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!

Brian

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
