Bait between Biwabik and Ely?

Recommended Posts

icemac33

Where is my best bet for bait on the way to Birch Lake from Biwabik? We are leaving from Giants Ridge and want to pick up some stuff on Thurs morning. Also, can anyone tell me how long it will take to get to Ely from Biwabik? Thanks for any info.

Biwabik to Ely is about 45-50 minutes. Which end of the lake are you going to put in at? Babbitt has two bait shops - one at Blomberg's gas station and the other in the middle of town called Just Bite Me. You'll have to go a mile out of your way to Ely to get bait at either of those.

icemac, if you're coming from Biwabik to Birch Lake there's no need to detour to Ely at all. As Ken said, two bait stores in Babbitt. They're close together. Also as Ken said, there's the first one at Blomberg's C-store right on the main drag where all the businesses are clustered, and the second is about a city block further down right next to the Short Stop C-store (that's the one called Just Bite Me Bait). Bait's good at both places, but you'll get much better info on where they're biting if Theresa's working at Just Bite Me. A lot of bait store folks can tell you where the anglers say the fish are biting, but Theresa is a big angler, and she outfishes most of the others, so her info is first-hand.

And she's more than willing (unlike most of us anglers)to actually tell you where the fish are biting. Two accesses to Birch Lake near Babbitt. One down the Country Club road just as you are coming into town (take a left) and one at the Babbitt Beach down past Babbitt about 2 miles.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
