First time on Gull.....

10 posts in this topic

We're heading up to Gull this weekend fri. thru Sun. to try for some walters!! None of our group have ever fish it on the ice and want to see what the story is? There is so much structure on the lake we are having a tough time deciding where to start! Are any certain bars producing better than the others- north or south- deep or shallow? Anything will help.

Thanks guys-

SV

I have had decent luck all around grassy point in the 20 to 25 foot range. I was fishing all of last weekend it was slow but i did manage a huge 27 inch walter. Yes its still in there. If you stop at Sportland Bait they can show you where grassy point is, and they are always friendly. Good luck have fun and try to put as many back down the hole as ya can.

Thanks for the info SJS. That is some pretty nice looking structure along the northwest side of grassy point. I wouldn't mind getting to put back a 27"er myself!!! We only keep what we'er going to eat(no dinkers)!!! I'll post how we do on sunday-thanks again...

Our group was actually thinking about trying Gull for the first time this weekend as well (Friday - Sunday). We have it narrowed down between Gull or North Long (if we head to Brainerd) otherwise Reno or Mary (if we head to Alexandria).

We will probably make our final decision Friday morning.

Been on Gull pretty much all winter in about 30fow. Been doing real good the past few days. If I were you, Gull Lake would be my first choice.

I have been doing alright on North Long but the size is'nt the best. Lots of 11-12 inch keepers. Most fish I have released have been because they are on the small side, not the large.

Fished Gull Friday PM through Sunday AM. Did not catch a walleye over 13" or a perch over 9". The rock bass and eel pout did bite well.

Even with poor fishing, we still had a fun weekend.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
