Not sure there are too many folks really pursuing them at this time. There are few incidental fish being caught by deep water perch fisherman, and those chasing walleyes in deep water transition areas. There are a couple of really strong year classes in the lake, as many as there have been in years.

Lyback's now has their road extended to the tullibee hole, and 41 feet of water, so there is one of the best options on the lake, short of going to the mud, or the deep transitions on the north end. It's the best of both worlds over that deep soft bottom, as you should also find some jumbo perch mixed in. Access is limited on the north end , but there were allot of tullies caught there in Feb. last year.

Good luck !

Has anyone been having any luck targeting tulibees lately? I just recently tries in about 38 ft, but only ended up with one after 4 hrs on the lake.

Glad to hear they are starting to bite! I marked and saw tons of fish  on the cam last weekend but I could not get them to bite.. I was also in 31 ft on the north side, after starting out on the south end in 38 ft.  I might have to give it one last try this weekend.

 Thank you for the advice.

Where on the North end did you go out of?  Last weekend my son & I went out of lybeck's and Terry's.  Marked a lot of fish but only got one tullibee and one jumbo perch that are in the smoker now.  Anyone know if there are any roads open on the north end I can drive out of?

Stick in Mud

We caught a few tullibee last weekend, and probably would've caught more if we weren't using very large spoons to attract aggressive walleye.  We had multiple fish on the screen, chasing the lure up 10-15 feet off bottom, disappearing quickly, reappearing, then a massive school of red that made you think the Vex was broken, etc.   Probably tullies. :)

We caught all of ours and saw almost all of them off the deep edge of the mud, about 31-32 ft.  I suspect if you had the interest and spent the time, you could punch a lot of holes and find some.

I'm not sure if Myr Mar still has its bridge out past the first crack; that's where I was out of last weekend.  Another new crack showed up on Sunday, heading south towards the main lake, but it wasn't that big.  If you're curious about heading out of there, give them a call to make sure they haven't removed the bridge. I wouldn't be surprised if they had.

I fished out of Hunter's Point last Saturday for the Perch Extravaganza and targeted tullibee. I fished some of the deeper areas as close the edge of the flat as I could get. 33-35FOW is where we caught fish. Between 3 guys and a matter of 3hrs fishing we managed 17 tullibees over 16" ad quite a few under that we released. Small jigging spoons like forage minnows (key was no rattles) and also 5mm tungsten jigs both tipped with either minnow heads or larva. It was mayhem when the fish would come through. We had multiple triples in the time spent fishing. Also managed to catch 3 jumbos right around 11"-12" and some 14"-16" walleyes. Hoping to make it back up there a time or two before ice out to find some more fish.

Good luck,
-Zander

By the way, we took the wheeler out of Hunter's point but there was a nasty pressure ridge that a Ford Explorer fell through. We were able to safely cross in one location with the wheeler but please use caution. This ridge will not be a problem if accessing the lake from the west/northwest side.

      Would any of you know if this location will be open this weekend? I'm just looking to explore the creek and really want to just get in a creek/river with my waders

      I was just thinking about this the last couple of days. Can't wait for our 4/15 trip. I've been tracking ice out in Baudette since we've been going up. Here are the past 9 years.      My guess is it will be closer to that 3/24 date for ice out in Baudette which would put ice out at Birchdale maybe a week sooner.

      That's one of the spots I've fished. My buddy lost 3 airplane jigs there before he looked down the hole and saw a standing power pole.🙄

      If you are set with Middle Spunk I'd jig for sunnies/crappies (or chase northerns).   Middle Spunk is heavily developed.  I avoid it for that reason but if you're going to be there anyways, you could certainly find worse lakes.  (my two cents are there are too many tubers/wake boarders in the summer which probably means winter is the better time to fish it...)   All three spunks can pretty good for fishing but all have heavy fishing pressure...  They all three are pretty much panfish/northern lakes.  (That usually means fishing can be boom or bust.) Upper (or Big) Spunk (which is actually the lower of the lakes looking at a map...) has the most interesting structure in it (humps, big bulrush island, etc... and a couple of pretty neat little bays in the summer) I personally prefer lower spunk.--probably half of the lake is undeveloped bulrushes.

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      Decent panfish lake. They would be my target kicks out some sporadic bites all year. Not much for a walleye lake they get stocked quite often but for some reason never take off. Don't rule out chaseing  Tullibbees. Every winter she gives some up. Piles of deep water out there she can be a tough one. I personally prefer Upper  easier to break down compared to Middle good luck!

      Heading up to Avon to fish Middle Spunk lake this weekend. Looking for any advice or insights for fishing this lake and what to target.
