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.

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Fishing with my father and my son on Father's Day hasn't happened in a long time...so this was fun.  Helped that the storms stayed south. 1/4-1/2 mile off the border straight out from the gap in 29-ish feet of water jigging worked for us.  Limits of 17+" walleyes by lunch both days, with a handful of slots for good measure.  Hardly any sauger, though.  Jig color rotated, so if something isn't working, change it up.  Black, gold, orange, pink, white, green, chartreuse all produced at one point or another.  Not everyone was catching, and moving 1/4 mile or even a couple hundred feet made a big difference at times. We didn't try it, but heard of spinners and crawlers working up shallow (6-10 feet) along Pine Island. Mayflies are starting to hatch.  Dad saw some floaters on the Rainy on Saturday, and I saw some in town at the gas station when I left Monday morning.

      Any current reports, crappies still biting? Going to give it a go Friday morning.

      Don’t forgot the requirement for non-resident anglers to wear blaze pink any time they’re on the water! 😆 My serious advice would be to visit the nearest bait shop. My experience is that they are always helpful in helping navigate the license requirements AND get you on some fish.

      Well the weather was a bit rough here until yesterday in Cass Lake.   Lots of storms and unsettled weather.   Still finding walleyes either in 8-12 fow or 17-21 fow during the day.  Leaches or shiners have been catching fish.  At night you'll find walleyes in 4-8 fow and willing to hit various crankbaits in various colors.  Lots of smaller eyes still being caught but nice ones too

      ya don't need a cajun, just the seasonings!!!!  and the rest of the fixins of course!!! but it would be fun with the real thing too!!

      We just got back from a week primarily fishing the east/south side.  I won't lie it was super tough, we didn't even mark fish for hours some days driving around the humps/shoreline breaks.  Usually its pretty good this time of year but this year it was brutal.  Few days we'd end up with 2 or 3 fish for half a day of fishing.  The tank at camp probably counted 35 walleyes cleaned for the week for 40 anglers.  Few slots but just not biting down that way.  Lots of pike came in and panfish.

      Tough bite for decent fish the past few days! Went out by myself this morning and switched tactics again. Trolled spinners/1/2 crawler and #4 gold Shad Raps on a 3-way rig in 24' to 30'. Had my limit of 4, 15" to 16" walleyes and a jumbo in the first hour! Released 5 other smaller walleyes also during the 2-1/2 hours that I was out. Cliff

      Went out yesterday for a little while, thought I’d just go close with the kayak given the time slot I had. Just planned on small gills and and bass, ( the normal catch in this place), but 2 18” walleyes supprised me.  A couple of loons were the only company I had while I was there. Lots of gills and bass as I expected just small in size.

      @Mike89 if I still had my traps I'd do a Crawfish Boil. Need some Cajuns to help me.
