Looking for positive reinforcement

5 posts in this topic

We have fished the Ely area thw first week in June nearly everytime we have been up there. This year will be a week later (June 9). Considering your weather, etc., any ideas about the smallie bite?

You might consider Vermilion for the June smallie bite. They'll still be in shallow, and V is putting out huge numbers of bronzebacks these years with plenty over 5 lbs. Coupla times last June I went musky fishing there, and with the cooler water the 'skies hadn't turned on yet, but I had great luck with shallow smallies tossing plastics and twitch-pausing husky jerks. Several fish over 5 lbs. And V is only about 20 minutes from Ely.

Thanks. We've fished Jasper, Bear Island, Little Long and the Vermilion River the past few years. I love the river and will miss not being there this year. We fish the 10 mile stretch and have gotten some very nice bass. We'll be staying on Farm this year but will probably try a couple different spots.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
