15 posts in this topic

I am taking a spearing trip up on Dec 26-31 to cass lake, but thinking of coming to winnie one day and spearing it.

Anyone going to be around like the 29. Let me know, maybe we can hook up.

I think I will be around there about that time.I was on little winnie on the 12th and the water was murky,you could only see about 6 feet.I hope we get more ice,I think with the ice moveing up and down it stirs up the bottem.

Hello Pikeslayer, Are you using your trailer this winter season? I don't use mine now, usually stay in the wheeled house but haven't had it out yet. Stan C. laugh.gif

The reason for the murkyness is because the dam is opened up pretty good now. lots of water flow. From what I understand, even the Bowens area is also a little murky.

I stopped in at highbanks once and they were closed(late night)my shack is about 4 miles away so Im sure Ill meet them soon,It sound like a good place! I dont know what kind of heater your looking for but I have a colman model9210A that I took out of my 17foot camper/ wheelhouse.It is vented and is rated at imput 9000 btu hr-----output6300 btu hr.I tryed it and it works good. Im just a woodstove kind of guy so I took it out,much to the dislike of my fellow fisherman!

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
