Ely and Pleasant lakes

2 posts in this topic

Anyone been out on these lakes lately? I'm looking to get out thursday in search of some panfish and walleyes but haven't heard anything reports on where they're catching them (if they are) and what they are biting on.

Thanks guys!

There is a handful of holes on pleasant lake including one almost straight out from the access. People also fish back through the narrows in another 30 foot hole. I have not heard any recent reports but guys do well out there all winter. They are very small crappies, once in a while a guy will find some decent ones but it takes a little work. The best we have ever done for quality fish was a few years ago after dark in a little shallower water. Ely Lake has produced a few nice eyes for us this year but you are lucky to catch a fish or 2 a night. Has nice crappies but tough to find. As are the eyes, the lake is full of structute. Please be sure to stay away from the islands out there, the ice gets pretty shady this time of year in that area. Good luck!!

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
