Seagull or Saganaga next week

Recommended Posts

CaptainMusky

I will be spending the week at Hungry Jack Outfitters and would like to take the father in law and my 6 year old on a day trip for some walleyes.

I have only been to this area once, last year for a couple days and have read some things about these two lakes for walleyes.

Seagull is a little closer, but if you could spend one day, or a half day on either of these two lakes, which would you choose? Where would you start? I am assuming my GPS with the Lakemaster chip will at least have the maps loaded for both of these lakes, I realize it won't be accurate 100%, but think that could at least keep us from getting lost. :-)

Some pointers for a BWCA are rookie are greatly appreciated, including which accesses to go to.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Being a rookie to the area, I wasn't aware of hp restrictions.

I see both lakes have restrictions so that pretty much rules out my boat. Well, maybe have to stay on Hungry Jack and try harder for walleyes. Didn't have any luck last year for walleyes on HJ.

I caught a nice 17" smallie off of the seagull lake public access last week if you like to shore fish. wink.gif. If your looking for the elusive walleyes sag would be your best bet. You should give Seagull creek fishing camp a call and see if you can get a guide. There rates are very reasonable and the guides are all very good and will put you on fish. grin.gif

I will have to check that out. I have never hired a guide. For some reason, it is a warped sense of reality probably, but I would almost rather try to find the fish myself and not catch anything, than to pay someone. Kinda dumb I know, but it makes it more rewarding when I actually am successful.

I read your comments in the other post about that service. I will check them out and see what it would end up being. It would probably be worth the $$$.

This was the first time i ever hired a guide and it was well worth the $$$. They charge 275$ and they take you fishing from 7:30 am to 5 pm. The only thing you need is a camera and you have to bring lunch for your guide. You should also bring rain gear( i learned this lesson the hard way frown.gif).

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.

      Starting a new thread for 2018 Pike River Hatchery progress. No new news today. Cliff

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.

      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck

      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)
