shaky legs2

Didn't get a chance to say goodbye as we left early this morning. I am now watching a Twins game as I am typing this then to the Lazy Boy to recupperate. Sitting on a chair and staring at a 8" hole for three days is hard on an old man. Fred was very well-mannered Kelly - he must get that from Patsy. She better keep close tabs on him or somebody might kidnap him. Do you hire out for potty training??

Doc and I thank both of you for taking good care of us- we appreciated it. One last trip next Thursday but maybe we can join Jonny with the 4 wheeler for a couple of days at the end of March. I have to cram as much fishing and recreation in as I can in the next few weeks as I will be having back surgery in early April.

Thanks for helping scout. Scott did fairly well but Labs didn't do much, no big surprise. grin.gifgrin.gif I'm thinking of hanging around that area. Guru and T-rex should give us a pretty good idea by the time they're done hole hopping.

Doc is much better than me at scouting with my back but somebody has to man the cockpit in the fort. We enjoy helping in any way we can. I didn't get a chance to meet Labs but did speak briefly to Scott Z. I have something for Fred when we come up - hope to see you.

I was very pleased with the fishing this weekend. We ended up with a nice batch of crappies and threw back a lot of nice walleyes. I was extremely impressed with the size of all of the walleyes. We did not catch any under 15"! It was nice meeting you Shakey Legs. I wanted to get back over to your house on Saturday afternoon but didn't get back on the lake in time. Our bite was earlier on Saturday night. It started at about 6:30. We caught fish until about 9:15, at which time we went to Hillmans for some food and drink. We got back to the house at about 12:00 and dropped the lines down and immediately caught a crappie and 2 walleyes. I also had 6 (I think ) rattle reels go in the night catching a few walleyes and 1 crappie. We should have probably stayed at the fish house instead of going to town, as I think we would have caught fish all night long. Again thanks Kelly and Jon for pointing us in the right direction. Shae had a blast as usual. I have to say, one of his highlites was playing with Fred!

I hope we can hook up again sometime Scott and get a chance to visit. Our best night was Thursday with 5 crappies and several walleyes. Nothing on Friday - even the rattle wheels with a bare hook failed to produce. Saturday was slow as well. Doc fished outside for a couple of hours across the road to the East. He punched about 25 holes but didn't mark a fish. We caught one more google eye Saturday night but that was it. It's always great to catch fish and I like to as much as the next person but it is also about meeting people like the Petrowske's and yourself. We all have enough memories of the "Boom Days" to keep us gowing when the fishing is slow.

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      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!
