Spring/Summer Tullibee fishing?

Recommended Posts

lispeej

I know this has been talked about, but are Tullibees not fished much around the area much after ice out? How about BSL?

No, when the water warms they go to Billhorn Bay, in the deep side 80 ft of water. I have never heard of anyone fishing for them other than ice fishing and netting.

I would like to get some more for the smoker I just bought. I already smoked some up, but they went fast.

Anyone care to give me info on what is required and how folks net these tullibees?

Thanks.

Its probably in the regs as far as the procedure to mark nets, seasons, lakes, equipment,permits, ect.......but a call would be not abad idea.....this is late fall gig, and depending on the year as late as ice up. They are targeted when and where they spawn.....look to some shallow rubble/sandy areas next to the big basins they hang in.

Well, the season to net is in the fall, around deer season. The gill nets we used were 100 feet long. They cannot be deeper then 6ft. You need to check them daily. They need to be marked with a bouy and your name and license number.. You are allowed 1 net per license. They tullies like the flats in the fall when they are "running". Let me know if you want any other info. I can even help you find some good spots if you would like. Shoot me a PM if you want.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
