Both Great Outdoors and Babe's Bait and Tackle will be open about 5 a.m. on Saturday, the day of the Burntside Bash, so you can swing in and talk lakers and pick up your bait instead of buying it and transporting it from wherever you're coming.

Unless you already bought bait, of course.

Babe's is on the main drag (Sheridan/Hwy 169) on the left side of the road just as you hit Ely's west side coming from Tower. G.O. also is on Sheridan, but about half way through town and strategically placed across the parking lot from Mike's Liquors.

So now if you haven't already bought your bait, swing into one of those stores, both of which have generously donated prizes for the Bash drawing. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You will take 53 north a couple of miles to 169 north and from there here is the directions to the access.

DIRECTIONS

From Tower, come northeast on Hwy. 169 about 18 miles and turn left (north) on County Road 88 (Grant MacMahan Blvd.) Continue on 88 for a couple miles and take a left on County Road 404 (Van Vac Road). Continue for about a mile and turn right at the big brown public access sign, driving CAREFULLY downhill to the access. From Ely, C.R. 88 is about three miles southwest of town on 169.

The wolf center is a must-do, FishOn. Great place, and any time spent there is time well spent. Lots of fun stuff for kids, too.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
