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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
