Winnebago

Postby bp64 » Sun Oct 14, 2012 6:37 pm

Alright so I've been wanting to hunt Lake Winnebago but I don't have a boat that's worthy of big lakes like that being that it's a 10 foot layout/sneak boat. I hunt marshes and rivers with it and it does fine. What I need to know is whether or not there's back water oppurtunity where there's little to no waves for my little marsh runner. I'm not asking for any specific location but I just want to know if it's worth the drive to do some scouting. Any input/advice would be awesome

There are spots but you need to watch the weather plan and especially the wind
I have been a boater on the lake for years, and hunting it also
The deal is that the wind will switch and you can end up in 3' rollers where you had 3" ripples just before
So, get some google maps out, there are more on the west side of the lake, check back area stuff

I've been looking around on Google maps and can't seem to find anything that looks like scout-worthy :help:

The shoreline of Winnebago is pretty populated around the entire lake, and its also a rocky lake so there aren't many marshy areas like Butte des Morts and Poygan have. So pretty much you layout hunt, or hunt someones private property that has a peninsula or whose neighbors dont live right on top of them.

Hi,

New to the forum and recently re-started my duck hunting life after a long hiatus. I know I'm late to reply here but I thought "better late than never". I started hunting in Oshkosh when I was younger and if you want to hunt with the boat you describe in Winnebago around Oshkosh try the "carp ponds" just south of South Asylum Bay. I haven't been there in years but its worth a look.
