The Chippewa National Forest and Lake Winnie provide a true Winter Wonderland with activities for everyone!

Ice Fishing on Lake WInnie at Tamarack Lodge

Ice Fishing

  • Lake Winnibigoshish is legendary in the Midwest for Jumbo Perch fishing through the ice. In addition to the Jumbo Perch action, Northern Pike fishing and spearing is excellent throughout the ice fishing season. Looking for Walleyes? Target the most sought after fish in Minnesota during low light hours in December and January. Lake Winnie is one of the top Walleye fisheries in Minnesota!
  • Lake access, plowed roads, tackle, fish cleaning, icehouses, spear houses and fishing tips are all available at Tamarack Lodge.

Dark House Spearing

Experience the exhilaration, sport and fun of spearing this winter in one of our dark houses. Spear fishing is open for northern pike (and sometimes other fish species per DNR regulations). Spearfishing uses artificial fish decoys or live bait suspended in clear water with the bonus of seeing the fish swim up to your bait in Lake Winnie’s clear water – along with the opportunity to view walleye, perch and other species in their natural environment. You’ll view fish through large holes in the darkhouse and when you see the fish, you spear it. Simple, exciting and fun. Minnesota residents and non-residents are able to spear fish in dark houses. Plus you can also enjoy regular ice fishing as well in the same house.
