Walleyes are still hitting, again and again and again. The walleyes have become so aggressive many boats are hiring local kids along with the unemployed just to run the net as it is a full time job when targeting walleyes in 5-7 ½ feet of water with 1/8 oz jigs tipped with shiners under bobbers worked by the wave action. Many anglers are also reporting success working bright colored jigs aggressively along the bottom.

The crappie bite becomes more difficult as the crappies slowly begin to disperse into the deeper waters. Although many fish currently remain shallow and grouped up for the angler that is willing to work several spots looking pockets or schools of active crappies. Bets reports as of lately are coming from anglers working 1/16 oz jigs under bobbers tipped with small shiners suspended 18 inches off the bottom.

The waters are finally starting to warm up and the pike are liking it. Pike are still on the sluggish side and yet to fully but on the feed bags although the pike fishing gets better and better every day. The best results have come from anglers jig fishing larger plastic on heavy jigs such as the Stick-Um jigs, Esox jigs and J-Mac jigs. Blacks, browns and the old standby orange dropped into 4 feet of water and hopped back into 6 feet of water appear to be what these gators are looking for in a mid day snack.

Good Luck and enjoy the outdoors.

Jonny, what about the SHEEPHEAD, you can,t forget the wonderful SHEEPHEAD. Darn near the preetiest, tastiest, and most aggresive fighters in the lake. Boil them then pass the butter. tongue.gif

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
