Well I went up to Red on Saturday. Found a spot about 7 miles on Hillman's road. Fished in 13 Feet of water. Although fishing was a bit slow, managed to catch 7 slabber crappies and a couple of small walleyes. Was a bit windy, but was a good trip all together for a day trip. Didn't get home till 2am!

Went to Winnie on Monday. Went in at High Banks Resort for 4 miles and fished in 22 feet of water. I must say the lady at the resort was very helpful! She put us right on the fish. Caught a bucket full of nice size perch and 3 keeper walleyes. Had the camera and boy the schools just kept coming in! I will have to say that the fishing was a lot more exciting! Right at sunset, the fish turned on and I couldn't keep my hook baited fast enough. I plan on going back soon!!!!!! It is closer than red, and you can keep 6 walleyes. Well I will have to wait now till Friday to do anymore fishing, but you can bet I will be going again!!!

Good report and good to hear you had some action. It's always good to come home with dinner when you make a road trip. Good luck fishing this winter!

I live in Hibbing. The trip to Winnie is only about an hour for me. It was my first time there and I was surprised on how close it was. I will definately be making another trip up there real soon. Would like to go next week when the weather will be nice, but I would go anytime because I am a fishing addict!

HOW FAST DO YOU DRIVE? I'm from Hibbing and have done the Hibbing to GR trek often lately, and that is about 45 minutes. I'd say Winnie is about another 45 minutes to 1 hour away. It's a great lake to fish, though, that's for sure.

I drive fast! Need to get to the fish. I also checked miles and it is about 66 miles. I checked mapquest and it is 46 miles to Deer River and from there it is about 20 miles. I don't know how fast you drive, but its about an hour for me, maybe an hour and 5 or 10 minutes. LOL!!!

There is no way Winnie is 45 minutes to an hour away from Rapids unless you are driving a riding lawn mower!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif I can drive from Grand Rapids to Bemidji in an hour!

It is only 34 miles from Hibbing to Grand Rapids. When they get the bypass done around Coleraine and Bovey that will be really nice!

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
