Gull Lake

5 posts in this topic

We are staying at Maddens. New to Gull, but friends tell me early walleye is mostly the north end of Gull.

Long run (gas and time) to the north end of Gull - if the wind picks up not fun run either. Not looking for GPS coordinates - just some starting "areas".

Are the majority of the walleyes still up on the north end of Gull?

Looking at a map, where would one start in Steamboat or Wilson Bay for this weekend?

General depth, shoreline or midlake structure?

Thanks.

I would suggest that you get bait at Sportland. Jason is great to work with. Good luck!

Wilson and Steamboat both hold a good population of walleye's. Fish have for the past two weeks been in 13 - 17 ft of water near emerging weeds. Hard bottom (some rocks) is key. Fish may start to move a bit deeper..

I would also talk to Jason....Shiners have been the best bait for some time... I would think leeches will start to be good as the water slowly warms up...

Three of us got out Wednesday night and had a real nice evening of fishing. Finally almost no wind, warm, and the fish were very hungry. Kept 11 from 14-18.5, C&R a couple of dozen under that. We caught them from 12'-24'.

Have a great weekend.

Wind.

I do not have the ability to control my boat over structure in 30 mph winds. Fished Steamboat on the windy side and my son and I picked up some very plump 17" eyes. cool.gif

I notice a guy casting off his dock into 30 mph winds - thought he is out there for a reason. Worked 10 - 17 feet depths in front of this area and bam. I will take this kind of luck anyday.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
