I was wondering if you had a little info on the muskie bite on french? If you dont want to reply on here just drop me an e-mail at wallyhunter66@yahoo.com any help you could provide would be great. I have never caught a muskie but have had a few follows and was thinking the rock pile on french looked pretty good but i have never been on the lake before so any tips you could give would be great. thanks alot Todd

Good Luck out there, I spent Thursday afternoon and evening on French casting, water clarity made it tough to see any follows, was marking some nice fish out a little deeper, but never tried trolling for them.

Just got back from French, water is still murky so we couldnt tell if we had any follows. We fished with bucktails and top water lures. Did have the local Rice county sherriff stop by and shoot the breeze though, he said they are biting and one of the local guys that lives on the lake just pulled in a 50 plus fish. Todd

Sry wallyhunter66 I've been fishing,working a lil, and at my dads, none of them have a computer. When I went to my g-ma to "work" I got up early to go fish a lil of of Hoy's dock with a sucker. Caught a 45" around 6:30 and sad story I dont know if she made it. You can read 'bout that under the muskie forum. After that I had 1 of my 3 suckers left and went to hook it and the slimey lil guy got out of my hands and into the lake. So my day ended early and my work also started early. I'll be out there 2sday through wedsnday possibly thursday. Then again this weekend. Next report will be the next time I find a computer or next monday or 2sday.

Hey Guppie Ya the boat sits in the garage most of the time frown.gif Our lift needs repair so we decided not to put it on their this year. Actually that was the first day of fishing since memorial day frown.gif I know it's been a tough year for getting out.

      starft you off.... https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=69066000 http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/data/lakemaps/b0537011.pdf

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      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.
