DOES NOBODY FISH??? Sportland?!

18 posts in this topic

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!!

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
