Zoo on Opener

3 posts in this topic

I have fished Winnie before, but never on Opener.

If I go there should I expect a complete zoo, or is it manageable? Will I be able to get a parking spot at the landing, or do I have to get there at 5 in the morn to do so. ANy thoughts would be helpful...

THanks

It will be a ZOO on opener. Word is the Leech Lake Locals will be invading the waters of Winnie. You might want to get to the landing by 4:00.

I stopped fishing Winnie on opener a few years ago when I had to wait 1 1/2 hours to land the boat Sat. morning, and this was 3rd River landing which is used less than others.

      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.
