Thanks to Hunter Winfields

12 posts in this topic

Spent New Years on Mille Lacs with the girlfriend, used the road out of Hunter Winfields. They were nice enough to plow a quick spot for us to set the wheelhouse. Fishing was slow but we didn't care we just wanted to get out on the ice instead of spending New Years at home.

Thanks again.

Josh

It is a signature, nothing more, just a list of my equipment and accessories, many forums allow a signature and many others have a signature for their user name. If i had a boat I would list that too.

Trying to impress people? No, I don't think so. I'm sorry if you took it that way.

Nope got up on the same side of bed I always do. I in fact have plenty of nice things, I just do not see the need to brag about anything other than maybe the occasional big fish. And if you notice I am not the only user who made a remark about your signature. Have a GREAT day!

Surely I can see how people might think he's bragging but in his defense, go to any 4-wheeling website like Highlifter or something and you'll see that it's normal for people to list what they have and their accessories below their post.

Hey SomethingFishy,

Any night on the ice is a good one. Were you in one of their wheelhouses? I checked their website and they look like they are reasonably priced for a weekend visit and well equipped too. I was also wondering, if they will move them for you in case the fish aren't really active where originally put you.

I brought my own wheelhouse, just used their access and they plowed me a spot to set mine up. I saw quite a few of there houses out there and they have some really nice units they have Ice Castles, Lodges and Dreamshacks that I saw, each were running a generator. Even though we weren't in one of their houses he still came to check on us and see if we were having any luck. I would not hesitate to rent from them in the future, I may do so early season when the ice is still sketchy for my bighouse.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
