Ice Leaders Winnie Event Who's Going?

40 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I just paid my entry fee Saturday night with pay-pal for the Winnie Event on January 7th. I was just woundering how many people will be heading up that way? I'll be staying with Brian (bmc) in Deer River. He said we should try and all meet up somewhere on Friday night. That sounds like a plan to me. So if your interested in getting together on Friday night or you just want to say you'll be going to the event. Please leave a post and we can try and set something up.

Take care and Be Save On The Ice!!! ooo.gif

Hey BD,

I am FINALLY climbing out from under the pile of papers at work. It's been about 2 months since I had room to wet a line. That said, I'll probably try and head that way. I had a great time over there last year and saved a few GPS points for this year.

Yep, the Winnie event is sure sneaking up on us! I haven't made it out there yet, but may give it a shot next week. As for meeting up on Friday night, where is everyone staying? The Gosh Dam Place would be a good spot, it's about 15 miles north of US Hwy 2, on Hwy 46 which is just west of Deer River. I've gotta work till 6, so I should be able to be where ever around 7. Just north of Deer River on MN HWY 6 is the Blueberry Bowl, best pizza around. Let's hear what ya' think! There are 2 hotels in Deer River now White Oak Inn 246-9400 and Bahr's Motel 246-8271 and 2 bait shops, both on Hwy 2, one in town and one just west of town.

Hey guys!

I don't frequent the Duluth forum but saw bmc's post in the Winni forum about a Friday night social hour. I'm heading up from the cities Friday night, hope to be packed and leaving work by noon-1pm. I'm staying in a cabin at Denny's. Hopefully 1 of these 2 meeting places is within safe snowmobiling distance of Denny's. grin.gifgrin.gif

See you all there and I'll check back in as the event gets closer.

Northlander,

Sorry I didn't get back to you very quick. What are you doing tomorrow (Tuesday) after 4:00pm? I'm not sure if I'll be working on Thursday I may have to make a quick trip out of town I'll know tomorrow afternoon if I can. Give me a call on my cell anytime tomorrow morning I should be able to get signal.

As far as meeting up on Friday before Winnie I'll be there for sure and I'll be running around with a local just name the time and place. cool.gif

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

I'll be up on Red friday morning with the father in law, staying in a sleeper with BearPaws thru sunday. I gave the FIL the choice of either heading down saturday to Winnie for the event, or heading up to LOTW for the day. It looks like as of now we'll be heading up to the woods, but the FIL likes perch so you never know (plus when i told him about the all the great prizes he perked up a bit).

If i dont see ya there have a great one, and if anyone is planning on hitting red on saturday evening let me know and I'll get ya my cell.

Xplorer,

I can't find your email address. Send me an email at LSW2002 at AOL dot COM. I am probably hitting Red in a sleeper for new years and I going through Bear Paw also. Don't know much about them.

Thanks,

Granny

Well Tom, I'm thinking the Gosh Dam Place on Hwy 46 will be where we head to. It's not really that far from Denny's Resort either. Just head east on US Hwy 2 and take a left on County Road 9, when you get to Hwy 46, GDP will be on your right.

Hey Frank,

I don't know if I can stand it anymore first I have to think about Burntside this morning and now I have to think about Winnie again. Things are getting close. I'm going to try and hook-up with bmc during the afternoon on Friday.

Give a call on the cell when you are headed up that way. Don't forget to remind me to bring my LX3. I'm not sure if I can fish without it anymore grin.gif.

Talk to you soon,

Tom (BD110)

LX 3 Tom??? Santa musta' been good to ya, or was your wife sick of hearing you whine about not having one? LOL I'm hopefully gonna head out to Winnie this coming week and try a couple spots. I'm hearing ice thickness anywhere from 8-12" so I'm not sure how far out people are driving.

I may be headed over Friday night if I can find somewhere to crash. Otherwise I'll be on the road in the dark hours of Saturday morning. Anybody else heading over from Duluth on Saturday. Might not be a bad idea to put a little convoy together. I hope to have a sled to run on the ice with but don't y'all think this cold snap will put some decent ice down?

Lota Lota...

Hey Northlander - finally got the avatar changed. That stubby boat was bugging me and steelhead season is just a few weeks away...riiiiiiight...

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?
    • ZachD
      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      lol I posted that Friday but with no service it must went when I ran into town for new hose

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
