Not much happening out there.

No problem getting on. If the gate is open in the "winter" you can go on. If the gate is closed in the "winter" you can't go on But, do not leave trash at the access or on the lake.

There is no access to the lake in summer.

Was out there 4 times this year with NO luck and my buddy fishes it hard every year. this is the first time in at least 4 years that he pulled his permanent off of Scott. Moved it to Pearl and had MUCH better luck. The few times I was out, it was the dead sea. And I agree with Robbo. The land owner is gracious enough to open the gate in the winter for us to enjoy. If the word gets out too much on this lake and the weekenders go there and leave [PoorWordUsage] all over, he'll close the gate off for everyone. So enjoy that lake, and all lakes for that matter, repsonsibly! Good luck!

Prechlerker, I hope your getting permission to go out there in the summer. I was over at the owners house the other night, there keeping an eye on it, because someone let the cows out one time, during the summer, thats why they don't want people in there during summer, when the cows are pastured there.

You can get to Scott by portaging from another lake, but I believe since the land owner owns all of the land around the lake, you still need permission in the summer. And just out of curtiousy, I would ask.

Nope- as long as accessing by the river you don't need permission.

I did ask them about that, they can't control any going up or down the river.

Good Luck if you go there.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
