I have the Minn Kota powerdrive V2 with the spot lock and its been great for me. It's a cheaper route if your looking for that option.

I tried a couple different spots for eyes on Sunday without any luck but the water is still really cold yet as it was sitting at about 37-38 degrees. The 10 day forecast calls for 50+ degree temps every day so it should warm up quick. Could actually use a little wind to dry things up and get the ice off the lakes.

Just heard Balsam Harbor and Sunset are not accessible by truck as it is blown in with deep drifts. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks retro so if I was going to use balsam is there a street name that the access is on so I'm not wasting half my day looking for it! Thanks again


If you google Balsam Harbor it will bring you right to it. I am going out of this access on Friday and Saturday.

Thanks for the report. I will be heading up Thursday evening and fishing Friday and Saturday. I plan on going out of Balsam Harbor and staying away from the mouth a little bit. Does the water seem to be a little cleaner out deeper yukonman??

As a newbie that would love to make it to that lake someday. Where do you guys start? as far as landing and getting on the ice and general locations...south end or north? sleep on the ice? or a cheap hotel near by? It's a little over-whelming to look at that lake and take a stab.

I'm sure talking with some of the people up there would help once in town but just curious as to what all of you do when do make the trip?

I'm sure this thread has been started before if so just post the link and i'll take a gander.

Thanks.


The best information and knowledge you will attain is by researching it on forums on the web. This site has a lot of information you can search for as well as In-depth outdoors. I spent hours and hours doing research before I even planned my first trip.

I'll be up there the 9th-12th for my second trip of the year. Hoping this trip is better than the first.

I wouldn't say the numbers of big fish are down until the end of March Madness. There will be a lot of big fish caught and a lot more people fishing in March than there is now.

Spent Friday and Saturday up on Lake Winnipeg chasing giant greenbacks and the bite was on the slower side for us.

Friday we headed out to the mouth of the Red River and tried varying depths from 10′ to 18′. We stayed mobile and moved quite a few times but only ended up with about 15 fish iced for the day with a 21″ being the biggest.

Saturday we headed 5 miles more North East out of Warner Road and tried deeper along a large pressure ridge. Again, the bite was pretty slow and weren’t marking many fish so we made moves to the East a mile at a time. For the evening bite we set up in 10′ at the mouth of the river and managed to get a 26″ that absolutely smoked a Jackall.

It was good to be back on Big Windy and came out of the trip with only a broken pole in the Otter. Will be back up in March!
