HUNTERS POINT

11 posts in this topic

Thinking of moving our perm up to Hunters Point. Have tried to reach George or someone the past couple of days and have only gotten an answering machine. Anyone know if they are taking a little vacation before the hard water work starts, and if so when they might return? Not sure if the move will work, the house is on skids not wheels, so we'll need to get it moved. Thanks for any info Bill

if you do need it, I have a name of a guy who moves houses. I had my 10X16 on skids moved from one side of the lake to the other last year with no issues.

shack...that's him!!! he is a very nice guy, easy going. I made arrangements with him to move me from Isle to Garrison. we had a timeframe worked out, and I had the spot reserved at the new place. he knew my house and where it was and was going. I called him to see when he wanted to move it, and if I need to pay him right away....turns out he had to move others, so he grabbed mine and did it that day, and I just sent him a check!!! He'll work with you to get your house where it needs to be safely!!

I am not a 100 percent sure, but I believe that hunters can't take in any more fish houses. The county put all kinds of restrictions on them this summer. The county wanted them to shrink the number of houses. We had to all write letters to the county commisioner to help with the fight. Luckily we won, yet I believe one of the rules hunters agreed to is they can't take in any more fish houses. I guess people of the county were complaining about increased lake traffic.

I thought I read this on their web site also!

If I remember correctly, the neighbors complained. They had done some resent upgrades (I.E. fence, sewer and others). But it was not enough.

Well I know that the ruling is making hunters make a few changes. I don't think that is should affect any one that is a currently has a fish house there. I believe they ruled that hunters can't have more then 300 houses. Which I am pretty sure, that they currently have 300. So I believe that means they can't take on any more.

      Dad and I fished this past Saturday and Sunday with portables and saying the fishing was slow would be an understatement. Between the 2 days we hit the mud flats pretty hard and stayed very mobile. Didn't even set up a house during the day because it was so nice out. We fished the mudflats from East Flat down to Blue Jug, over to 8 Mile and back up to Matton Flat. The day bite was very tough, we would mark fish but they wouldn't want much to do with it. We picked up 3 eyes Saturday morning with the biggest being 17" then picked up only 3 more during the day. They only seemed to hit our dead sticks with a shiner on it. We used mainly VMC gold perch tingler spoons and flutter spoons without much luck jigging. On Saturday night we had a sleeper rented from Twin Pines Resort and our house was in 20'. We had 6 bites throughout the night with a bigger fish breaking off and a couple smaller ones being caught. We really had to give them a lot of time to inhale the shiner. On Sunday we went back out to the Mud Flats with little confidence and the fishing was pretty slow again. Didn't hear many good reports from this weekend, not sure if it was the warm weather along with the pressure system or what.

      I think your best bet would be the narrows on Pelican. That can be pretty good crappie and walleye area. I usually fish it a couple times earlier in the season. Otherwise closer to Battle Lake you could give South Turtle or East and West Lost a try.

      I thought Clitherall was pretty good but never fished panfish down there.  I fish mainly the Perham/DL area.   Panfish have been very skitish as of lately.  We have been using mainly 4mm and 5 mm jigs for crappies but the panfish are wanting 3 mm jigs.  Best luck has been with a horizontal shapped jig tipped with 2-3 wax worms (depending on hook and wax worm size) very lightly jigged.  Most of the action has been once they appear is to reel up above them 5-8 feet then slowly drop down stopping 1-2 feet above them and twitching the jig LIGHTLY.  Anything with a "GLOW" has been killer for paints.  The lakes I've been fishing have almost a foot of snow and the water was merky prior to freeze up so even though the sun is up I'm still hitting the jigs with the UV Light and the fish are instantly reacting.  I've been targetting deeper holes and finding them in that 20-30' mark but I've heard some reports that they have started coming back up into the shallows and hitting the green weeds again.  Crappies right away this year were liking the 5 mm jigs tipped with a wax worm and soft plastic suspended but they have started preferring smaller jigs also.  Hope this helps you some.

      Caught a few walleyes on o'dowds this weekend. Was marking a lot of fish on the bottom but very skidish and not willing to bite very well. Anyone else have any luck on o'dowds?
