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).

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
