Report: Hunters Point 1/13 &1/14

I along with 9 other friends went out of Nitti's Hunters Point this past weekend. We drilled a lot of holes and did very well. 25 feet of water most of the time. We were using jigging spoons in fire tiger colors and white, a couple guys also used Hali spoons with a dropper. We also used set lines with fatheads. We started each morning around 8am and quit around dark. It seemed the bite stopped as soon as the sun set. Final totals for the weekend for 10 guys: 124 keeper perch, none under 9 inches were kept...most were 11-12 inches and we caught a couple that were 14 inches. 19 walleye, 10 we were able to keep. All the keeper walleyes were over 15 inches and under 20 inches.

I'll be the first to admit that of the 10 guys fishing, only about 6 were "fishing hard". But we all managed to catch plenty of fish and have a great time. I hope this post helps! By the way, from the sounds of it, Hunters Point access should be finally ready to go for the rest of the winter...they really put a lot of work into it during the weekend.

I'm not totally sure. Which day did you see the group of guys? We drilled a lot of holes both days. I know we were west of Lakeside Reef...

We were at Hunters resort Saturday(1-13-06). We were driving down there road, and were the main road goes there was a 4-wheeler unloading there, so we continued to go strait. The access on that side was blocked off, so to the right there looked to be a road so we took it to the resort. When we were about to get out of the truck, a worker came out yelling and swearing at us. Told us we should not be here. I understand that we should not have drove there,but the way we got treated was not right. Anyone else have problems at this resort?

No never, they wanted to make sure you did not drive over the crack and kill yourself.

They were working on the roads, and did change the route out to the main lake a couple times over the weekend. The worker was just making sure you were safe. Nitti's have always been good to me and my friends.

This is an odd winter, and the resorts on the lake haven't gone through this is a few years. Just make sure you stop by the office/bar/restaurant each morning before heading out to make sure they haven't changed the roads and to also check the road conditions. I know Hunters Point has a map of their roads that is updated each morning if there are any changes on the front door to their bar you can check out before heading out.

Ya, a few weeks back my dad and I were trying to get back on the ice after the bridge by shore went out. One of their workers was very nice and wanted to help us, but his coworker, maybe manager, was very loud and yelling a lot at him to get to work on the bridge and not deal with us. I think it just depends on who you deal with, I'm sure they do a great job keeping people safe. Maybe just a bit stressfull, leading to the yelling and swearing when someone does something like take the wrong un-marked road....

I have fished there many of times, and never had a problem. I know this year has been more stressful than manyt others because of the ice conditions. The fishing has been good but i really fell like these guys are working there tails off to try and keep everyone safe. One person goes through and it gives that resort a pretty bad rep, especially if someone gets hurt or even worse dies. not sure i would want that on my concious to have someone die through the ice where i made a road for them. just my two cents

Never had a problem with those guys at Hunters. I have had difficulties with a place just north of that location. You know, guy says he has a road out there, takes your $7 bucks (at the time), you go out on the road to find it unplowed and only a half mile out, you come back and ask for your money back because you were not told that the road didnt go out very far, and they smile and say no. That was the last time I let anyone take "Liberty" with my money and time.

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
