Fishing Conditions: July 15, 2011

Gull Lake is bursting at the seams with baitfish!  There must have been an awesome hatch and I do believe this makes the walleye “bite” a little tough. Bass, pan fish and pike never seem to turn down a meal and this is holding true.  We are catching a lot of fish (bass, rock bass, pan fish, pike and some walleyes).  If you would just like some rod bending action, hold the boat in 15 feet and work the edge of the weeds with a minnow (jig it, Lindy Rig it or slip bobber it!), you will have plenty of action. Wilson Bay is always a safe bet for this type of action.

Until next time, Walleyedan

Fishing Conditions: July 8, 2011

We just got off the waters of Gull Lake after another fun, productive trip. The walleye action has been tough the last week to 10 days but we have switched our approach and have started to just “catch”!  We pitched Gopher Tackle mushroom head jigs (yellow) and yellow chartruse shade 3″ Gulp Alive minnows up into the cabbage weeds (8-16′). We caught a couple of nice walleyes, some northerns, a bunch of rock bass, quite a few largemouth, a crappie and some bluegills.  Lots of action!  The water temperature at the surface is around 77 degrees.

Until next time, Walleydan
