agate reef is a good early season spot. when the mpls fire dept had there fishing tournament there, the winning fish was caught there 7 out of the 10 or so years that we had the tournament at agate bay resort. your depth range is right on, but don't be afraid to try some different depths shallower and deeper. good luck..............tom fellegy

A few years back we pulled rapps off of Agate on opener and had a blast we caught over thirty eyes and a 10lb northern an 3:00 am that was intresting what a battle. we used sinking rapps and trolled 8-12 fow when the rap was barley bouncin of the bottom we had our best luck.

Thanks Tom!!

I'll give Agate a try, around 7am or so I'll probably head to Fischer's. I know quite a few who did well there last year.

If nothing, it's time to hit the Sand.

I know I'm gonna start something but their is only one color chartuse and the rap of choice would be a clown.

Elwood- not the right colors for my boat, Redand brightg pink are my colors choices, for raps I use a white rap or a purple perch color. I have fallin in love w/ them on this lake. I may have to try a clown though... why not.

I don't have any Purple Perch. Time to pick up a few and give them a try.

I dont have the purple perch color also, so you know what its time to add more color to my tackle box, though it will be hard to see it over all that chartuse grin.gif

      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.
