Last Tuesday we fished a mile or two out over rocks in 22' of water. We caught numerous 'eyes between 8:00 and 9:30 in the evening including a 28" a 27" and several 26." You don't need to go out that far to find big fish. smile.gif

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the night ban doesn't come off until Monday the 11th at 12:01 a.m.

Night closure: No one may fish for any species or possess fishing gear on the lake from 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. starting at 10 p.m. May 14 and ending at 12:01 a.m. June 11.

This means you can start fishing Monday morning June 11th, at 12:01AM

Hey, Geeksquad may have had another type of "fishing" he was referring to and he did clearly state his girlfriend was going to be on board. He likely isn't planning on having fishing gear on board. blush.gifwink.gif

That's another funny part of the regs...

You have to come in by 10pm Sunday night to get off the lake, and then wait 2 hours to go back out and night fish again after midnight. I suppose they have to make it a black and white line in the regs, but just thought that was a little funny as we will be staying up there during this time frame and probably fishing.... cool.gif

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
