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!

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
