Winnie frozen over?

8 posts in this topic

I heard rumor that a local pilot was up the other day and flew over Winnie and said the lake was completely froze over? Seems a bit early for that, but it would be nice if this was true. Can anyone confirm this....how about ya' highbanks?

The area by the (Contact Us Please) is frozen over but the big lake was open as far as the eye could see from Tamarak Point as of yesterday.

Hey bmc,

How is it going Brian? I'm looking forward to heading up your way again this winter. We need to make some plans on the calandar. Are you giving any thought to attending the early Ice Get-together on Fish lake on the 8th of December?

I'll talk to you soon!!

P.S. I've been doing some Looper fishing also this last week.

Hey Tom,

I've been wondering where you've been, I'll have to give you a call this week. As for an ice report, I was at Tamarack Point this AM in hopes to finish out the duck season there. There was ice as far as my eyes and binocs could see!!! Granted there was some steam way off across the lake, so I'm not sure if that was open water or not, but it looks good!

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
