Any Ely luck last weekend?

It seems the Duluth boys have found some fish worth posting about. I don't see anything out of Ely though. tongue.gif

We fished Farm Saturday and Sunday. It was dead in the spots I fished 3 weeks ago. Kinda figured. We searched around but just picked up scattered fish from 16 fow to 1 fow.

In all, about 4 walleye to 16 inches on jig/leech. 4 pike on spinnerbaits killed right after the weed clump. Mostly 2-3 pounds with one 8 shaking off. Finally a few of those plump sunnies on leeches by the weeds. And last, about 10 smallies on pop r and tubes. Biggest about 16 inches also.

Lots of casts to get that far. So, what did I miss? confused.gif

Good question. I fished very little but did manage to get out for 1.5 hours of panfishing & 2 hours of walleye fishing in the Ely area last weekend.

Panfish were biting in the deeper weeds, LMB were tight to shore & SMB bit on my plugs while trolling for 'eyes. Seems they are on the rocks pretty good. No bites from 'eyes, only skeeters. No fish for the braggers board, but worth posting...

Could have fished more & I am sorry I couldn't goto Algoma last weekend but check out the Blue Berry crop, thats a shure bet! grin.gif

Well, Wanderer, late May was weddings, and June was taken up completely with weekend guided photo excursions. Then there was the family reunion over July 4th, and now it's finishing off the new garage and getting siding going on the house addition.

And I've also started work on a fishing book.

Sigh.

I'll have to shoot you an e-mail one of these weekends, Casey. I'm definitely going to need a break from work. grin.gif

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
