Winnie ICE Series results

Recommended Posts

Dennis Steele

First I want to thank all those who attended. With less than perfect ice conditions on Winnie this year, I am glad all of you made it. Thanks for comming!

I would also like to thank Denny's Resort for hosting us again this year. Great hospitality and a great resort!

Pat and Rhonda did a great job making sure eveyone was taken care of from bait to those wicked specials friday night! Saturday nights fish fry was awsome! Chicken, beans, cole slaw, fries, and of course Pat did a great job on all the fish that was donated from our contestants.

I would also like to thank Jason Boser of Fishing Fever Guide Service for guiding folks out on the ice. Jason did a great job and put some of our top finishers on fish.

OK. I'll get to the results!

Here is our winners

We crowned Ron Zych Worlds Greatest Ice Angler, Lake Winnie, with a total weight of 8.9lbs with one big 'pout! Ron also took the big fish trophy home for that slimy thing.

Congratulations Ron!

Runner Up was our own FM Prostaffer hanson with a limit of nice jumbo perch going 7lbs. Way to go Chris!

Some of our other top finishers were:

3rd- Tim Patterson Jr.- 6.8lbs with a nice bag of perch.

4th- Bruce Williams- 3.9lbs with perch and a pike

4th- Joel Andringa- 3.9lbs with a limit of perch

5th- Scott Zentz- 3.0 lbs of perch and a tulibe

Congratulations to all. It was good to meet you and I hope to see you on the ice again.

Be sure to try and make it to the next event at Medicne Lake in Plymouth MN. We will be heading out from Hartys Boatworks.

This lake is known for very nice pike, great crappies and walleye. This should be a great event and we expect a good trun out.

Sounds like it was a good time, wish I could have made it, but I had prior arrangements. Its looking like the only one I'll be able to make it to definitivly is the one on rush (also looking into a couple of the other events). These events are truely a good time, even if you don't catch fish!

On a side note, how far of a drive from Mora (50 mins from Blaine North on 65) is Burntside Lake? Just curious whether or not thats a drive I want to make.

Good Fishin'

I would guess 4 to 4 1/2 hours or so. Not really sure.

Burntside is 1/2 hour past Ely.

This will be my first year for lakers up there. I can't wait.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
