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.

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I bought a used boat and I had the dealer install my Lowrance HDS on the dash. There was already two Lowrance units that came with the Boat. One mounted in the bow and the other in the dash. So when the dealer installed my HDS, the networked it to the older unit from the dash. My sonar on the HDS would only work if the dash unit was on. I really don’t know the advantages of doing this?  Anyways, this past weekend I landed the boat and the dash unit wouldn’t power up. I checked and I did have power going to the unit. Hence no sonar. I had to go old school and caught 10 eyes! Lol so my question is how do I bypass the network so I can just run the HDS? Thanks!
