The bog had broke loose blew into the landing. I checked it two weeks ago and there was 20 yards of cattails in front of the landing.

Thanks for the info!!

Not the first or the last time that has happened on Clearwater. Have seen some big islands of floating bullrush over the years smile

Any updates as to the condition of the landing? Is the bog cleared yet, or still obstructing?

I have been told it is still blocked but havn't been there to witness for myself. Supposedly the DNR is going to blow up the bog-explosive style. That would be fun to see!

My son and I visited the "Black Pool" via boat two weeks ago to witness the Bog. I was very surprised by the size of it. It will be interesting to see what will be engineered and exercised to displace or move/remove the mass.

Although we have not had a launching/parking issue at the Bay Club landing, possibly the DNR could negotiate temporary overflow parking with what appears to be a vacant and for sale structure directly across the road.

that lot a cross the road from the access can be used but they ask that you park in the back row. I parked over there the last time I was out there.

Sounds like they are going to take care of the bog this week or next before the fourth of july. I heard they were going to blow it up(not sure the truth of that) it would be cool to witness though.

This will help out tons as the bay club landing has been packed just about every weekend now for just over a month. Two weeks ago I had to wait for over a half hour just to get loaded coming off the lake.

Still dont understand why they made that landing a one boat landing now when it was two before. The cement work is very slippery especially in the fall when temps flirt with freezing.

Word around the campfire is one of the cabin owners in the black pool there pushed that bog over infront of the landing because it originally ended up in front of his cabin. He's been bragging about it, not sure how to prove something like that but I hope he gets the $8000 bill to remove it.

Why don't they just get a group of boats to hook up to it and pull it out of there?

That thing is so big, I don't see how a home owner could move it on his own.

All i know is my buddies dad wants to put the houseboat in and is all PO'd because this guy was bragging to him about pushing that bog over infront of the landing. I heard it from my buddies mother. So whatever thats worth. I would think a guy with time and a bigger HP motor could do it. It originally floated over there from the wind, as long as its floating I would think a guy could push it.

That's a lot of good cover they are going to trash. So they can launch a barge or 4 at another ramp and push that thing back where it came from? I don't think one person could move that even with a 250H.

I think they are doing the right thing with this by removing it. Moving it only sounds like a temporary fix to me. The lake is full of cover, so removing it won't upset the fish too much! grin

It'll be interesting to see how that bay is reconfigured structurally after this event is all said and done.

This is the report I recieved from the DNR on this past Monday. The bog removal was advertised for bid and last week an award letter was sent to the successful bidder. We are in the process of collecting the necessary documents from the contractor and upon receiving them, the project can proceed. The contractor will have a couple weeks to complete the project.

This landing is still in ROUGH shape. It's basically a mud/muck puddle, with decaying vegetative particulate matter and loose chunks of bog. I used it today, but I won't use it again any time soon. I can't imagine how much little pieces of grass and dirt got sucked into my intake vents.

      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.  
    • srj
      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.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      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!
