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 just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      Thanks a lot phishnerd! I will give it a shot and let ya know how I do! I am hoping to get out tomorrow if not hopefully this weekend! Thanks for the tips on baiting also! What would you use for live baits?
