Has anyone heard if the Gull Dam will be open for fishing seeing as the campground will be closed?

Just like always.

Too bad the campground will be closed. Maybe we should fence up local parks next.

Three words: Write yout legislator.

Maybe some day, our legislators will actually spend OUR money on legitimate and rewarding causes . . . .

I wonder if the state government is going to try and change the Constitution to read,"A Government for the government by the government. It seems more and more they are making decisions that they want, not what the people of this state and nation want. What to cut so they can spend our money the way thay choose. And it is OUR MONEY. Time to get the pen out and write the Leg,s. It kind of seems the pen is'nt as mighty as the sword any more, but can't quit now.

I read that the boat access at the Gull Recreation area will remain open.

I wonder if they will continue to charge since the operation in general will be shut down. Anyone heard?

I love the location of that landing but ever since they "fixed" the boat landing, it is a real pain in the neck and a safety hazard for sure. I've seen guys back in trying to get their boat off or on the trailer and with having to back their truck in to the water so far, they have to try to jump from their truck to the dock. I saw one older guy almost take a bad fall. I hate to pay for such an inadequate ramp.

Maybe if a different entity (state or county) takes over the landing, something could get done about fixing it correctly.

About the campground as a whole, my guess is we will see some change in the decision to shut down the campgrounds at Leech, Gull and possibly Winnie before the fishing opener. I heard there are legislators working on it.

Im pretty sure the state gov. has nothing to do with the federal campgrounds. Its a shame, there nice campgrounds. Apparently there is still a chance they will find some money to stay open. Any out door or recreational funding is the first to go when the budget ax comes down.

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
