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!

I can probably help you with shortening the learning curve. Shoot me an e-mail when you have a chance.

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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
