Where to Go...Ely?

5 posts in this topic

My better half and I are going to Duluth/Ely for a romantic getaway. OK, lets get real. Romance is cool only when there is no fishing to be had, and since I am going to Ely, what are you going to do? Leaving the boat at home, so I am feeling kind of depressed. Is there a place in town, that anyone here would recommend, for an outfitted day trip (boat or canoe)? What lake and what's biting? Leaving Thursday, staying in Ely on Friday. Thanks for any help.

Try one of the resorts on Moose Lake...You can fish the moose chain or do the motorized portage into basswood

I'd say Moose chain also. You should be able to find an area guide or rent a boat and motor for the day.

You could also go to the Grand Ely Lodge and rent a boat or pontoon on Shagawa for the day. It's right on the edge of town. Talk to Jim Carlson and he'll get you set up.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
