S & W Bait

9 posts in this topic

Anybody know what time S & W opens during the week. There phone has been busy all afternoon. If they aren't open by 5 am is there another place around to get bait that early?

I believe she will get bait 24 hrs. a day if you ring the bell. (although it might not make her happy) WalleyeDan would know for sure. Dan you out there?

Hey thanks for the info. I finally got through on the phone and they open at 5:30. That will work so I won't need to ring the bell. Any reports or tips for the walleye? Depth etc. Last report I see is Dan's.

I just finished up a Looooooong day on the water with very little activity. But, I wasn't on Gull. I fish Gull so much, I get tired of it at times. But as today turned out, I wish I would have fished it. I was on Whitefish this a.m. and Mille Lacs this p.m.. Both won. I had a lot of people out and about last night on Gull and all we caught were 10-12 inchers. The night before was good for keepers though. Still working the 14-18 foot range and I have been using a 1/8 ounce jig and a minnow (Rosy Reds). Pretty good melt down today, but we still have a lot of ice. Watch out for the pressure ridge by Sandy Point and the one by Rocky Point, both have standing water around them.

Where exactly is Sandy Point on Gull lake? I have a basic lake map so maybe some reference like round lake or NW or something. I have some people that are meeting me up there and I want to give them a general idea of where I will be. Thank You.

Sandy point is located about half way down the west side of the main lake. There are two points along that stretch, it is the southernmost of the two.

Cool thanks for the reply. That would be on the 77 side instead of 371. I hope this snow is mild. Wife is already giving me grief about going up sat morning. I have one of Walleye Dans shacks reserved for sat night.

eurolarva,

I really hope you can make it because WalleyeDAn has some great houses and has been on fish for most of the winter. Plus with this storm I would predict that the bite should be very active. After all it is the last weekend to fish for walleye for several months. Good Luck.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
