Winsted

3 posts in this topic

Speared this morning/afternoon on Winsted. Saw one bullhead. Ice was about 4-5 inches thick. About 8 or so houses all by the access. I walked all the way across to the point/sandbar. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they like to walk. There is a huge section running across the middle of the lake where a bunch of huge ice chunks froze together. Kind of scary crossing, I went close to shore because I was kinda scared that it might not all be of equal thickness. No one else saw much either. Water clarity wasn't terrible, wasn't as clear as it has been. Dang mice chewed up the tent pretty good this past summer. Anyone got any patching advice? Bad karma also in that I broke the pull start rope on my ice auger. Good luck to anyone else that spears. I'd like to see a forum but I'll keep you posted in January when I hit it hardcore. I have a whole list of lakes from the Hutch DNR with good pike numbers...now if I can find the good clarity to match.

i had a canvas that was a mouse palace. If it's heavy canvas, get enough canvas scraps to make patches and glue them on with "Tarp Mender." I think that's what it's called. Get in a warm garage and just glue those patches on and let them dry real good, and you'll be fine. I never had any trouble with the glue holding, and it's seals like a caulk too.

I have have found that 3M weather strip adhesive will work for glueing the patches on to.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
