Lake Winnie Fishing & Hunting Report for November 23, 2011

Hello, from Big Winnie.

We are getting ready for ice fishing. The lake has some ice forming around the lake perimeter this week. We will ice-up later than last year, it appears right now.

Deer rifle season is done here. Some very nice deer were taken in spite of the high winds here (and every where) on the opener. Several tree stand mishaps. In the wind, you have to be extra cautious when checking and climbing into your stand. Safety Harnesses are always a good idea.

Grouse hunting has been very good as has the northern flights of ducks. Grouse can still be had, but are deeper into cover a bit more.

Fishing is on hold till ice is here. We will keep you informed on the ice conditions.

Have a good Turkey Day enjoy your time with family!
