Winnie Report Water Temps

9 posts in this topic

I am leaving for Winni Wednesday night. Anybody have any new reports or water temps from last weekend. Getting nervous that this cold weather is going to turn her over. thanks

The temp was still around 58 on the big lake and cutfoot. There was a lot of traffic in cutfoot but not on the big lake. There is a good bite for walleyes as long as the weather remained steady and no thunder and lightning.Decent perch on the big lake is also a bonus.Freds bait shop has a good supply of shiners and rainbows.Hope this helps Dave.

hawgeye,

I have the same concern. We are heading up tomorrow night, fishing until Sunday night. I'm hoping for consistent weather more than anything.

We'll be fishing everywhere, main lake, gap, cutfoot. I just hope the wind stays down.

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
