Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

I haven’t fished it but would use chubs like you mentioned if I did.

Good luck ozzie.

Hit up Gull again on Friday evening...got out a at about 7 or 7:30 and started trolling 6-8'.  The weeds are thicker than 2 weeks ago but still trollable.  We trolled until 11:30 with sunfish taking our baits until 9:45 then they stopped biting and we ended up catching 1 walleye 18.25".  Not what we were expecting but it was a beautiful evening to be out.  Does anyone ever do GREAT on full moon evenings?  I can't tell you how many times I have gone trolling during the full moon and have never had much success.  I seem to do better when the moon is partially covered opposed to when it is full.  Hope to try out there again this coming weekend into next week.  Good Luck and tight lines.

I have if you stay out late enough. Those walleyes love to chomp anywhere from sundown to dawn during a full moon. My best times for pigs has been after 1 am with a nice walleye chop on the water.

Full moon can be fantastic on Gull.  I generally fish it later like Rick mentioned hitting the late well after sundown.  A few reasons for this, the recreational traffic tends to be heavy until then and I find that the bigger fish often push shallow later.  For me 11-3 am is the best time.  When the moon is full I also usually do better with baits that give off flash.  So those chrome, silver or white sides generally out perform darker or more natural baits when the moon is out on clearer lakes during full moon.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
