It'll still be plenty crowded on a Friday. A lot of people don't work fridays and then there are the guys that are laid off and people that are staying in the area on a fishing trip. If you want to have it a little more quiet, go on a weekday like Tues or Weds. and fish either early in the morning or stay there till dark. And yes, with less pressure, the fish will bite better and you will be able to fish more spots.

I'll be making my first run down there for the year tomorrow(wednesday), going solo since most people I fish wish have normal jobs and only can fish on weekends, hopefully I'll be able to find some fish without all the crowds around.

To get to the store take 61 south into town and turn right at Perkins. Go underneath the bridge and where the first building on your left past the Super 8.

I'll be here at 6 am.

You guys might need a larger minnow scoop to keep them customers coming back. Just a little constructive criticism.

I was down at Ike's Sunday morning and bought minnows. I don't much pay attention to how many minnows are in the scoop, I fish alone and never go through a whole scoop anyway, but I will say this:

Those were some of the liveliest and spunkiest fatheads I've had in awhile!

And they stayed that way all day!

So my two cents are, even if the scoop is smaller (I have no reason to doubt Norksy), I personally prefer quality over quantity.

Norskey - sorry you feel the way you do. When I scoop I try to get as many as I can in the scooper. My dad tells all of us to get as many as you can so we please the customers.

Give me a call and when you stop buy again I'll give you two FREE scoops. Just ask for Shawn.

Thanks for the critisim.

The two scoops I bought yesterday morning was more than fare. Minnows were lively and last all day.

Thanks. grin.gif

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
