How has the hunting been down there recently. Have always wanted to try this spot late in the season especially but have never cared much for crowds of duck hunters.

Hunted out there sunday and monday. Did well on Sunday not as good on Monday. The company was top notch however. Was hunting with a group of guys who at one time or another were banned and may still be from this site. Amazing to me because they were all great guys. It was my first time hunting down there its definetily a different experience.

Ok, the truth be told the hunting was very good but a lot of people also. We shot 22 birds the last two days of the season with all but one being a greenie. Took on the big wind Tue morning and it was very much worth it. Birds decoyed very well and it was pretty calm by the time we left. A lot of people hunt that area and if you dont know where you are going it can be dangerous. The hunting can be great also.

Where is this lake? I'd be curious to look it up on a map for next year possibly. Thanks.

I dont recomend it, too many people and as everyone knows, there are no ducks in MN. As for hunting with the guys who were banned, was there any talk about shooting exotic birds? And how did the brown dog do?

The brown dog was plenty adequate, except for when he left and I was once again finding myself in the canine role. Still looking for my first banded peafowl.

      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!

      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
