Bait for the Bash

5 posts in this topic

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.

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!
