anybody know roughly how many geese wintered down by the dam? drove around the lake today on my way back to sioux falls and was surprised to see multiple fields with birds feeding, as well as geese, mallards, and goldeneyes roosting on the open water. it was fun to see alot of the birds paired up out in the fields.

I believe the local C.O. said there were 15 to 20 thousand out there.

      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
