Is anyone getting any crappies near Ely?

I was out on Garden Lake Last Friday and didn't get anything. Is anyone having any success anywhere?

Well man your fishing a lake that is not know for huge numbers but better sized ones. I have not been fishing up there but check the dnr site and look for a lake with better crappie numbers and give it a shot.

They have to be getting fish on Pelican. Havent been up there but a lake with that many nice gills and crappies would be a good place to look.

I know where I'd be if I was in Ely right now.....

I wish I was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone know if ice has started pulling away from any of the shores on the smaller lakes????

Maybe not until Easter???????

The ice is still solid to shore except in some current areas. All the flowing rivers are open. It's been mostly highs in the low to mid 30s, with a fair amount of sun and wind, so melting is moving slowly with a lot of evaporation as it goes. Next couple of weeks should open things considerable. We're looking at highs in the 40s.

I believe we're looking at rain chances by the end of the weekend as well. Armstrong had folks on it the last few times by it. I'm guessing the walk in trails are almost manageable but slippery.

Nada so far.

I've been tryin deep, shallow, weeds, rocks, minnows, waxies, where creeks flow into the lake, and anywhere else I can think of. Going out again this afternoon, maybe evening will be better than morning. No way to tell temp. in the duck boat, but it's gotta be getting close to spawning time on some of those smaller lakes.

it is not easy to find them but when you do hang on. One Pine near the river that comes in just south od the acess can be a good spot. Bring alot of jigs the northern will take a bunch. A couple bays on Birch can be good i dont remember names. I had my best luck catching crappies and sunnies around opener even with warm springs. If you can get in to stub lake that shoud be good the north side of Fall lakes around the round the portage to newton i have caught crappies. Its so hit or miss up there i tried and only in my last year put together something that worked and that was fish and fish until i found them.

The day I graduated from VCC, then the day after, My Dad and I slayed the Crappies in my most favorite Ely fishing hole!

Yeah i've been into that river on One Pine a couple times, no luck yet. I'm sure it will produce when the crappies finally decide to move it and start eatin, ideal textbook spot.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.
