After a brutal morning of 100 mph winds and cold air (and 1 walleye), things changed tonight. I had a man from Tennessee out on Gull and we did well. We ended up catching some nice fish, with the biggest being 29 inches. We also had a few in the 20 inch category and a number smaller. We Lindy Rigged all afternoon with chubs in 20-36 fet of water. The big momma ran and ran and after we landed her we took a few photos and released her in awesome shape. Caught her on a Viking Rig!

Dan I have to ask...What is a "Viking Rig"? Something purple and gold I assume.

Thanks Dan, I was just curious.

Going up to Wabedo and Little Boy on Saturday for a M.I. outing. I have not been out muskie fishing since I broke my collar bone in July. I am anxious to see how the plate and screws the doc put in me holds up.

Keep drowning those minnows.

Krats,

Good luck, hope the screws hold up maybe bring a screwdriver in the case you tie into the big momma. The minnows haven't had a chance to drown. I had my biggest of the year on Tuesday, a awesome 29 incher on the Viking Rig. The bite has been good, but the wind has been bad!

Take care,

Dan

Hey Dan, sorry it took so long to post this. Tom and I had a fantastic time fishing w/you on 9/8. We ended up having a great week and time up there. We knew nothing of the lake and your expertise worked that day and we continued to use your hints/ways and pointers you graciously offered to have one great week on Gull. Again a big THANX, and so everyone knows, WalleyeDan does a great job in guiding/finding and giving advice/pointers.

Hi Rick,

I had fun fishing with you two and I'm happy you had a good week, hope the ladies did too. Hope to see you again someday. We have moved into our own shop. Next time you are up make sure you stop in. We are located across from the water slide in Nisswa. We will be open for business very soon.

Thanks,

Walleyedan

Good Afternoon Dan.. Talked with you last Saturday at the gas station by Breezy pt... Your recomendations of were to fish and what to use helped. Thanks, We headed to the smaller lake you suggested north of 371. Did not have much luck. Your second suggestion on Pelican worked out, The 4 of us fished until 4am and did well trolling in 7 ft of water. I believe we caught 20+ walleyes and missed just as many.(It is amazing you can miss that many with treble hooks)All around 17 to 22 inches. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and to do that so freely. We will certainly keep you in mind when we plan or large company fishing outing in 2008 at Cragun's. We have used Dan and many of his guides for our company trips to Cragun's and I would highly recommend all of them... Dan truely wants you to enjoy fishing and it is not all about the money.. Thanks again

Dan is a heck of a nice guy, and a good guide too. I haven't seen a whole lot of him lately, but I still use many of his recommendations and techniques. I'm sure he'll land on his feet, and continue to provide the area with great information, and guide service.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
