Seagull or Saganaga next week

5 posts in this topic

I will be spending the week at Hungry Jack Outfitters and would like to take the father in law and my 6 year old on a day trip for some walleyes.

I have only been to this area once, last year for a couple days and have read some things about these two lakes for walleyes.

Seagull is a little closer, but if you could spend one day, or a half day on either of these two lakes, which would you choose? Where would you start? I am assuming my GPS with the Lakemaster chip will at least have the maps loaded for both of these lakes, I realize it won't be accurate 100%, but think that could at least keep us from getting lost. :-)

Some pointers for a BWCA are rookie are greatly appreciated, including which accesses to go to.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Being a rookie to the area, I wasn't aware of hp restrictions.

I see both lakes have restrictions so that pretty much rules out my boat. Well, maybe have to stay on Hungry Jack and try harder for walleyes. Didn't have any luck last year for walleyes on HJ.

I caught a nice 17" smallie off of the seagull lake public access last week if you like to shore fish. wink.gif. If your looking for the elusive walleyes sag would be your best bet. You should give Seagull creek fishing camp a call and see if you can get a guide. There rates are very reasonable and the guides are all very good and will put you on fish. grin.gif

I will have to check that out. I have never hired a guide. For some reason, it is a warped sense of reality probably, but I would almost rather try to find the fish myself and not catch anything, than to pay someone. Kinda dumb I know, but it makes it more rewarding when I actually am successful.

I read your comments in the other post about that service. I will check them out and see what it would end up being. It would probably be worth the $$$.

This was the first time i ever hired a guide and it was well worth the $$$. They charge 275$ and they take you fishing from 7:30 am to 5 pm. The only thing you need is a camera and you have to bring lunch for your guide. You should also bring rain gear( i learned this lesson the hard way frown.gif).

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
