FishOn, I don't know about them, but if you're figuring on getting bait for the bash, both the Ely bait stores mentioned in the other thread carry shiners.

ok. thanks. wasnt necessarily going to use them on burntside, but ill be fishing walleyes the rest of the weekend and shiners are getting tough to find. never fished for lakers, most of my fishing is done in the metro, and eveleth, so not alot of knowledge on what to use for them.

FishOn, just give lucky 7 in Virginia a phone call and ask. I'm sure you can get their number from information.

Hey stfcat, do you happen to know a friend of mine that goes by hovermn? havent talked to him in awhile, but i did today and hes on the way up now! HE SAID HE KNOWS ALOT OF PEOPLE ON THE SITE AND HAS FRIENDS IN ELY, (oops!) just curious.

Getting bait at those bait stores in Ely will do you fine if you don't want to stop in Virginia. They both have the different types of bait you need, and if you ask them they'll each tell you which to use. And they're Bash supporters.

I clearly remember hovermn's handle but can't recall whether I've met him in person or not. Sorry 'bout that, both to you and hovermn.

Stop on the way and see. If they dont your only out 5 minutes but use it as a potty break and no worries. Then just get bait in Ely.

Although, now that Im thinking about it, both Ely shops donated prizes for the Bash so we should support them.

Sorry if I confused you. Heck Im confused. I may have to take some sleeping pills toonight to get any sleep. I always get pumped before a fishing trip or tourney and cant sleep.

No sweat stf! just figured id ask to see if we had a friend in common! And northlander, Im the same way! I fish very often around home, but i was meant to be an up north man! so when ive got plans to get up there, sleep is difficult. how long of a drive do you have to get there?

In Superior, Steve's about 2.5 hours from the Van Vac landing. Um, unless he can get that Ford of his to surpass the speed limit. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I don't have to drive anywhere but a half dozen miles to Burntside, but it doesn't seem to matter how long the drive is. When it's lakers and you got the fever, sleep comes HARD!

Cool. Unless you want to get bait in Virginia, you can add the few extra miles and come into Ely for bait and then go back a short distance to catch the turn for Burntside. By buying your bait at one of the two ely businesses mentioned in the other thread, you'll be supporting the businesses who have been good supporters of the Bash.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
