Stopped in at the resort and talked to Doug today. 20" of ice, fishing has not been up to par so far this winter. Same ol same ol, a few folks getting on top of them get a few Crappies in the evening. I was surprized that they did not have their usual gaggle of pictures of winter caught fish! By the time I rolled up there is was 3:30 and the wind was already zipping at a pretty good clip across the lake, and not wanting to build a Frabil Ice Boat, I decided to hold off until the weather turns this week, so no personal fishing report!

I hit the East lake yesterday from 3-7:30. Ran the augar outta gas trying to find a Crappie bite. Got one 6"er and had ta snag that one!

The resort reports some large sunfish are being had just past the narrows, into the far East bay, with a few slimers thrown in.

I got in to those sunnies a couple times last week. There are a lot of fish to be caught there. My suggestion, drill about 15 holes and just keep moving, jig for a minute if nothing hits move, keep this going for an afternoon and you should have a couple suppers.

Yes, if you pay the four bucks to access at the resort. It's a a hard left, and down the shore line, about 3/4 of a mile I'd say.

When I was up there, the public access had an ice heave about 4 feet tall right across the ramp, so you could only get on with a 4 wheeler or sled. But then that is at the far end of the lake anyhoo!

Good luck! Keep us posted!(pun intended)

Labrat is correct for access! Just be careful as you go into the narrows, nasty spot for ice right there! Just hug the SE shoreline and you allright!

      Was a few years ago, but wade fly fished upstream of 53 for a half day.  Tried every popper and minnow pattern fly in my box with no success.  Finally in the middle of the day switched to a larger brown bugger that looked like a crayfish and caught them till I got tired of it.  Unless things have changed, there’s a lot of bass in there.  Not a ton of size, but every now and then you’ll pop a nice one.

      This looks awesome, your kids are about the same age as mine.  I’m really excited to show them the north woods next week, hopefully a few fish cooperate too!

      By larger limit, I meant 6, not 4 walleyes. I count released fish as part of the limit, too. Nothing wrong with a 15” by any means, but we had larger fish we could keep.

      Yes, smallies thrive in the upper reaches of select areas of the St Louis. Lots of structure to get caught up in, but great small mouth habitat.

      I'm about to take my brother and niece over to experience the Soudan Mine tour this weekend. I've driven there before but he inquired about boating to the mine. With the new state park, is there a public boat dock anywhere nearby where one could hike a mile or so from the lake to the mine entrance? I don't make it to the east end too often so my knowledge of bays and landmarks is pretty limited.

      Isn't that the mantra for muskie fishermen?

      Went fishing on Basswood on Sunday. It rained all day but we had a good time thanks to Mike Stark and The Ely Fishing Guide Company.

      Never seen it myself but I looked at the satellite images and thought it looked worth a float.  The dam would probably tell you what you want to know.  Couple good gravel bars too.  Maybe the water is dark or it is mainly deeper - that I can’t tell.   I fished the Cloquet a little where 53 and 33 meet and found good action so I’m assuming the St. Louis would be similar in that area?

      I spent the past 11 days at my cabin, fished 8 of those days and got some projects completed.  Fished Father's Day weekend with my FIL, 2-BILs, and my son, then High School friends this past weekend.  Both groups went home with limits with plenty of fish to eat during our stay.    Yes the bite was tough.  We moved around a lot and did what the weather allowed.  No real patterns, depths, colors, baits, or presentations.  Just put in time looking for them.  I'd say the bite was OK/good, a 5 out of a possible 10.  Some days slot fish were the rule.  My biggest was 29.5.  Some of the fish are already very fat, while others seemed to be on the slimmer side yet.     One day both the Coast Guard and the CO where working an area we were fishing.  Seemed like the CO found issues with 2 out of every 3 boats checked.  The CG seemed to find issues with 1 out of every 4 or so - ended their day escorting a charter boat back to the Rainy direction.  Sounded like they were working the NW Angle this past week.  We were ready, but did not get checked.     I will be up with my wife the week of the 4th, arriving Monday or Tuesday and heading back on Saturday to avoid the traffic.

      I did not get out this past weekend due to weather and wind but the weekend before we started to make contact with walleyes but only seemed to find the 13-15" fish.  We caught them in the 14-20ft range using jigging raps, rapalas, and lindy with a worm.  We caught a couple on Cross and the others on Whitefish.  I am going to try and slip up there for a night or 2 this weekend with the weather predicted to be nice and see if I can't find a few fish.  Good luck!
