On my way up

6 posts in this topic

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.

Don

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
