Hillman Pass and Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Roughneck17SC

Went out of Hillmans this week in the dark, before crossing the heave one of the resort trucks stopped and asked if I had a road pass. he said he had just tracked someone down that didn't pay. I had and pressed on to hopefully find some fish. While fishing over the weekend, we discussed being stopped and the people that try to not pay for road access. What in the heck is wrong for these people??? confused.gif Road upkeep alone is worth the price of admission. Sure this year it isn't an issue but years prior were interesting to say the least. I am just floored buy these individuals that feel the rules don't apply. I would like to say that these individuals are the ones that need the help on the lake and the resorts have no problem helping none the less. I just don't get it!!!! AAAHHH

Anyway, fishing was darn good. 2 houses with 5 guys produced around 25 crappies and 5 keeper walleyes.

Friday night bite was real good, Saturday hit a brick wall, Sunday morning was as good as Friday night.

Was out of Hillmans but I didn't hit the trip button on my vechile so, I know where my house is but don't know how far out. It is over the heave and out I would say 2 some miles.

You would be amazed how many don't pay unless they have too. Just a drop box without a person collecting and maybe, just maybe 60% will pay. You end up with a box full of green paper, matchbooks, garbage and obscene notes telling you what you can do to yourself. Not always bad though because every few days someone will steal the whole box. frown.gif

Right now it is sad to the point of almost being comical watching people come into Hillman's to get some bait and ask where the best bite is on Hillman's road. Then they drive back to Agassiz and pretend to put money into his car trunk, drive out on the lake and then cross country back over to Hillman's road. A $40,000 truck pulling a $20,000 house burning up $15 of gas to avoid paying an $8 road fee. grin.gif

Remember no can ever charge you on the lake. It's all public. The only place you can be charged in crossing private land.

Probably the same folks that cheat on the slot and their possession.

I was up a couple weeks ago and arrived at about 2 a.m.(one of those things when you're sittin on a little lake catching nothing and decide to make the long haul to the big lake to redeem yourself) anyway when we got up the next morning we fished for a while and then went in to hillmans for more/fresh bait and bought a road pass, i'm glad we did too cuz shorty gave us some advice and we found some fish.

Seems to me that it would then make a lot of sense to hire someone to sit there and collect road fees. It would certainly pay for itself.

My thoughts as-well, if the number of trucks is correct he could pay some one hansomely and be ahead.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
