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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
