Gull Lake Accessibility

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

How likely is it that gull lake will be accessible on march 24? Or because of all the snow we've gotten will it be too slushy by then to even worry about it?

I live on the west side of the lake and there is a lot of snow after this last storm. It was not very easy driving my truck out to my fish house last Monday after the fist snow storm. We did get the fish house off the ice but it was a challenge. After this storm I really doubt if you could drive a 4 wheel drive truck on the lake. A snowmobile is probably the only answer. I don't think we will be able to drive on the lake by the 24th but we shall see. Will need a major warm up for that to happen...

There is alot of snow at this point!

I'd be fishing out of the access on the eastside of the lake. It wouldn't bother me to have to walk out because I wouldn't have to go out very far. But I'm just wondering if the shoreline ice will be stable or will I have to rig something up to get across some open water?

I would say that the weather is going to be warm enough here on out, and after this last storm, I agree that a sled will be the only motorized way to go.

Keep in mind the culvert in hole in the day. By then you might be seeing some open water.I would bet there will be a fair amount of slush, but until the snow is gone the ice should stay. When it melts it will find the cracks and cause erosion, but the ice in general, if not sun beaten shouldn't become too honeycombed.

You might have to bring a canoe though if the sun hits the spot hard...?

Also keep in mind that the walleyes run in the streams around the second week of April, give or take a week, northerns run prior to that. smirk.gif

Keep off the ICE! Let the fish do there thing for a few months with out being disturbed. I'm sure your freezer is full anyway. LOL, Do what you want, but be sure to where your water wings.

I think my ice fishing is done for the year...I was on the canadien border this past weekend and was walking through slush and 2 inches of water...not so fun.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
