Where to walk out of Craguns

6 posts in this topic

It is going to be my first time ice fishing out on Gull, I am going to be up there for a charity event. Just wondering if there is anywhere that I can drop a line within walking distance of Craguns. I am not going to be bringing my 4 wheeler, so any help would be appreciated.

Is there any locations in that area where I will have a shot at some nice crappies, any response would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

The shorelines around cragun's drop off pretty fast, so you wouldn't have to walk out very far. I know they set out there ice shacks right infront of the resort, less than 100 yards from shore. I don't know what they catch out there. The one problem is activity on the ice. There is a skating rink there, snowmobiles back and fourth over and over and over again. So you might have to walk farther down the shore just to get away from the people.

Yesterday were there.

Drilled about 30 holes, ice is more then 36"- used extension for auger.

Fished from 11am to 9pm at 6 to 32FOW, was very slow.

Tim, get away from snowmobile trail, if you can! But you have to walk a good mile or so...

Ended day with 6 perch and 1 walleye.

Any way it was a great day to be out.

Good Luck!

Thanks for your help, its looking like I am only going to be able to get a few hours of good fishing in. Its nice to have some kind of idea on a lake that Ive never fished. I will let everyone know how I did.

Thanks,

Tim

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
