Great Fishing Experiences on Gull Lake

Gull Lake covers 2240 acres with 11.5 miles of shoreline.

You will find Walleye, Northern, Sunfish, Bluegill, Crappie, Perch, and Largemouth Bass. With abundant weed cover lining a good percentage of the shoreline, most species are provided with excellent habitat for spawning and feeding.

Fishing the weed lines for Walleye and Northern is a good bet if you’re okay with back trolling, drifting, or even up to some bobber fishing with a jig minnow combo. Keep in mind the lake is actually managed for Walleye. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reports the lake has a fair number of “good sized” walleyes, with a good range of sizes and year classes.

In 2006, the DNR also lowered the daily limit of Sunfish and Bluegill to 5 in an effort to maintain quality of pan fish is currently holds. Gull Lake is now one of Minnesota’s premier pan fish lakes with daily limits of the biggest “pannies” most have ever seen.
