Where to walk out of Craguns

Recommended Posts

Bigtime22

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

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thank you.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
