EP Lakes, Riley/Lotus

5 posts in this topic

How are the ramps on these lakes? The options are a 20' new heavy Skeeter or a old 14' Lund, both towed by 4x4 so that isnt a problem.

I've never launched at Lotus so I can't speak to that, but you can get your skeeter in at Riley. Our Fire Dept launches a 20' Lake Assualt on the Riley launch. You'll be fine there.

Both seem to be pretty good but I've seen some funny things from the wakeboard dudes trying to load their boats :-)

The Lotus launch is pretty nice you can get your 20' in no problem, I was there a week ago or so and the water was low so that made it tricky w/ my 2x2... also there is a dock on lotus where as riley doesn't have one...

We were out on Riley on Saturday evening. Launch was fine, they did have a dock. Fishing was OK, not great. Handful of bass, 1 decent pike, 1 keeper walleye (released) and a crappie.

Great lake, great weather, nice night.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
