Winnie: Fishing and launch landing

Recommended Posts

Huskie

We will be fishing Winnie Sept. 30 and Oct. 1st, I would like to hear of any success people have had this past week-end and during the week. Also, how is the water level at the landings, we usually put in on Cutfoot at Forest Service landing in Seely our other option would be Plughat, is the water low? Thanks.

Jason: If the winds pick up and we need to stay in Cutfoot, where would be a good place to start? Have never had a great deal of luck there during the day.

I would suggest just as you come in from the big lake through the "cans" or bouy markers, you will see some emergent vegitation on the south side. There is a bay behind the vegitation. fish the north side of the vegitation moving east or west. There is a nice flat just east of the vegitation. i can not think of the bay name. maybe bob's bay. not to sure. hope this helps. I didn't have my map handy.

Jason: We have fished with success just on the Lake side (Winnie) of the gap in the past with some luck, drifting from 15 into 6 feet of water. Is that the area you are talking about? Also, the other guy mentioned a bay, is that the area inside opf Bobs bar? Thanks.

We did put in at Plughat, even that is getting low, nicked the prop coming out. We fished the northshore and had some luck by the rockpile and to the west. A number of boats by us did much better. Heard of some good luck by Stony and in Cutfoot but we had to scout our deer area Sunday, did manage to get a couple of grouse also. Too much to do and too little time!!!

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
