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

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
