Gull

6 posts in this topic

We will be on Steamboat Bay this weekend and looking to get on some walleyes. It sounds like the weedlines at 16 - 20 ft of water are producing.

Will we have a chance in this part of the lake, or are we better off getting to the main body? Live bait vs. trolling cranks?

Any thoughts appreciated.

The walleye are starting to show up all over now along the deep weed edge. You can either pull lindy's or use a jig and minnow. Fat Heads or Red tails are working the best.

Our guides have been on Gull quite a bit over the last few days. Sounds like the walleyes are starting move out a little. They've been catching them in 16-26 feet mostly on Lindy Rigs and redtails. Some guys are getting a few on jigs too. We've been fishing the north end more but there are some great spots right down there in Steamboat. Just keep moving till you find them. Good Luck.

Thanks Guys.

Does anybody know what the bottom is like in this area? Gravel or Sand?

Gull has a lot of sand bottom but you will find some areas that have some rock and gravel.

Thanks Jason. We'll have to stop in for some leeches and/or red tails

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
