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.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
