1st time on Gull

4 posts in this topic

We have rented a house on Gull the last week of July. I know this usually translates to pretty slow fishing, but I will fish pretty hard just the same.

Any patterns, baits, locals, I should target late summer?

Thanks

Be sure to stop in for the latest reports. But you should be able to get a few walleyes rigging redtails along the humps and points. The bass and pike will be very active at that time too.

If you want to just catch fish I would go to the southern end anywhere on the lake past squaw point. There are a lot of fish down there. Mostly pike and bass but all can be caught fairly easily rigging up sucker minnows for larger fish or if you just want fish use fatheads or shiners. Walleyes can be a mystery on Gull and generally require you to get up early or stay out late. They also require a decent amount of searching for a few fish. If you stick to just outside the weedlines between 14 - 20 feet and work areas with pretty good drop offs you should be able to locate a mixed bag and possibly the occasional monster eye which sometimes lurk in those areas.

Just post again before you come up to Gull and I'm sure someone will let you know what's working. The lake changes throughout the year and can be tough at times. What's working now will probably be different in a few weeks.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
