8 posts in this topic

Just wodering if any of the resorts on winnie have accesses that are "wheel house friendly". I usually use highbanks but it is too steep for my perm. fish house.

I've used High Banks and Denny's. Denny's has about a 4 foot drop to the ice. I prefer to fish the north side of the lake. I have a wheel house along with a fishing buddys wheel house haven't had any trouble getting up and down the hill at High Banks. Also I'm sure if you asked Rick at High Banks he would be more that willing to help if you needed it. Use 4 wheel drive and it's really not an issue.

Happy to give you a hand!! Our access has been pretty user friendly this year - many large wheeled houses have been utilizing it. Just give us a call at 800-365-2560 and we can discuss the details. Thanks!!

I went out of Denny's on Wednesday with a 22' wheel house with no problems at all. You have drive a little ways to get across the heave on the south end, but they have a marked crossing so no problems there either. We did very good on the walters too. Caught 30 fish on wed. night keeping a limit and 10 more thurs. morning with 2 at 25" and 1 26"er. It was awesome.

thanks for the replies! I am heading up there this coming weekend and bringing my neice along.

wing nut, what area of the lake were you fishing---I have never done that well on the eyes during the winter on winni---usually only one or two a weekend---I am mainly going for perch but closing out the walleye season with a bang would be sweet

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
