Fishing Report

Steve Ellsworth

Recommended Posts

We fished URL in Kelly's shacks from 2:00 p.m. on Sunday(1-22) until Tuesday morning at 9:30 (1-24). We caught 14 very nice-sized crappies, some decent perch, a few walleyes, and a 35" northern(on 4# test line). Best times were from 4-7p.m. Best lures were the red frostee and the blue glow demons. We had a great time. Thanks kelly for your hospitality and the great shacks!! Our crappie bites were fairly aggressive. We lost a few crappies getting them out of the hole. Winds, weather, and roads were nasty on the way home. Thanks again Kelly!!! laugh.gif

I was in one of Kelly's from 2pm Sun until 9am Mon. We were exactly 7 miles out. Only 2 of us fishing and only caught 2 crappies but Kelly's father was nice enough to stop by and bolster out catch so we could have a good fish fry. Thanks to both Kelly and his Dad!!

ps - the blue glow demons (the ones that look white) were the ticket for us. Caught 5 or so walleyes as well. I WISH we could've caught a northern that size!!! laugh.gif

We fished out of the south shore Tuesday lots of walleyes, 6 crappies from 3pm-8:30pm we fished 2 miles out and tried red demons and small buckshot I think when they're in the mood and they see the bait be it glow or not they were going to bite.

Thanks Sifty! We really appreciated the friendliness of Kelly and staff. We also enjoyed eating a couple of delicious meals at the Westwind Lodge Bar. Some of our crappies bit so aggressively on Monday evening that we could hear the bobber "pop" in the water when they bit.

We really appreciated the evergreen trees along the main road on the way to shore on Tuesday morning. Weather conditions were "nasty". laugh.gif

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
