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).

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
