Gull lake Ice Dec 11

1 post in this topic

I tried pulling my portable out onto Gull this afternoon... South end of the lake just below Squaw Point on the west side. I worked my way out about 50 yards... Found about 1 inch of frozen slush on top with about 2 incues of water below the frozen slush and then 2 to 5 inches of ice below the water... Conditions are still not very good. We need the water above the good ice to freeze. At about 50 yards out I started breaking through the top layer of prozen slush...Not a good feeling..

Also two snowmobiles crossed the lake last night just south of Squaw Point from the west side near the old Gull Lake resort... Pretty crazy if you ask me!

We just need more really cold weather...

Also someone is fishing right off Squaw point this evening and not far from shore...

Any other Gull ice reports?

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
