Would like some info on where the breakers are at. We will be coming out of highbanks but fishing near zoomers and ravens. A month ago we were ok, but have things changed. Also might fish 3rd river. Any help from people who have just been up would be great.. Oh I better ask, How much ice? Thanks, Joe

I have only fished Winnie a few times, and have never gone out at Highbanks. I did see this brief info in the Grand Rapids forum.

"On Winnie I go out of the Highbanks resort. If you go out of Highbanks you will see the cluster of houses out about 2 miles out and the perch fishing has been best in about 31-34 feet of water. Highbanks is a great spot to have a beer and bull**** about the fishing also. "

I'm headed there Saturday and going out at Nodaks. Good luck!

We had our best luck on either small swedish pimples and waxies or some fatheads. Mostly fished in 26-31 feet. Move, move and move. I would suggest cutting 100 holes in your area and hop hole to hole. The holes don't even have to be far apart. Seamed like we would get one nice perch from a hole and than they would quit. I know you've heard it before, but it's never more true than with Winnie perch. YOU HAVE TO MOVE>

Also, be very careful around the Ice heaves. There was an opening about 2-3 feet wide on a crack about 100 yards from the main heave. So be careful. Otherwise the ice was good.

Thanks for the replies. Checked with some resorts on the south side and they say everything is ok yet for the weekend.

well put hammerem
Had the same experience last friday. Catch 1 maybe 2 fish in a hole then nothing. We didn't do well. Fish on the small side generally. Didn't try in shallow but moved quite a bit in deep water. Put alot of miles on my new auger blades

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
