My wife and I will be staying at Bowen Lodge during our trip to Lake Winnibigoshish. The lodge was highly recommended by a guide that will be taking us out on our first day on the lake. The correspondance from the lodge was top-notch. Are any of you familiar with Bowen Lodge and is it a good place to stay? The guide that I contacted was Jeff Skelly and through his correspondance he seems to be very professional and friendly. I asked him his personal recommendation regarding when to come to Minnesota and what lake to go to and he told me September 18-24 and Lake Winnibigoshish. I can't wait for the trip.

Please forgive me for posting twice after registering, but I am excited about the trip.

You could not stay at a better place... I have been going to Bowen Lodge for 7 years now. It is truly the best place on the lake... I have also booked a day of fishing with Jeff every time I go up you will not find a better guide.

Bowen's is excellent. I've been going there for over 25 years, before the current owners bought it. Back then a couple of the cabins lacked the basics such as toilet & stove but the Heig's have improved it a great deal.

They (the Heig's) run a top notch resort and are some of the friendliest resort owners I've ever met.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
