Tom/tcbrookston,

Tho I've never meet ya (that I can remember), if you end up having an extra bunk in your house I would sure be honored to stay out on the ice with ya. I slept in my truck a couple years ago and it was a bit "frosty" grin.gif

I cant get up there til Friday night after work, probably

8'ish (first week at school and I work at UMD). I've been at every Bash to date, and can bring a couple sleds and my Otter so we can cruise the lake and fish a variety of spots. I can show you around the lake and we could hit some previously productive spots (depending on slush). I didn't make hotel reservations cause I wasn't sure when I was gonna be able to be up there, but can fish til Sunday AM.

And I have been known to make a little noise myself after a couple snorts, so i dont mind it either. One way or another, I'm stayin on or near the ice cool.gif

Let me know what ya think.

Have a good weekend.

Xplorer/Chris E

PS: Steve/Chunky....per tradition, there will be a 15'er of Lager for you'se guys on location grin.gif

And here I am, in my wheel house, in the front yard, trying to figure out how I can set up a snap in pole.

Well, I guess I can still have my wife use it if I ever figure it out and figure out how to get her to try it.

See, you all, this is what happens when you listen to Great Outdoors. Rumor is somehow transformed into fact. I say, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. grin.gif

Ah Steve, your modesty is too much. tongue.gif

Don't believe him folks, his pole dancing talents in the Kwazy Wabbit and Ely Steakhouse are becoming legendary. blush.gif

We Ely natives are starting to write songs about him!! grin.gif

Wouldn't be surprised if a few pictographs started appearing on the roadside rocks when you enter Ely on the west side. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Jimmy, this is a family site, and I guarantee that if I handed out a spate of pole dancing at the Bash, NO ONE who saw it would feel like starting a family ever again. grin.gifgrin.gif

Ok enough about pole dancing.

Lets get back on track here. Whats the ice conditions like on the old Blankside. wink.gif

Im hoping you dont get much snow and cold weather to make good ice and wheelers and sleds usable.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
