Help me put some people on fish, please

Recommended Posts

I am looking to get some info on Gull Lake. My sister just told me that she, along with some friends of hers, are going to be staying @ the Quarterdeck Wed. into Sun. 6/22-26. She asked me if she could borrow some tackle, and I am happy to do so, but she hasn't really fished in 20 years or so, so I'd like t o see her catch a fish or 2 (or 10 laugh.gif). I am thinking panfish or pike, since they will probably bite most readily. The website for the Quarterdeck has some general info., but I would appreciate any other help I can get...

This time of the season, it's time to chase the pike and bass or panfish. Walleyes can be caught but can be a struggle at times. The best easy technique for bass and pike would be to troll or cast a spinnerbait. Fish the nicest weedbeds you can find, you should be able to catch fish over the tops and along the edges of the weeds. 6-12 feet is a great depth to start looking. The big part of Gull, where the quarterdeck sits has some nice fish but often fewer numbers. For better numbers and better action I'd recommend Wilson and Steamboat bays on the south end of the lake or opposite of the Quarterdeck is Love Lake. Love is also worth a try. For bass a jig/plastic worm is tough to beat as well. The bass and pike have been hitting pretty good lately, so stop in when you are up and we'll clue you in on the latest. Have fun.

Why don't you have her call Walleye Dan. The she won't have to worry about tackle, presentation, or location. She and her buddies can get out on the water, catch some fish, and probably have a pretty good time. He is also a big time celebrity. (He is already unable to see the little people as shown on Minnesota Bound. He asked me a question on the tape, the cut away before he got my smarta$$ answer.) grin.gif Cheddarhead

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
