In the words of that sage fisherman extrodinaire Dutchman Doug..."Why stop 5 bucks short of a good fishing trip". I always grab a bag of Fatheads to bring along whenever and wherever I'm fishing on the LOTW ice. As for 'Chubs' iffin your talking Creek Chubs or Redtails you won't find 'em up here, Rainbow Dace are availiable at Log Cabin usually.

As Roger mentions on the east side Shiners usually rule the roost, but there are days that other minnows trip their trigger as well or better. West side of lake is a whole different pond and the fishes don't seem so Shiner particular. I shifted my fishing to the westside a bit early this year and it seems about 2 of 3 trips on average the Fatheads are getting more fish than the do Shiners on the deadstick.

Try a live Fathead and a ripped in half or squished Shiner on the same Jig/hook, you can't get your minnow to do that trick iffin you did'nt bring the Fatheads!!

Shiners don't like to be mixed with anything. Keep 'em in their own bucket. Drastic temp changes will kill 'em quicker than anything so be carefull when adding lake water to your bucket iffin the bucket water has warmed up in your hut much.

Fisky,

As the relentless attack of the Spiney Waterflea has raised the price of bait up here, I have had to update my line to "don't stop a FEW bucks short of a good fishing trip".

By the way, I think I'm blushing a bit to be quoted by the likes of you. Maybe just a little wind burn though?

I would recommend the aqua-life pellets. A friend of mine added a few to his/mine bait buckets this past weekend and the shinners actually stayed alive. Its ridiculously hard to keep shiners alive and the pellets paid off. In my mind they were well worth it.

I know this is a pain in the --- but a good areator/bucket is worth it's weight in gold....IMHO when you keep air on those shiners/any minnows they seem to catch more fish....c63

      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!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
