WILDERNESS WARMTH FEB 8-10TH

11 posts in this topic

Just got back from staying with Jay at Wilderness Warmth and have nothing but good things to say. My buddy and I got there on Friday morning, got bait, and Jay was ready to take us to our shack. The shack was heated up, holes drilled and just moved, ready to go. Decent shack, good heater, carpet, hole cvers, rattle reels, stove, and decent bunks. He stayed around and talked for a while and said he would be back later. He actaully checked on us regularly throughout our entire trip! Friday night he came by and we told him how slow it was and that little was being seen on the camera, so he told us he would move us Sat. if we wanted. By the way, we were on a really good looking spot--rock bar near a drop off- just little perch though. Anyways, Saturday during the raging wind storm and below zero temps. Jay was out there moving our shack just to try to get us on some fish!! I don't know many guys that would have done that. We ended up catching one really nice perch and some other little ones. I would highly recommend Wilderness Warmth to anyone looking for a nice cabin and a really helpful owner!

That is great news man!!! We have a decent size group going up there this weekend and I keep hearing good news about Wilderness. Hopefully we can manage to pull some Jumbo's and a possible (but not probable) Walter out of the big lake. You guys find any pout after hours?

Yeah, one tiny pout maybe 12 inches but that was it. Never saw a walleye on the camera. Most of the perch we caught were on a bare hooked minnow and most we had to be watching on camera to hook them. The big perch I caught spit up a huge ball of blood worms so maybe something resembling that dropped in and out of the mud would work?

Jay was really good two us 2, the weekend before, we didnt move and only got a few little perch (was enough to keep kids busy watching on camera) and one little eel pout. But all in all we had a great time even though we didnt get any thing. Houses were nice cant complain real confortable good heater. good service, I guess me and my wife didnt expect to catch alot but its about the memorys! we will problably do it again next year

I was at the warmth Sun. to Tues. night saw 8-10 walleye caught 4 two were small 11in. 16in. two were bigger 24in. 25in. we also got 2 nice fat perch, simple set up different colored hooks on the reels, with minner. The perch we started with rattler tipped with minnow head made some noise and ruckus down there seemed to attract them, when they were on camera we would switch to gulp larvea chart-pink on a small hook or freshwater shrimp on a small hook. Best of luck. Jay and Amber keep up the great work.

Just got back from wilderness warmth. We had a very good weekend. I would like to thank Jay and Amber for the excellent service. You guys are top notch in my book. I already want to come back, maybe in march when the perch pick up. Fishing was ok on friday we ended up with 3 jumbos which we had for supper saturday night. Saturday night was the best fishing of the weekend around 9pm I got a 24" eelpout, after that it was steady action till about 1am. We ended up getting a 17", 2 19", 24", 27" and a 29" walleyes. All fish were caught on hook and shiner combos about 4" off the bottom. So I should thank Jay for putting us in his honey hole. THANK YOU once agian for a wonderful weekend. The house was perfect
