get good use out of it. Highbanks I am very interested in your campsite, but I had trouble viewing the pictures on the site. I have stayed at your resort when the Humphries owned it so I am familiar with the resort. I will be in touch!

Jigglestick I will check with Tamarack also the pool doesn't mean much too me but quite a high priority to the wife!!!

Tom, Northland Lodge has a nice lodge and pool but I don't think they have any seasonals available. It's worth checking though. You can check out their website at northlandlodge.com We've been going there for years and have had a seasonal for the last 5. Great location and great people. Tamarack is next door and Highbanks is right around the corner. I think you'd be happy with all of the above. Let me know where you end up so I can tip a few with you.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
