Shagawa

7 posts in this topic

My family and i are heading up to ely this weekend and we want to do some fishing. Was wondering if any walleyes or perch are biting on Shagawa. Thanks for any info.

I think you would have better luck seeing Elvis or Jimmy Hoffa out on Shagawa than finding a fish out there. Its been slow out there to the point of rediculous.

Three of us fished there monday night and came home with nothing. I had one fish half way up the hole, but never saw it. Good Luck

i agree with justin though i have been back home in south central mn for holiday break. Coming back to school on the 8th and i will once again drill shagawa under looking for some active fish. Meanwhile back home i slayed the eyes depspite crappy ice....Even if the fish dont coperate, it will be nice coming back up to 7 plus inches of ice instead of 2" grin.gif

went out on shagawa on fri. night and caught 1 small walleye, but had some more get half way up then get off. went sat. morning and kept one 15 in. eye and caught a few small ones that we threw back, then went again on sat. night and caught a lot of tiny walleyes and one keeper. Also our group caught one 10 lb northern on sat. night.

How about ice? Any known heaves/ridges? Vehicle travel?

when we were up there the ice was 15-16 in and trucks were driving everywhere. i know there wasn't any on the east side, but i don't know about anywhere else.

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.
