Winnie ICE Series results

3 posts in this topic

First I want to thank all those who attended. With less than perfect ice conditions on Winnie this year, I am glad all of you made it. Thanks for comming!

I would also like to thank Denny's Resort for hosting us again this year. Great hospitality and a great resort!

Pat and Rhonda did a great job making sure eveyone was taken care of from bait to those wicked specials friday night! Saturday nights fish fry was awsome! Chicken, beans, cole slaw, fries, and of course Pat did a great job on all the fish that was donated from our contestants.

I would also like to thank Jason Boser of Fishing Fever Guide Service for guiding folks out on the ice. Jason did a great job and put some of our top finishers on fish.

OK. I'll get to the results!

Here is our winners

We crowned Ron Zych Worlds Greatest Ice Angler, Lake Winnie, with a total weight of 8.9lbs with one big 'pout! Ron also took the big fish trophy home for that slimy thing.

Congratulations Ron!

Runner Up was our own FM Prostaffer hanson with a limit of nice jumbo perch going 7lbs. Way to go Chris!

Some of our other top finishers were:

3rd- Tim Patterson Jr.- 6.8lbs with a nice bag of perch.

4th- Bruce Williams- 3.9lbs with perch and a pike

4th- Joel Andringa- 3.9lbs with a limit of perch

5th- Scott Zentz- 3.0 lbs of perch and a tulibe

Congratulations to all. It was good to meet you and I hope to see you on the ice again.

Be sure to try and make it to the next event at Medicne Lake in Plymouth MN. We will be heading out from Hartys Boatworks.

This lake is known for very nice pike, great crappies and walleye. This should be a great event and we expect a good trun out.

Sounds like it was a good time, wish I could have made it, but I had prior arrangements. Its looking like the only one I'll be able to make it to definitivly is the one on rush (also looking into a couple of the other events). These events are truely a good time, even if you don't catch fish!

On a side note, how far of a drive from Mora (50 mins from Blaine North on 65) is Burntside Lake? Just curious whether or not thats a drive I want to make.

Good Fishin'

I would guess 4 to 4 1/2 hours or so. Not really sure.

Burntside is 1/2 hour past Ely.

This will be my first year for lakers up there. I can't wait.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
