Labor Day On Winnie

7 posts in this topic

I'll be camping at cut foot sioux that weekend so I'll fishing both there and winnie...ice fished winnie once (this past winter) and that sums up my experience for the lake. I'll be after multiple species. As much water as there is to cover, I'm looking to be pointed in the right direction. Any info would be appreciated...thanks.

I was on cass memorial weekend and there wasn't much for people in the area...I'm guessing labor day is much more busy? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for gloomy weather.

Last year Labor Day weekend is when the fall bite hit out in front of us! It turned on like a light switch!! Boats were drifting in 8-10 feet of water parallel to shore using a jig a minnow. No-kidding we had approximately 700+ boats out front pulling in limits of walleyes.

I've spent many a late fall morning in front of your resort, highbanks. Matter of fact, the single best day of eye fishing i've ever had was out there 8 years ago. I've never caught numbers of big eyes on winni before, but that day between my dad and I we got, if i remember correctly, 20 eyes over 24" w/ the biggest at about 28", which is the biggest eye we've ever caught outta the lake.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
