Winnipeg, Whitefish Bay LOTW, South Basin LOTW are all on the hit list.



I'd love to get to Winnipeg again but heard it's not good for the big greenbacks anymore cause the commercial fishermen changed the sizes or their nets. Your thoughts...?

It's still above average with trophy fish as compared other bodies of water, but it has definitely changed. The fish have seemed to push out to deeper depths than they have in the past and the schools aren't as large as they used to be. There is a monster year class that was 11-13" two years ago, they were 14-16" last year and should take a nice jump this year. It's the trophy fish potential that draws most people from the states up there. With last year being a down year, I predict another drop in pressure from the states. Last years pressure was noticeably less also. I have some good friends up there so I will still be making the trip.

Upper Red Lake for sure in January but hopefully first ice also. Next year (2019) if Ret-ro has room I would love to come up and make a few more trips. Hopefully Mil Lacs with some friends that live on the lake and they can show me how to put them on the ice...........Kirk

Chuckle! If things remain as they are Kirk, that would be "Show you how they put them back down the hole".

Going up to Red with Bear Paw over new years for 4 days. Bringing some southerners up who have never been on ice. Probably go to lotw in march, would like to do early ice to devils lake. I will plan one other trip, but i will worry about that when duck hunting is done.

I would love to give it a shot again myself but I don't know the lake or have the electronics to go myself. I went with a buddy the 1st time & he had a nice GPS on the snowmobile etc & had fished the lake before as well. When asking him about another trip he's not interested cause he says it's gone too far downhill. 😕

I snowmobile out of Crane Lake into Canada for Lake trout. Going to focus on getting a big one instead of eaters like last year.
