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 have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
