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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
