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

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
