Are you getting there before march 15? That's when lake trout season closes. Other than that there isn't anything to fish for. Personally I think it's the most scenic lake you'll ever go to, but the fishing SUCKS!!! If you want to catch alot of nice trout go to either Saganaga or Gunflint.

Seagull's pretty much black and white right now. There was a fair amount of fire damage from last summers fires.

Well I'm one of the buddies. And since I'm a one trick pony when it comes to fishing and only know my Lake of the Woods any help would be appreciated. We will be up on Sea Gull the weekend of the 8-12 so we will be able to catch the Laker season.

Tip ups the best way to go? Set a line of them at different in various depths? Thats about all the strategy we have as of now. Is Sea Gull a bust for Lakers? Portage to other Lakes?

Thanks for the tip. Maybe we will think about portaging elsewhere. Is there any lakes nearby that have had luck? We thought about taking a day trip to either Peter Lake or Jasper Lake.

If you portage to saganaga you'll catch some nice lakers, and since it's on the canadien border you'll still be able to fish for walleyes and northern (and they both are BIG in that lake)

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
