Winnie on opener anyone?

13 posts in this topic

So who is gonna be there? I am thinking my girlfriend and I will be on the NW corner by Mallard Pt. Not 100% sure yet, but close.

I have a Skeeter tiller w/75 Yamaha, white with red/blue accents. If you see me say hey- and tell me where they are biting! lol

Might head to Mille Lacs on Sunday though-

I will undoubtedly be up there! We have a private cabin on the Four Seasons resort, and im sure we will stay on the west side. If you are looking for specifics, I will be fishing right off of the point out from the pine tree grin.gif

I will be out for sure, we stay at the cabin with the bird houses (West side). I'll be in that neck of the woods. It sounds like there will be plenty of fish to go around! lets just hope the water levels come back up. Good luck to all!!!

*** Winniewalleye777 ***,

My Dad owned a Cabin at Four Seasons Resort from the 50's to the early 70's !!! It is White with Blue trim along the river midway in.

I dont think we have your cabin, however, we do have a white cabin with blue trim. It is the last cabin on the left as you come in. It is right on the resort fenceline. It was previously owned by my grandmothers (cousin, uncle?) relation named Ted Hensch. He once owned and operated the resort. I think he ran the resort in the 40s and 50s. Im sure my grandpa (Don Steve) knew your dad.

BTW: Yes, I will be on Winnie for opener - been doing it for 39 years now.......

I seem to remember that name!

Is your Grandpa still alive?

My Dad was on Winnie fron right after WWII to when he died in '94. Honest a top of the line fisherman. Before depth finders, he "lined up" certain trees or valleys in tree lines to get us on the edges of the bars.

Resort owners used to follow our spear houses out because he secretly lined up trees that he notched and walked out about 500 paces from the Sugar campground.....

Yes, my grandpa is still alive, however, he does not make it up too much anymore. have you been up to see what four seasons has done lately? It looks really nice. I think that your dads cabin is now owned by a couple from milwaukee.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
