Tully Lake Saturday - Who's in?

23 posts in this topic

From the north - Take Tully exit off Rt. 81 rt. 11A South across the street on to Lake Rd. Continue south on Lake Rd as it loops around and take your first left on Wetmore Rd. Follow this south to the end and take a left onto Saulsbury Rd. and take the first right on to Friendly Shores Drive stay straight on this road and at the end of Friendly Shores Drive the parking area for the lake is on the right.

Been a while since we hit this and it should be fun, bluegills, crappies, perch, largemouth, pickerel,white fish and yes walleyes...

Lee - It's the right call with the snow dump were getting up here now and points north are getting blasted.

There is a convenient Burger King Restaurant right across from the off ramp off 81 at Tully for breakfast. I will be there at 6:30 a.m. Hope to see you there...

Thunder the Diner your thinking of is long gone. That place was closed when I moved out of Tully last year, nobody stays in that spot very long.

Weather should be fine....

Jay, I have some jigs that need your attention (paint) if you can? These are some old jigs that you just can't get anymore and think they would be great for perch, Tank might even know what I few of them are and you guys are welcome to some of them if you want.

See everyone in the morning, I might be a little late so don't wait for me if I'm not there by 7am. I'll be dragging my [PoorWordUsage] right behind you. I'm really thinking about hitting the far end of the lake if the snow isn't bad, there is a great flat that should be holding some perch. I've done good down there in the past.

Ok ladies, not sure if the BK is open at 630. If its not we can slip under the highway to that little convience store and get some of those horrible pre-made breakfast sandwiches and road-tar coffee... cool

Also i'll be auctioning off a custom one of a kind cedar ice-scoop at noon...

Wish I was with you guys in the worst way!!! Haven't been around since last week. Seems the visits to Tammi's and her being with her Gram at the Hospital was all it took. Guess my reisitance never got up to par after the stomach bug. (let's blame it on the gardening). After cooking a big meal for her Dad's family and cleaning up, I went down hard with the flu Sunday night. Just like a light switch was thrown. Couldn't even get out of bed. Spent 4 days at her house. Still weak and coughing up junk. I'm going fishing Monday no matter what!

Todd, get in touch. I'll meet you for the spikes, most all of mine died. This year has been [PoorWordUsage] on me. Figures, bought new gear. Should hav bought a motorcycle, we'd be ice fishing in June! I miss the whole ugly lot of you! lol

OK, seriously, who's free this week?! Sniper?

Tim, I'm going to try the place we've always talked about in Tully this week or next if the weather permits. Somebody get in touch, I'm actually watching TV!!!!

Ray - Don't worry about it Tully was pretty much dinkville as far as fish caught a few nicer gills when Jay found a nice little area before he left. Had a good time with the gang and really enjoyed my new sonic hole hopper, Thanks John B. I feel like I was sight fishing a bit but I am very pleased with the operation of the hopper, the 6 gallon bucket with a 5 gallon bucket insert was the perfect height.

It was nice fishing with Lee, Dark Cloud, Tank, Tuzzy, Todd and Frank. Here's ome pics of the better fish I caught..

Timmy - I had a feeling that area would pay off. It was a hard choice to leave some fish for hopefully more fish but we are very glad we did!

Tank and I had a ball this afternoon. 3 o"clock hit and the sunfish were on fire, almost non-stop. Every once in a while you had to cut a new hole.

The fish were averaging on the top end of the sunfish scale. I caught this pig while on the phone with Lee...

Quite the maiden voyage with the new traps...

p2212807.jpg

Had to weed through alot of small perch but there were some good ones also...

Todd - good luck today! Try and take better picts than old shakey hands Timmy. We are runnin slow here today - up at 430 yesterday and on the ice till almost 6! Lots of walking and drilling also. Probably head south for the afternoon and see what we can find... Where is AW???

Fullmoon - Im not a doctor, but I did sleep good last night - you need more fresh cold air. These bugs and illnesses dont stand a chance if you icefish more cool

DC - Thanks for suggestion. Hope to get out tomoorrow since I'm feeling a lot better than I did. Not 100% but... Didn't order any jigs from that guy since I got sick before I had time. YOu got the email list, right? Got to work on the other plan sometime.

Where to go? Think I'll check the forecast and see who may head out tomorrow and/or Tue. Anyone?

Sniper - Never been there. Get in touch, maybe we can take a shot at it or someplace else. Guys have my # or email me [YouNeedAuthorization]@yahoo.com

Sniper and Fullmoon...I am up for some fishing tomorrow. I got a line on the South end of Skaneateles. It is virtually untouched and ready for some fishing. IMy buddy owns a camp on that end of the Lake. He said he was out on the ice walking around and talked to a couple of fisherman that were getting nice fish. I am not going to post what they were catching, but let's just say I was grinning from ear to ear grin

Otisco is pretty much a waste of time. I used to fish it a lot when I lived in Skaneateles. Dink City, but lots of action. The Pigger Lakers are also being had on Owasco in DEEP water!!

Westy, you needs to get out of the kitchen more!! Lee I almost went back to the area I was pulling the nice perch out on the way out. Todd, you must have taken all the fish with you as they stopped biting about 15 minutes after you left. FYI, I have the Navionics Gold and as I went to mark the perch spot that was 7 feet with 13-14 ft all around, I discovered that the lake map was as detailed as one could wish for. Unbelieveable the amount of detail. I guess I should look before we go on some of the other lakes as well.

    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
