Tullibee

Recommended Posts

BuckSutherland

Anyone getting into a good tullibee bite yet? Thinking of heading up for the weekend and probably going out of Lybacks. Had my best luck last year on a pink sweedish pimple loaded with waxworms.

Do they school up this time of year, or does that happen more towards spring?

a friend told me that if you want tullibee you would have to head out into the mud flats in the middle of the lake. dont know how safe it is yet to be heading out there. he said use a spoon with a dropper hook about 5 inche below the spoon.

Try out of Lybacks. I caught a few there last year. However, the flats are the best location, but the ice is not safe yet as far as I know.

How likely is it to pull out tullies, perch, and eyes out of the same hole on Mille Lacs?

In the big pond, you never know what you're going to catch. But last year, with my underwater camera, I saw perch and tullies hanging together around the mud flats.

And yes, you can catch all 3 of those out from the same hole.

I pulled those 3 species from the same hole on 2 different occasions yesterday, once on Fisher's flat in the morning and once on Center Bar in the afternoon. Macho Minnow with minnow head, I was right up tight to the bottom edge of the flat in both cases.

i would say it is pretty common to catch all three out of one hole and have had it happen on a number of occasions.

LOL, the ones I landed were footlongs. The ones I lost at the edge of the hole were the bigger ones, maybe 16 inchers! grin . The footlongs will have to do, the fillets are in the brine now to be smoked for a Super Bowl party.

We got some out on Myr Mar flat last weekend....there were plenty down there. Nothing huge, but they're fun to catch.

Can I ask how many per hour? My experience is that they move pretty often and unless guys are catching them consistantly for a few days or unless you get on a huge school its just not worth chasing around for them until march...But I would so love to get on some now!

Hey Duck, if you don't mind sharing, what flat were you fishing on for the tullies?

Hey Duck, if you don't mind sharing, what flat were you fishing on for the tullies?

Most on Fisher's, a few on Center Bar. They do move around alot, not worth chasing on their own merit, but I was glad to get them and consider them a huge bonus. And frankly, I do terrible for them in March, my most consistent action for them is usually late January.

I always thought if I sat at the access and gave out samples of smoked Tullibee in the morning, told guys to save what they caught, then waited for them to come off and just happened to have some of the $99 electric smokers available, I could sell a truckful of them!

Lol alright. Never had smoked tullies before but everyone who has does seem to love it! Sounds like a good idea on your part.

& thanks for the info. Hopefully this will help keep the GF interested lol.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
