Hennepin Island luck??

Recommended Posts

Hoffer

Taking my 2 kids up for the day this weekend. weare renting a house from Hunter Winfields. I guess they are out on hennepin island now. Anybody have any recent experience on this part of the lake? What should I expect? Mainly walleyes, mainly perch? Any chance of setting a tip-up for Northerns during the day? Thanks for any guidance. I will post a report on Sunday evening when I get back!!

hoffer, my bother spent Friday and Saturday on the northwest side of Hennepin in 24fow out of our perm. shack. They managed 6 walleyes, all out-side the slot and a few other runs. The perch bite was minimal but that can always change. Good luck.

Desperado and I fished on the SW side of Hennepin about 10 days ago. It was a tough bite weekend with the cold fronts piling up. We managed a few perch and 6.5" walleye, yes that is a six and half. We were fishing in 28ft. Tried higher and lower, but the fish weren't there. Came back to the same depth and found a couple more.

Hunter Winfield was just setting a few shacks there while we were fishing. People were in them right away. They were VERY nice shacks.

Jiggin and powerstroke - thanks for the reply!!

I am fishing out of one of the basic shacks - they are still built new this year - but not the cool new ones on their site - they were all booked already - but these should still be good. I am a little concerned that we may have tough luck o saturday too because it looks like a cold front is moving in on Saturday - but maybe if we get there during or just before the front moves through (supposed to get even colder on Sunday and Monday) we might be OK. i am just going up with my 2 kids - so i am not expecting a big bite - but a few rattles or flags would keep things interesting! By the way, how was the ice out there? i wil be just staying on the roads etc...but with my kids along - I just wanted to be sure the ice was good. Thanks again!

We went out form the PUblic access. I htink it was Cedar Creek . There was only 16-18" of ice ther. I say only because there were several 1-ton diesel pickups out there driving everywhere.

The ice is pretty good and should be building with no snow.

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
