Any advice on Gull?

4 posts in this topic

We plan on heading up to Gull on Friday, and then fish the tournament on Saturday. We'd like to catch some fish though on Friday night, and I know nothing about the lake itself.

Could anyone offer any advice as to where to find some walleyes, or even crappies? Any advice is appreciated! You can e-mail me at mike_dogg412@hotmail.com if you'd like to keep it private, or you can respond here too.

I was out last night, and we caught 6 walleyes and missed a hand full. Our house was in 16-18 feet, but I have talked to some different people that have been doing well deeper also. Deep as in 40+ feet. In 2 weeks, I have only caught 1 fish one fish on a jig, and the rest (25+) have been on set line shinners....good luck

Hi Mike, Tim hit the nail on the head. We've had the same results over the last week. We have continued to catch a few along the weed edges but some are getting them deeper. Shiners are turning more fish lately. The north half of the lake has been the most productive for us during the last few days. If you want to stop in on Friday we can point out a few spots that have been decent lately.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
