Been reading for a couple of months now and it sure beats the st. louis post dispatch. I'll be up in the middle of sept. I believe we are fishing on Iron Farm and Garden. Any tips you guys can give me? A day or two will be spent sight seeing, any nice routes?

Thanks

Stop in the shop before 10 am any day, when you get to Ely. I'm sure we can find someplace to fish, sight see, whatever you like. This is the best time of year for many options:)

Or call (same time as mentioned) 218-365-4744, ask for Jim! cool.gif

Don, welcome aboard.

In addition to G O's offer I'll bet someone will jump in and give you a resent report from the area.

Have a good trip and let us know how you did.

A big thank you to the ely area. My wife and I was up the week of sept 9th. We had a great time, I really needed to get away from my job and the Ely area is now my new happy place. Now the fishing wasn't that good but who cares. We had a bald eagle fly into a tree by us and watch us cast, how many people back here in St. Peters Mo. can say that. Got snowed on, saw wolfs and had chipmunks eat out of our hands. All the locals were just great and next time up I'm going to find me a guide so even I can catch some eye's. I did catch a big smallmouth about 3 or 4 pounds. Well thanks again and see ya next year.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
