Are you serious??? Did you look at a map before you posted this???

No.. im kidding.. north of brainerd on 371, it's where you will first see gull lake on the left. Cant's miss it. look for signs...

Ernies ice road?? The best I can tell ya is "Ernie's" is north of brainerd also... go north untill you see a gas station and a bar called Bada Bing take a left on gull dam road and a couple miles down you will see a sign for ernies. if you get to a double arrow you went too far.

hope this helps

If you go in to the DNR website and click on lake finder and put in Gull Lake you will find out where Hole In The Day Bay is . I believe it is in the Northwest portion of Gull.

Good Luck Fishing!

Just go to the Dnr LAkefinder website. Even though you are looking for Gull lake, type in "Round Lake" and then look for topographic maps. Between Round and Gull is Highway 371 - go up the highway less than a mile and you will see an Eastern bay on Gull Lake. This is Hole in the Day Bay. Access is off of Ojibwe Road (also called County Road 115)

Access is off of Ojibwe Road (also called County Road 115)

Hole in the day access is off of Co Rd 115, but not off of Ojibwa Rd. It is a little screwed up how they named the roads. Co. Rd 115 starts as Ojibwa Rd. on the south end of Round lake, but turns into Nashway Rd. once on the north side of Round.

This is the easiest way I can explain on how to get to the Hole in the day access. While northbound on Hwy 371 you will first see North Long Lake on the right side. Continue north and you will see Round Lake on the right hand side. Across the Hwy from Round lake you will see a few resorts on your left hand side, they are Interlachen, Gull Haven, and Bay Colony. About 1/4 mile north of the resorts you will see signs for Co Rd. 115 (Nashway Rd). Nashway Rd. is a right turn, but if you turn left at this intersection it will bring you one block right to the landing.

      I didn't find it, just passing the info of a post I saw on Craigslist. One would think if they could access the information, it would be a done deal.

      Any reports on Grindstone lake? What have y’all been catching and what size?
    • leech~~
      Couldn't you find any contact info or was the battery dead?

      You’ll like em.  And these temps are exactly the reason to invest in gear like that.  I just spent the entire day out fishing in mine.  Temp topped out at 5; wind gusts and snow.  Half the time in the open and half in a poorly heated flip over.

      Post on Craigslist that a person found a phone on North Center lake.....under sporting goods.

      Cars seem to be going to all areas of the lake.  Very light traffic.  I wasn't home this weekend so I don't know what was going on.

      Shiners are hard to find right now. If you can get smaller suckers those worked good.  I fished 32ft off edge of mud flat last weekend. Everything we caught was on Bobber or rattle reel. Tried everything from tinglers to rippin raps last weekend for jigging, no luck.  The extreme cold did not help.  I usually do good jigging. I usually fish 3ft off bottom that deep.  Every fish we did catch was over 25 inches. 4 total the whole weekend. Missed a few others. Rattle reels worked well. Orange glow seemed to be a good glow Jig.

      1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!

      Liberty beach 20 dollar weekend pass with free drink token lol. I ended going out of hunters to the mud flats last weekend.  Didn't see liberty beach sign until next day. Not sure how far there roads go out. Hunters was having problems keeping roads open due too cracking.  But they always had options to get in.  1 hour to get off lake Sunday as center road was closed.  Lots of people going out and some of the people were driving too fast on the roads. I was going 10 mph hauling my wheel house and had a guy pass me on way in with a tandem so... It is was it is.

      Thanks, guys.  I ended up going with the Striker Climate bibs and jacket.  Ultimately I wanted things with removable liners so I could use them in late fall and early spring as well, even as late as fishing opener.  I searched high and low for the Clam Ascent stuff, as I wanted the free boots , but nobody has the jackets in 2X or 3X, only the bibs were in stock.  The store in Roseville that sells guns and skis had 30% off all ice fishing clothing which made the Striker stuff a bit easier to swallow since Striker jacks the price up for extended sizes.  I ended up buying the Combat gloves too.  Haven't had a chance to use any of it yet, and probably not looking great with the single digits coming up later this week and plans on the weekend.  At least we're making ice!
