campsite 455 has excellent shore fishing , lakers on the north side of the campsite and pike on the other side. i always bring in frozen suckers minnows(layered in a small cooler) for shore fishing (slip sinker set up) (you can also walk to the end of the point and cast out towards the left you'll catch lakers))))) lures & colors , spoons- little cleos are great this time of year , my #1 trolling lure is the 7" original rapala blk/gld with a leader gets down about 10' prefect for ice out lakers . use lures you have confidence in ;) i feel seagull will be passable on your date , best of luck , feel free to email me for anymore info, Darryll a couple of pics from 2017 on #455
you can fish the flowage area into seagull as the DNR does not want to paddle twice to put signs out and retrieve them , no motors past 3-mile and they have to ad bye by that rule also. ;) they use to put out the innertube signs pre- motor restrictions. but not anymore. people like to grab them sites close to the outlet. but come monday you'll have the lake to yourself :)
I saw on Tuscarora's instagram that Seagull is ice free as far as he could see from the landing. Should be perfect timing!
Troll around and keep your lures high....cranks, spoons, etc. They can see up and feed up very well, they can't really look down so don't fish under them and with the water this cold they won't be real deep.
