Winans Lake Fishing                             

The maximum depth of Winans Lake is 54 feet and the deepest part is basically in the center of the lake.  So basically the lake gets deeper and deeper as you further towards the center of the lake.  Winans Lake has Crappie, Bluegill, rock bass, and Largemouth Bass.  There are some northern pike though I read somewhere that it was catch and release on the pike.

Winans Lake properties are fairly nice.  There are not many old cottages.  One section of the lake the homes sit up on a hill with stairs down to the lake.

Most of the homes are good sized.  There are quite a few 1900 square foot and bigger homes.  I would call this an upper end lake, but there are no mega mansions.  The majority of Winans lake front homes are nice 1500 - 2500 newer built homes.  I would say many of them are from the 1970's on. Children that  live on the lake attend Pinckney Schools.

There are not many old cottages on the lake.  Most are nice homes that are more than weekend cottages.

Between January & October 26, 2012 here's what sold on the lake.

Winans Lake General info  


Did you know that persons less than 12 years of age:

  • May operate a boat powered by a motor of no more than 6 horsepower (hp) legally without restrictions.
  • May operate a boat powered by a motor of more than 6 hp but no more than 35 hp legally only if they:
    • Have been issued a boating safety certificate and have it on board the boat and …
    • Are directly supervised on board by a person at least 16 years of age.
    • May not operate a boat powered by a motor of more than 35 hp legally under any conditions.

Those born on or after July 1, 1996, may operate a boat legally only if they have been issued a boating safety certificate and have it on board the boat.

Those born before July 1, 1996, may operate a boat legally without restrictions.

I hope this explains who can operate a boat on Michigan lakes. 


MSoutheastern Michigan home buyer bonusichigan Inland Lake boat safety

Running over somebody with a boat can cause death and major damage if they are hit by the propeller of the boat.  Here is how to prevent your prop on your boat from striking anybody

Turn off the engine when passengers are boarding or disembarking. Propellers should not be spinning when a passenger is in a vulnerable situation.

Prevent passengers from being thrown overboard accidentally.

  • Never start a boat with the engine in gear.
  • Never ride on a seat back, gunwale, transom, or bow.
  • Make sure all passengers are seated properly before getting underway. Some operators cause injuries by putting the engine in gear while people are still swimming or diving from the boat.
  • Assign a responsible adult to watch any children in the boat and sound the alarm if a child falls overboard.

Always, Always lookout for tubers that have fallen off, skiers that are down, and people swimming in the water. The primary cause of propeller strike accidents is operator inattention or carelessness.

  • Slow down when approaching congested areas and anchorages. In congested areas, always be alert for swimmers and divers.
  • Learn to recognize warning buoys that mark swimming and other hazardous areas.
  • Keep the boat away from marked swimming and diving areas. Become familiar with the red flag with a white diagonal stripe and the blue-and-white “Alfa” flag—both signal that divers are down.

      Here is what one of my previous clients had to say about working with me!
"It was so good to meet a nice and honest Realtor.  It was like he was part of the family.  I was recovering from an illness and we needed to move to a home that was all on one floor.  We had already found a renter for our home so we had to put together the deal quickly.  Russ took care of it all and made whatever trips to our home that were necessary to get everything done.  I had no worries at all.  All I had to do was make it to the closing to sign my name.  We were out of our old house and into the new  in plenty of time so the new renter could move in.  

We even lost our closing package  during the move and he was nice enough to make a new one and drop it buy.  Though I tell him I gained five pounds on the cake that he brought to us.   I would recommend him to anybody that needs a Realtor or mortgage person."
