Play On The Ice And In The Snow During The Winter At Lake Winnie
Whether your winter passion is ice fishing for Minnesota walleyes, northern pike and jumbo perch, snowmobiling through the tall pines of northern Minnesota, hiking or cross-country skiing though the winter silence of the Chippewa National Forest, the Lake Winnie (Lake Winnibigoshish), MN area has it all!
During the Minnesota ice fishing season, walleye, jumbo perch and northerns take center stage. In fact,
Lake Winnie is a premier Minnesota ice fishing destination! From first ice in November/December to ice out in April, Big Winnie is well known for being a top producer of jumbo perch and nice sized “eater” walleye. The walleye season runs through early ice through the end of February while jumbo perch are available all season long. And you don’t have to “rough it.” Enjoy fishing from a heated fish house already warmed up.
Lake Winnie (Lake Winnibigoshish) is a gateway for many of Minnesota’s most popular snowmobiling state trail systems including the Soo Line and Heartland. In addition to the state trails, there are hundreds of miles of groomed local snowmobile trails winding through the nearby woods. Many restaurants and other businesses are accessible from the trail so visitors can enjoy the amenities during their ride. Lake Winnie is also only a short drive away to many outstanding cross-country trails.
