I was talking to the new owner of Fred's Bait in Deer River about lakes to find bull gills. I don't like eating gills but love fishing for them through the ice. Anyways he gave me some info. on a lake and I'd like to talk to you in private about it. Drop me an email so I can get back to you about this lake.
Thanks,
Brian

Is this lake off Hwy#38 just North of Rapids?
Off the top of my head I am thinking of a lake that has special gill regulations, limit of 5. E-mail me and I will help you out.

THANKS for the info. Alaskander, do I dare ask where on this lake you were catching those bulls? Or at least let me know time of day/time of year. Nothing like a 'bull gill on the old noodle rod. And who says panfish, especially monster 'gills, ain't fun?

bmc...If you go out there just remember you have to cross one lake on foot to get to the lake you want to fish. There has been some traffic out there, so look for old holes. Once your out there look for the point where the two parts of the lake come together, right off that point is the deepest water-23ft. They will either be there, or now that we are getting into March they will scatter and move into the bays so look for them in 15 ft or less.

Alaskander,

Do I have to cross "little" to get to "big" or do i access "big" by the lake to the north of it? The first day we have temps near 30, and I'm off, I'm out there. I got gill-idis BAD!

BMC..Park your truck in a little parking lot off the colorful rd and walk across the colorful lake over the portage and onto the lake. You can get a map of that are that shows you the trails, if I can find mine I will scan it and email it to you.

      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.

      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
