First Experience On Gull

5 posts in this topic

Hit gull on saturday for the first time ever. The wind was rough and seemed to be blowing from everywhere so I was limited to the bay I launched from (eastshore public access). I'm by no means a walleye guy, but I couldn't buy a bite! I used rainbows and redtails...I have a feeling if I would've had leeches I would've at least slaughtered the perch. I caught half a dozen bass (all about 12 inches), but they all came in a 20 minute time period, so the rest of the day was pretty slow. A hammer handle and a few perch is all else I was able to get. It's gonna take me a long while to figure this lake out...won't be able to hit it up again until winter though...hopefully I'll be able to make a couple trips on the ice.

Two of us did real well yesterday (Sunday) on the weed edges in 14' - 16'. We caught and released fish for 8 hrs. Rainbows worked as well as anything. The bite was better in the afternoon than the morning. 82 degrees on Sept. 23rd wasn't so bad!

Hey T.O.

I'm heading to Gull this weekend, mind if I pick your brain for a minute as well.... grin.gif I have fished Gull a ton in the past, just not at all for the last 3 years....always nice to see what the pattern may be.

Yup, that's fine. Just fire me an e-mail. I'll probably get to the reply tomorrow.

Thanks.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
