Little Winnie - Snowmobile Travel

Recommended Posts

lowrox

Hello folks,

I'm heading to fish Winnie on 2/22, we're staying at Little Winnie Resort and will fish portables. Two questions for everyone.

#1. How easy is it to snowmobile from Little Winnie Resort to the big lake.

#2. How is Little Winnie Resort, the pictures on the web make the cabins look really nice?

Thanks in advance for the information.

I got married there in september great place and very nice cabins. I stayed there a few weeks ago fished both lakes did well. It is not a far ride to big winnie schould not be a problem with sleds or wheelers. Talk to the owners they will steer you in the right direction. A awsome place to stay good luck up there.

It is a fairly easy drive from Little Winnie Resort to the big lake via snomobile.

Most of their cabins have been completly remodeled recently on the inside and are very nice.

Iowrox I have a lot leased at Little Winnie Resort so I can tell you a little about the place.The snowmobile trail runs right across the road to the lake access,so from there you can go where ever you want on your sled! I was in the beaver den this last weds.when my buddys stayed there and and I can tell you I was very impressed on the deal they got for such a nice cabin!

Thanks to all for the information, my buddies and I are looking forward to the trip. Hopefully we can get on the perch and maybe even a few slab crappies. How's the bite been as of late? If you don't want to post your hot spot drop me a line at lowrox@yahoo.com. Thanks!!

Iowrox I cant say what the bite is like on the big lake because I didnt try it out there.I had my wheelhouse set up on Little Winnie for 6 days for a test run!We didnt get any eyes but we got a lot of nice pike and some perch,I think we were set up to shallow,19 feet,we should have been deeper for the perch and eyes!

I hear ya on the break from the icehouse. I was in the rapids on friday and sunday just never got any farther north. I am going to go up next week i think. It sounds like i will have to do a little scouting. I have a good idea where they might be. Last time i was up i did pretty good. I could not catch anything but slime on shiners so i went back to fatheads and hippie minnows right on the bottom. That seemed to work. I will give ya a update when i get back. Good luck up on the red sea.

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
