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.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
