I am taking my Grandfather to Home Bay Resort on Lower Bottle in 10 days and would like to find a couple of "Hot Spots" to start on. Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My favorite place to fish is sunken island on Lower Bottle. There is also a sunken island on Upper Bottle.

There is also the "big bar", and trolling from Home Bay to the "White House".

There is also a nice point close to Whippoorwill I found this year (thanks Bud!!).

Man, I am drooling (and crying) as I type this crazy.gif

Thanks so much. Just two questions. Which way is the "White House" from Home Bay and where is Whippoorwill? Again thank you very much.

The "White House" I refer to is a small "house" (I'm not sure what it's actual function is) that is just on the other side of Birch Harbor.

Whippoorwill is the resort on Upper Bottle.

Thanks. Is Birch Harbor the little bay on the SW end of Lower Bottle?

No. Birch Harbor is another resort next to Home Bay.

      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.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
