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.

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
