channel from gull to round lake

6 posts in this topic

For your information. Thought I would launch boat at gull access this morning and go thru channel to round, big mistake! Going into channel from Gull there is only about 4" of water at most, grounded myself and wind was pounding in from west, got unstuck fortunately , waves were pounding over the transom. Go to round access and launch, its shallow, you will get feet wet launching and loading boat, hip boots would help and keep you dry.

I noticed this winter that the channel seemed to be frozen solid. I don't ever recall seeing that. In fact, there is usually open water on the Round lake side, but once it froze there was never anything open. Possibly because of how shallow it is. Not a good situation. We need some precip, but we are down so far that it will be really tough to make it up. Isn't Lake Superior down like 1.5 FEET since last year?

There is an article in the paper today saying Gull Lake is at a "summer high" level right now. I would think the level would be the same in Bishop's creek.

I haven't read the article, so that would mean it is low for Spring correct? Since the water drops during the summer. At least that is how I would read it, having not read the article.

I read somewhere last year that Lake Superior lost the equivilant of a Mille Lacs Lake's worth of water last year.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
