Tullibee

Recommended Posts

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?

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.
