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.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
