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!!

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
