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!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
