If I recall, last year about this time Gull started to heat up. Anything happening this year?

Overall it has been pretty slow yet. One of the guides was out there yesterday afternoon and boated about 9-10 walleyes. So maybe this is the start? Lindy rigs and redtail chubs in 14-18 feet of water on the north end of the lake. Maybe after this heat breaks it could get pretty good. We'll keep and eye on things.

Benfishin,

You are right on, the "bite" was happening big time last year at this time. We kept 9 last night (a few small ones in the mix) and caught and released about a dozen or so this a.m..

Thanks for the info guys. I'll be up Friday to Friday staying by the Shady Beach Resort. Just a couple of questions.

1) are you using any Jewelry (spinners, beads) on your lindys if so any color patterns I should look at?

2) how long of leaders do you use?

Thanks for any help.

Everybody's tactics are a little different. When I am fishing Lindy rigs with a redtail chub I usually use a leader that is about 4-5 feet long. Sometimes I'll add a bead for a little bit of color, but I am not so sure it makes a difference. Mainly just using fresh lively bait is the key. Sometimes spinners will work when pulling around a leech or nightcrawler. Good Luck.

I am not by any means an expert on Gull. I do fish this lake everyweek however I am still always looking for advice on a lake with so much structure size and boat traffic it can sometimes be a little difficult. I tend to work the windblown sides of the midlake structure. I like to use to use spinners on my rigs that I prefer to be at least 4'. My favorite color is any blend that uses white as its primary color however I am not sure how much that matters. I agree with Jason the key is to have fresh bait. I make sure my bait is alive and kicking at all times, it definately will improve your bite.

Lately I have been doing pretty well in 14 - 20ft with most fish being in 14-17 ft of water. I also prefer minnows as they seem to pick up less sunnies and things.

Thanks for the tips guys.. Jhays, If you're out this next week look for me. I'll be in a 17' red lund with a Evinrude 90 on it. we are staying over by the shady beach resort on the west side. It's almost gauranteed that someone in the boat will have something that says "Nebraska" on it, but don't hold that against us!

My wife and I are staying at the Gull Dam Campground Monday to Wednesday - My parents used to have a trailer at the Love lake campground and we used to do pretty well pulling raps around the bow tie flats. My question is: is there pretty good walleye fishing over by the campground anywhere or do I need to head out to the main lake. Also, we always went out at night but is there a bite deeper during the day? We have a sitter for this trip so I think night time is going to be more dedicated to beer. I fish the river (St. Croix) 99% of the time so any tips for lake fishing would be great! Thanks.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
