They do bite once in awhile just not very fast or consistent.

Todd: The Walleyes on LOTW just have a great UNION and quit at sundown... They go back to work at sunrise... LOL... Now the Pout have the night job and you can get them running around after hours.. Seriously, the water is to stained and even Old Marble Eyes can't see very well in that water after dark.. But the Pout aren't that bad, are they??? They smell their way around, or is it they just plain SMELL!! confused.gif Better off sleeping after dark and be ready for the HOT Sun Up Bite grin.gif!!! Kaz

Thanks for the help. We're bringing up some tip ups with bells in case the pout want to wake us up!

We have stayed in Bob's sleepers out of Warroad formerly Jakes. We bring rattle reels with and lay the lure real close to the bottom. Most likely you will catch pout but we have caught a few walleyes. We have actually caught a 26" fish in the dark.The pout can be a real blast to catch just do not put to many down or you will spend the whole night untangling from the pout.

Good luck and have fun.

Thanks for the posts. Speaking of eelpout tangle, I once was at the Eelpout Festival on Leech Lake, and had one heck of a morning eelpout tangle.

I am told the same thing every trip up there but I dont believe that for a minute. I have caught my biggest fish up there after dark. You wont catch as many as the daytime, but some of the biggest eyes have come at night. You just have to move shallower after dark. We fish deep during the day and move to the shallows just before primetime. I look at it this way, I am up there too fish and I cant catch them at the motel or bar...lol.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
