DOES NOBODY FISH??? Sportland?!

Recommended Posts

daddyducker

It seems that nobody fishes Lower Cullen anymore.

I guess that's good in ways but I would really like some info about what's happening out there this year.

I'm in the St' Cloud area and don't make it up that way very often, but I want to get up and give it a whirl.

It's one of my favorite lakes...everyone has 'em!

Somebody drive by the d*mn thing and let me know what is happening, better yet, get out there for a day and check it out for me.. HA HA!

Any info is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks!

not to mention I have posted a couple of times this year about the lake and no replies.

maybe I should take that as a hint and just do it regardless of ice condition!

Our ice conditions are pretty good all over. I haven't been out there myself and was hoping someone would reply with first hand experience. But I have heard a couple of reports. Sound like they are getting a few crappies not a lot but a few. A few pike too. I think with the walleyes still plugging away on Gull thats where most anglers have been. Usually when the walleyes shut down they switch over to crappies. I'm guessing that'll happen real soon. You'll start to read more crappie reports in the next couple of weeks.

Sometimes it's hard to "read" sarcasm. It sounded rude when I read it too. Now days with people asking for GPS coodinates to hot spots and all,,,,,,

I took it as sarcasim but it usually doesn't translate well over the computer......but I noticed he had asked about this lake a little while back and there never is a reply.....but I took that as I should check this lake out as nobody wants to talk about a hotbite while it is happening right!! Good Luck this weekend...I will be searhcing for crappies from 6 to Gull this weekend on some of the local lakes......

I read it for what it was... sarcasm. I thought it was loud and clear. Daddyducker helped me out with information that helped me catch fish last summer and I'd be glad to help if I knew anything. But I don't know squat... sorry.

Not trying to start anything guys, I'm just old school I guess, when I go fishing I just grab my stuff and go see what I can find. When reading all the posts on various sites it just seems that people want exact locations and details etc. If you have lived in this area all of your life and have seen the growth you would understand more.

Good Luck.

Lunger...sorry I blew up.

I was coming back with sarcasm as well as the original post.

If I was mad/rude to someone on here, they would probably just have to boot me off of the site completely.

I hear what you are saying about the area and sometimes I feel the same way about people wanting you to hold their hand and almost punch their holes for them, but I have to keep in mind that most every one on here asking about info, has at the least fished the area, maybe not the perticular lake but the area.

It's American nature; to get as much as possible for free.

And just so I am clear with everyone else...if I have any info that is beneficial, I will give it. I may not give you my honey hole but I will give you tips and safety type info.

Daddyducker, I got out there yesterday and did pretty good. The fish were 2 to 3 to a lb. Nothing to brag about but iced enough keepers for a meal and tossed some back.

Hey that's awesome.

I made it out this past Sat. morning and it was tough.

I found them, read them but couldn't hardly buy one.

Glad to see that the ice is good enough to drive on.

It looks like maybe a full sized truck could make it out but there is about 4 in. of white ice on top from the slush.

Everything below that though is good.

I might have been off the "spot" abit but the fish weren't hitting anything real good.

The key seemed to be "if they would chase they would usually hit.

I picked up 3 in about 2-2 1/2 hrs.

Don't know about you DUCKJ, but they were anywhere from 6 to 15' off the bottom.

The ones further up was all that I could entice.

Good luck!!

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...
    • Wanderer
      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.
    • Wanderer
      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
    • Wanderer
      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
