Fun on Gull

2 posts in this topic

Was able to make an afternoon trip on gull lake with walleyedan. He was a great guide, from his top notch equipment to his fishing knowledge. Within 10 minutes of having a line in the water I connected on a nice 23 inch eye. Here are a few photos of the our trip. The woman in the photos is my new wife and she wasn't sure she wanted to go out in the chily air.


As you can see it didn't take much to put a smile on her face.


Thanks again Dan, and the candle light walleye dinner for two was a great way to end the day.

Cool pictures. I'm happy we were able to catch some nice fish and I'm glad you were able to eat them while they were fresh. I hope to be able to fish with you two again. How about those Twins? I'm sure you were watching that one. Once again, congratulations.

Thank you,

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
