Where is the Swimming Area in Ely.

5 posts in this topic

I'll be playing grandpa this weekend up in Ely. The grandkids are 4 year olds and I thought I would take them swimming while grandma goes to the Blueberry Festival Art Show. I'm not going to have a boat, so I'm looking for a beach. Thanks

The easiest place would be Semer's Park. You go north from Sheridan(Main st.)on Central Ave. (the one that has the Chocolate Moose and Tony's Conoco)for about 2 blocks and take a left. There will be signs for Semer's park, Ely Seaplane base, Stony Ridge, etc. Go another couple blocks and take a right(there is a sign there too I think. You will be on the south shore of Shagawa Lake.

Hope this helps and have fun escaping the crowds!

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
