How safe is it???

3 posts in this topic

We are going to brave the elements and head to Winnie in the morning. Is the ice safe enough for 4-wheeler travel? Which end of the lake has better ice, the north or the south. I am currently planning on fishing the north side. Anybody have any suggestions for some afternoon walleyes?

My buddy was up at winnie yesterday, and said there was a solid 10 inches in the north middle of the lake. He was fishing out on a hump.

You should be OK with wheelers. It does vary. We found as little as 5 and as much as nine on saturday. This was three quarters of a mile apart.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
