Bside luck 2/10-2/11?

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

Finally got logged in! I've been reading your threads since early Jan. Thanks for sharing so much. My first Bside laker outing was opener, caught 3 in two days. It was enough to make me happy. Was back there last weekend for 3 days and my buddy caught 1. I Lost 3 though. Poor me!

It seemed like a tough bite to me. I was wondering how the Vets did. I heard reports the lake was on fire recently, like several 11 pounders, limits for groups, and even a 20 off Snowbank. I travel for challenges and know I have found one at Bside.

I recently acquired a lot west of town by the Kiwishiwi and plan to be a once a monther at least. I'm already looking forward to experiencing next year's bash and hopefully meeting you guys!

Thanks for everything! Apologies to Quickstrike for dropping in on his other name.

Glad you got some fish. It's alright, actually kind of fitting that your first posts are about Burntside and that Ely is where I actually aquired my nickname. grin.gif

Hey Wanderer: Welcome to FM. Great to see you here! grin.gif

I haven't hit Bside since the Bash weekend on Jan. 27, so I'm no fountain of current info.

I will be introducing a walleye buddy of mine to laker fishing tomorrow on Bside, and may be fishing Sunday as well, and will report how it goes.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      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.
