Any Ely luck last weekend?

6 posts in this topic

It seems the Duluth boys have found some fish worth posting about. I don't see anything out of Ely though. tongue.gif

We fished Farm Saturday and Sunday. It was dead in the spots I fished 3 weeks ago. Kinda figured. We searched around but just picked up scattered fish from 16 fow to 1 fow.

In all, about 4 walleye to 16 inches on jig/leech. 4 pike on spinnerbaits killed right after the weed clump. Mostly 2-3 pounds with one 8 shaking off. Finally a few of those plump sunnies on leeches by the weeds. And last, about 10 smallies on pop r and tubes. Biggest about 16 inches also.

Lots of casts to get that far. So, what did I miss? confused.gif

Good question. I fished very little but did manage to get out for 1.5 hours of panfishing & 2 hours of walleye fishing in the Ely area last weekend.

Panfish were biting in the deeper weeds, LMB were tight to shore & SMB bit on my plugs while trolling for 'eyes. Seems they are on the rocks pretty good. No bites from 'eyes, only skeeters. No fish for the braggers board, but worth posting...

Could have fished more & I am sorry I couldn't goto Algoma last weekend but check out the Blue Berry crop, thats a shure bet! grin.gif

When you are ready for some rehab, let me know.

Yeah Steve, but what a great start you had! smile.gif Is it the employment switch (can't call it a career switch so much)?

Maybe you need to do a couple lake/sunset shoots???? Loons???? Mergansers????? Eagles????? Any of these sounding like an excuse to be out yet? grin.gif

Well, Wanderer, late May was weddings, and June was taken up completely with weekend guided photo excursions. Then there was the family reunion over July 4th, and now it's finishing off the new garage and getting siding going on the house addition.

And I've also started work on a fishing book.

Sigh.

I'll have to shoot you an e-mail one of these weekends, Casey. I'm definitely going to need a break from work. grin.gif

      I've been looking for a waterproof spray product for gloves and work boots. I've seen a few products like ultra dry, rust oleum, camp dry. I've asked around and nobody has any experience using any such product. Do any of these actually work? I saw a video from ultra dry that their product actually keeps things dry, like a piece of paper, clothing. I use many gloves at work and I'm tired of having wet gloves cold hands from handling things that are full of snow. When mfrs. say their product glove, boot or whatever is waterproof shouldn't your feet or hands stay dry? Moisture goes thru to inner part eventually and hands/feet get cold or are damp.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!
