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...

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
