My boss Is going to gull lake this weekend with his family

and asked me to point out a couple areas I would fish if I where going , having never been on the lake I pointed out a few areas with steep breaks and large sand flats that I would try.

but I am now thinking that may have been wrong thing to do be cause his experiance level is that of a beginner.

my question to every one is this.

is there a can't miss pattern on gull? what would you suggest

should I just send him with some spinnerbaits and cranks.

thanks for your help

was there last week and found all the bass on main lake docks and main lake reeds and some on the weed line but not as many on the weed line.

I love fishing Gull! It never dissapoints. I have done well on various methods, both deep and shallow, probably for a beginner, hard to beat a spinnerbait or a lipless crankbait for both ease of use and fish catching ability. Working shoreline weedlines will pick up bass, pike and the occassional weed walleye. I need to get back there.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
