Possible new fire restriction coming!

1 post in this topic

This is the email I just got from Tracy Richards at the Forest Service.

****************************

Hi, Between Aug. 9 and Aug. 12, we have had 7 fires, of which 3 were human caused. The Canadians have been having fires as well and current conditions have allowed for smoke from these fires to be visible from quite

a distance away. Please emphasize fire safety to your visitors as

conditions are at extreme. This is also a heads up that further fire restrictions are likely to be imposed in the next few days. Please prepare folks accordingly. We will get the word out as soon as we get official direction as to the extent of the restriction. An official news release will come out and entry point bulletin boards will be posted with the current information at that time as well. If questions, please call 218-365-7619.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
