Great Walleye Bite- Gull Lake Report!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

Well after taking the day off yesterday, I just had the bug to get out on Gull again and chase some walleyes. Over the last two weeks our guides have been coming and going here at the bait shop. I just had to see if the reports I was hearing were true. Lets just say that today was awesome to say the least. Half the time I couldn't even get the bait to the bottom before I'd get a strike. The bass and walleyes were hanging out together on all of the spots I fished. 25-28 feet was the zone and Lindy rigs or jigs tipped with redtails was most productive. I wish that I would have had another passenger in the boat for some photos. All together I boated about 20 walleyes and a half dozen bass in a few hours. It really is an awesome time out there right now. I suggest everyone get out there and enjoy it. Our guides have a couple of openings yet this weekend if anyone wants to fish. Have a great time over the holiday!

Have the fish been relating to the early/late periods of the day or are they starting to bite anytime? I would love to get up there but sounds like an afternoon trip might be all I can swing... laugh.gif

Jason,

Thanks for the report! What size range were the eye's out there?

I was only out in the morning until about 10:00 am, but I was talking to one of our guides that was out there yesterday afternoon. He said it was just as good in the afternoon. I think a little wave action on the water might be the most important variable that effects the activity level. The size range varied. I didn't have anything huge but there were some nice keepers, 14-17 inchers. Then of course there were some small throwbacks.

Great report Jason. Sounds like the walleyes are going strong on Gull. My Dad and I were going to make it up there to fish and wondering if you were fishing any structure such as humps or points or do you have to find a weedline and fish it? What end of the lake seem to be the best?

Thanks in advance!!

I found most of my fish on submerged points. Sometimes nothing more than just a small knob on a large piece of structure. I caught fish on four different spots, so I think there are a lot of spots that are producing fish. The fish are going pretty good on both ends of the lake. As a rule I think that you will always find the fish on the south end to be a little bit better average size.

Great report Jason. I'll be up there in ~3 weeks for 4 days of riggin' with redtails on Gull. Hope the pace continues.

It is a great pace! Funny story today. One of our guides had an afternoon trip starting at 3:30. He left and about an hour later he pulled back into the bait shop and picked up a few more minnows. They had gone out to Gull and had their limit of 15-16 inchers then the group wanted to go bass fishing. I don't think it can get much better than that. Sure sounds like they had a good time. Hopefully it continues. We'll keep you posted.

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
