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.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
