Has anyone tried Shagawa lake this year? I'm going up Friday (18th) and could use some advise if you have any. Any and all tips are very appreciated. Thanks! grin.gif

Not too many good reports from Shagawa last weekend, but quite a few people coming to Ely today so may have a better report tomorrow evening.

That's the depth I heard about fish being caught, but it wasn't the best opener as far as numbers being caught (few and far between, some exceptions, but not many). I'll contact Jim at Shagawa Inn this morning and see if anything has changed.

hey badgerjohn,

I will be up there for a week starting June 3rd. if you see a 21 foot fish and ski red stratus flying around that would be us. Happy fishing. Shag is a great lake.

I just talked to the old geezer (Jim) from Shagawa Inn today and he said that fishing has been pretty good lately. Lot of big Bass and smaller walleyes, up to 20 inches.

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.

      I drove by the spot I thought it was on the snowmobile and couldn't find it.
