Gull River near Pilager

3 posts in this topic

Are river sunfish attracted to the same bait and presentation as lake sunfish? What adjustments should I be prepared to make as I am planning an outing soon.

I fished the river before the cold snap and used regular jigs and waxies, eurolarvae, etc and caught em. Havent been out there recently but they were biting real real light last time. Plenty of them around and had to weed through em. Best of luck.

spring bobber and small 1/64 oz jig with euros, fish 4 feet of bottom and keep inching up slowly with little flickering of rod tip. Most of the sun fish are striking when your bait is at a dead still.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
