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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
