Are you getting there before march 15? That's when lake trout season closes. Other than that there isn't anything to fish for. Personally I think it's the most scenic lake you'll ever go to, but the fishing SUCKS!!! If you want to catch alot of nice trout go to either Saganaga or Gunflint.

Seagull's pretty much black and white right now. There was a fair amount of fire damage from last summers fires.

Well I'm one of the buddies. And since I'm a one trick pony when it comes to fishing and only know my Lake of the Woods any help would be appreciated. We will be up on Sea Gull the weekend of the 8-12 so we will be able to catch the Laker season.

Tip ups the best way to go? Set a line of them at different in various depths? Thats about all the strategy we have as of now. Is Sea Gull a bust for Lakers? Portage to other Lakes?

Thanks for the tip. Maybe we will think about portaging elsewhere. Is there any lakes nearby that have had luck? We thought about taking a day trip to either Peter Lake or Jasper Lake.

If you portage to saganaga you'll catch some nice lakers, and since it's on the canadien border you'll still be able to fish for walleyes and northern (and they both are BIG in that lake)

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
