We have fished the Ely area thw first week in June nearly everytime we have been up there. This year will be a week later (June 9). Considering your weather, etc., any ideas about the smallie bite?

You might consider Vermilion for the June smallie bite. They'll still be in shallow, and V is putting out huge numbers of bronzebacks these years with plenty over 5 lbs. Coupla times last June I went musky fishing there, and with the cooler water the 'skies hadn't turned on yet, but I had great luck with shallow smallies tossing plastics and twitch-pausing husky jerks. Several fish over 5 lbs. And V is only about 20 minutes from Ely.

Thanks. We've fished Jasper, Bear Island, Little Long and the Vermilion River the past few years. I love the river and will miss not being there this year. We fish the 10 mile stretch and have gotten some very nice bass. We'll be staying on Farm this year but will probably try a couple different spots.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
