Gull Lake Fishing

1 post in this topic

Just got back from the state B.A.S.S. Federation Nation tournament and have to say that I really liked Gull Lake - it really has nearly everything a bass fisherman would want - deep weedlines, slop, docks, topwater and spinnerbait action on flats and drop-offs, dirty water, clear water, etc. What a great fishery! This was the first time I had ever been on those waters and it won't be the last. Thanks to the Brainerd area for hosting this event.

Lake Alexander hosted the alternates tournament and it was an awesome lake as well.

On both lakes the fishing was very good - you had to work pretty hard for your fish but they were there for the taking. I bet it would be a lot easier if nearly 200 guys hadn't pounded it for a week prior to the tournament. I have no idea what weight won yet but I would guess it would have taken in the low-mid 20# range for a 2-day total. I know there were a lot of bags in the mid-upper teens.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
