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

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
