Feb. 22-24 Dead Sea Report

3 posts in this topic

I went out of Hunter Winfields and all I have to say is that I recommend these guys to anyone. Nice clean houses. Caught only two in the ice house and both were lost, a big fat muskie, and a big fat walleye. My group did end up with around 10 jumbos, but we had to work hard for them. I tried every jig in my tackle box, and all sorts of live bait. There was millions of little perches. It was still a fun weekend even though the fish did not cooperate. I recommend Hunter Winfields to anyone, first class resort .

I made it up to my with my friend this weekend to his shack out of the Red Door. I had to work until 10pm friday night so we didnt get up there until 2:30 am saturday. We got our lines in the water and we were woke up at sunrise by this beauty of a 23" eye.

My friend had done well last time up with jumbos and we were hopeful that they would be around again but we had nothing but 4"ers all on the camera. So we hit some north end mud for a couple hours in the afternoon and drilled a bunch of holes. Again we found nothing but 4"ers. Saturday evening, not a run on the rattle wheels. Put the camera down sunday am and there were more perch around. I put a jig down and instantly saw a jumbo. It was cloudy and it seemed the jumbos had slid up where we were. We also saw a dozen eyes on the camera from 8-12am. We were able to pick off a few of the jumbos sunday. We saw some real brutes. We missed a few real brutes. We stayed until 8pm and headed home. Heres a few of the perch we caught.

An 11"er.

A few more 11"ers.

Thanks for the report james, I was up on Saturday with similar luck, a 14 inch walleye, a ton of 8 inch perch with the biggest at 11". My buddy caught a 5 pound eel pout around 3 o'clock too.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
