Are there bass in Winnie?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hello, my brother has invited my family and I up for a camping trip on Winnie (we're from Utah). Now I've been looking a bit at the lake map of Winnie and curious about bass fishing. Are there good bass numbers in Winnie or is it a walleye lake? I was reading the other night that there are smallmouth as well as largemouth, is this true? Now my brother will probably try and make us fish walleyes, but I really want to try some bass fishing up in this area given the chance. If the populations on Winnie aren't much, is there another spot to try?

The best is the Walleye numbers and for eating. We do have great numbers of largemouth in Winnie. Look for bull rushes on the side you are staying. By the mouth of Sugar Lake is great. Crawler rig with a crawler weight and just cast in the rushes then hang on for the action. Good luck.

The Cut Foot Sioux chain of lakes (connected to Winni) has decent bass fishing. If you are a bass guy you'll find them smile.gif Just use what your normally use for bass and northern. You don't "need" live bait for bass and pike, but for walleyes you definitely need some sort of live bait (crawlers, leeches, minnows). Have a good trip!

Thanks guys, that's the name he mentioned, just didn't remember it off the top of my head. Boy I feel like an idiot now though - sue or Souix(come one MT get with the show)!! Geez I should have known.

Well hopefully we'll get into them good, still not sure when we are heading up for certain. Could be the last weekend in July or the first weekend in August, should be up for a week though as long as the weather is decent.

Paul, is that you with the Muskie on the front page tonight? Nice fish, I wish I could catch a fish that big. I guess there is a chance to hook into one on Winnie while we are bass fishing, you never know.

Again thanks guys!

MT,

Thanks, it was a fun fish to catch.

Both CD and I will be fishing the LETS series on Winnie the weekend of 26th and 27th. If you are going after that shoot one of us an e-mail and we can give you a few starting points and an idea of what was working. If you will be up there that weekend. Shoot me an e-mail and I can give you my cell amd we can do the same. You are in for a real treat, Winnie is a great lake. grin.gif

Thanks Ron. Are you a saying that most use live bait for bass on Winnie? I'm actually not much of a live bait fisherman, but if its what works then I'd be up for trying it.

Is live bait a better choice all around on Winnie, like for pike also?

Another question, talked with my brother last night and he mentioned something about another lake near Winnie and it being attached to Winnie, something about sue and feet. Can't remember for the life of me what he said though. Anyhow he said we would be staying near there and that this other lake might be of interest to us. Do you know what I speak of?

MT,

The lake you are referring to is Cutfoot Sioux and little Cutfoot Sioux. Some really nice panfish to be found, haven't yet fished it for bass, so I can't help you out there.

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun
