HUNTERS POINT

Recommended Posts

bturck

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.

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
    • PRO-V
      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border
    • JerkinLips
      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.
