Gull Lake is approximately 10,000 acres located just north of Brainerd. The lake is approximately 12 miles long, north and south. Gull is a structure fisherman’s dream. It is also a great multispecies lake that has very good populations of walleye, northern, bass, panfish, eelpout, and recently introduced muskies.
Gull is probably most known for its large walleyes that can be caught, especially during the fall months. Bass fishing in the mid-summer months can provide great action for anglers which include both small and largemouth bass. Gull has several large sand flats that then transition to deep water via very sharp depth contours.
Gull is a year-round fishing destination. It also hosts the largest ice fishing contest in the world in late January which is hosted by the Brainerd Jaycees. Resorts on Gull Lake include Grandview Lodge, Maddens, Cragun’s, Four Season’s Resort, and Sandy Beach Resort to name a few.
