Hunter’s Point Resort

walleye56

Heading up to Hunter’s Point in a week. Wondering if anyone has any info about Hunter’s Point Resort? -Service, House’s, etc. I know the fishing is slow, so the majority of our efforts could turn to bottle bass fishing. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

Havent fished Hunter's in the winter, so I dont know about the houses, but we camped up there this past summer. George runs a great buisness, and is VERY friendly. He actually told us about a fishin spot of his own, and we did very well there. You will love it I promise. Good luck!

We've been ice fishing out of Hunter's for the past several years and George is a great guy. His houses are bare bones and he admits it but the price is right. We were up the 2nd weekend in January and fishing was very slow. The cold front moved in just as we showed up. We managed 8 walleye, one in the slot and the rest in the 20's. 25" was the biggest. The perch seem to be in 30' of water just off the structure. George is as honest as you'll find. He wants you to catch fish but won't pull your leg with a fish story!

Thanks for updates. All I’ve ever heard is "George is a good guy." I’ve also heard his house’s are "bare-bones" too. By bare-bones are you meaning no TV’s, bathrooms, rattle reels, and those other luxuries that you have at your own home? Any advise on gear that we should bring?

You got the right idea. Some of the houses up there are so nice you feel like your at home. George has nice houses for fishing. They have carpet, the bunks have 4" foam on them and I've never had a problem with the heaters. The houses don't have rattle reels or cook stoves but it will have a table and chairs. He'll have a few out houses scattered around his rentals. We normally bring sleeping bags, a grill, lanterns (he has 2 gas lights - not very bright)food and our fishing gear. It's a pretty basic trip for us but we also bring our portables so we can move around during the day and find the perch. This year has been tough. Hopefully you'll get some walleye at night out of your permanent house. When you do it makes for a long fun night!

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉

      Thanks, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      And at first ice, drop them down the hole....  😀🤣

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.
