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.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
