I was up in my wheelhouse a few weeks ago with some guys that rented a shack from them. 1st night I think they got 8 pout. All that was caught was smaller perch. That was the report everywhere though at the time. They came out and checked on us often and moved us a few times. Great service!

Four guys I talked to this morning were within a stone's throw of Winfield's shacks yesterday. They had some keeper perch and one 23 inch walleye.

I will be staying in there big ice castle this weekend so I will definitely let you know how we do. If you go to the Hunter Winfield website they have some pictures of some nice fish so they must be doing ok. I can't imagine they have gotten pictures of every nice fish either.

I took my wife and kids icefishing for the first time and we stayed at hunter windfield resort on sat. We didn't catch alot of fish but we had agood time it was cold i think it was around -40. We went to bed and woke up around 3:30am and it was starting to get cold in the shack.We ran out of propane so i went up to get another tank and they were all out. So we ending up leaving early. I sent them a email when we got home. They gave a refund of 100%. Very nice people and very good buisness. I will stay with them again.

B.P. Welcome to Fishing Minnesota.

As far as the house at Hunter Winfields catching fish you will need to factor in the weather fronts and how much you are willing to move around during the day. It is very hard and alot to except a resort to be able to put a house on a all day bite. These resort owners do thier best to have the house in a area that has a good bite but the fish can move from the morning bite to the afternoon to the evening. One very good way to maybe insure a better chance at more fish is to maybe fish the house for the evening and during the night and then again early morning. During the day I always like to move about other structure and search for more fish. This will help you have a better chance at a good day of fishing.

HenkelMJ, RogersMN, please do post a report as soon as you get home this weekend. I am staying at HW Sunday night for a couple days. I had the 8x24 booked and then they realized they had double booked me. So now I am in an 8x20. If they don't move the house for us, which they said they probably will, I might be in the same spot as you.

BP-

Hey, I was up at Hunter Winfields on Saturday night too. With my 2 kids. I have never experienced such hard blowing wind! We had a new house on skids (not the new wheel-house that they have...) they had just set it up when we got there and it was brand new...the wind was driving so hard that there was too much cold air coming through a few leaks in the house. we went up and talked to them about it - and they offered to let us stay in one of their cabins for the night. We opted to try again and went out and sealed a few of the leaks with some stuff we had around - and it worked enough to heat it up to a good comfy level. I am sure it was the unusually windy conditions - otherwise the house would have been fine in the first place. I was pleased they offered to let us use a cabin - and overall the service was what we hoped for. I will come back again for sure. They have very nice wheel houses and I am going to get the group I fish with out there next year for a weekend. I also like the fact that they dont seem afraid to move their houses around. smile.gif

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
