Anyone heading to gull rock this weekend?

10 posts in this topic

Heading up Thursday night gonna pull the sleeper out west of gull rock, trying for gull rock reef. I hear that as of tonight that it's starting to get wet up there, probabley by Sat. it's gonna be messy. My camper is up off the ice so that helps. Gonna stay the night with my boy an his freind Fri. night. I hear gull area has been hot, anyone that has fished it recentlly, I'd appreciate some info on where to start.Looking for the mixed bag of fish. Hard to hit saugers over at twin island where I've been sitting in 20'for a mounth cause the eye's have been good to me. If you see a white camper with a gold stripe down the side with a black suburban stop an say Hi. Later boar.

We were going to head up and fish 16 mile, wondering what the breaker condition is by gull rock. I heard you had to go towards 12 mile then cut up to 16. If gull rock is hot it's kinda senseless to drive all the way up to 16 though. Any ideas on what the lake looks like now? Do we need wheelers with? Thanks!

My understanding is that if you have four wheel drive anything else is not needed, ya might doo alot of spinning with your wheelers, snow is pretty much melted an gone, probably pretty slushy which your wheelers could gain a foot hold, I do believe ya have to go 2mile west around the crack to get to 16, last weekend I heard 16 was slow. Its gonna be wet. Boar

I am going to setup Friday morning west of Gull rock about 10:00 am. We have a crew of 8 with 2 wheel fishhouses. One is green and tan, the other one is green and yellow I believe. We will have 2 blue crew cab ford pickups. Stop by for a cold one. We are staying until Sunday. When we setup Friday morning and I see you, we may stop by to see how you are doing. Our plan is to fish outside for an hour or so before setting up to 2 wheel fishhouses. Hope to see ya up there.

I will be around that way tomorrow! As of last night the bridge over the crack was still there and instead of driving around to 12 mile you could cross North of Gull Rock. Hopefully, the bridge is still in tomorrow as I will be going out to one of the rock reefs. I knew 1tofish would be up fishing because his mom said he was going up. Fishing has been really steady! It does not matter what color or anything! Good luck to all!

Yep, heading up tomorrow morning with Haugen. We will be in the vicinity of Gull Rock. Wobbler, what are you going to be fishing out of?

I'll be in my Red Ford Escape with a Frabill Ranger portable.

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
