was out on lake most of yeterday from 3 to 10:15

found a new hole in the floor where you and dale kicked up fish ,when snooks and myself were catching other kind.

watched a boat Alumacraft tiller,guy had all the same body language as darryl,hand on tiller,eyes on graphs and setting hook from site etc.same tight hole patterns he stays on, 30 to 75 foot coverage,very typical of the guy we know.

from 65 to 100 yards away they are doing the walleye stomp and i just figure its he.

We are really having fun, catching a lot of fish ,and after 1 and half hour decide to try something else they come in by us and we find out he has a clone,tall skinny guy that fishes just like him.'In the heavy clothes he was wearing it couda been him.

X marks the spot[twice]

Got a couple new spots to show you and they are really small spots that I hadnt used before.

Fishing in the cold front yesterday was super,the walleye stomp is on

LB,just let me know when your coming after this week.

I try to fish a little every day and only have 3 days planned for sure next few days before LCA.

If you want will give er a whirl.

The lake is here to get people on it.

Kinda neat cause kids sports activitys are all ending today.

Been going to 5 to 7 days a week of these and it really frees up time to fish.

Last spring did couple hours day or more 45 days in row fishing.Right upto middle of July.

Took this summer and fall off to finish building house and fish.

Wife says this is ok and so did kids.

Jeeze I love my family

Just heading out to last softball game of year.

good luck

Hey that is what I did last summer! It really makes this summer tough having to work all the time. With the cold front coming in I don't think I'll spend much time up there this week. I will be up a few evenings next week. (Wife permitting) grin.gif

There are many Crappies and Big Northerns in green, just have to do a little searching, little homework for the lake. I suggest try by Park 5 or by the lone tree.

Well I battled that wind on Monday. Can't believe that I was catching 3" perch in 18' of water, found a few eyes muching on them. I had a 18" cough one up in the well.

What is the story with the Banquet/rules meeting Friday? There wasn't a lot of info given about that? How long does it usually last?

LB,dinner is the part of banquet that keeps you in house.

Lots of teams seem to like to wait until that night to drop by and register.

Some prizes are drawn for and you can go from that.

I am not on rules committee and do not know anything else other than its a good little hour and a half.

legion puts on good food so have fun.

If you are coming up again this week let me know,am fishing between ball games.

lots of boats were out this weekend so I didnt go out for very long.

and with that hush is the word

I actually got to prefish the weekend before the tourney for the first time in 4 years. I left all my previous year waypoints on shore and went looking for new stuff. Looks like it paid off. On Sunday and Monday I caught more walleyes on Green than I did all last summer. It should be fun if the fish are there next weekend. As always I had the mixed bag of bass, perch, sunnies, and Northerns. I also boated my personal best Largemouth and Smallmouth this weekend.

That 18" bullhead (Iowan walleye)is the biggest I have ever caught! wink.gif

Sounds like a good time, are kids welcome to the banquet, or do they try to keep it just adults?

I don't think I will be making it up again this week. The Mrs. has me working on Landscaping tonight and tomorrow, and Thursday I will be getting the camper ready. I hope to be parked at West Rich by 2:00 Friday, and get some short time on the water before the meeting.

I fished Green lake, Sunday and Monday, Sunday the smallies were in the shallows (northside). Some guys even keeping them for dinner. Monday, forced to fish southside, all the fish were 20ft or deeper. I also caught alot of 4-7 inch perch, even at 25-30 ft. Several nice smallies on plastics, only 1 19inch, walleye. But thats OK, I have a guy from New York coming just for the smallies. I may get on Green again this weekend. Since the tourney is going, launching may get in little crowded. Can we park in the swimming beach lot in Spicer? I was told, it was off limits to boat trailers.

LB should be around sometime friday,dropping boat off to get some work done in few minutes[GRAPHICS]will leave my cell number at Westrich for you.

Jiggin,the beach parking lot is off but 6 public landings make it a bet you will get a spot to park.

County park #5 the campground landing is quickly becoming a parking favorite,besides landing they have Live Bait,food,fuel and campsites.

Jiggin,J had a small Heart deal,last saturday,talked to his wife yesterday.he will have stress test tommorrow.

      Oh oh, sounds like work. Better than work in the office any day though. Thanks for getting back. Let you know how it goes this weekend.
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      Ely Lake is tough. I don't have much experience fishing it, but everything I've heard about it is weedlines are key. 
    • gimruis
      I was an intern for the DNR one summer many years ago and I rented out a large fish house as my residence it at Hunters Point Resort.  It was more like a small, one room cabin actually.  There was obviously no running water but there was a shower/bathroom complex a short walk from my door.  I had propane power so I could use that for cooking and it had electricity via an extension cord provided by the resort.  I paid a flat monthly fee to stay there.  The bar/restaurant was a short walk too so I spent many nights bellied up there drinking beer.  The one thing that I will advise to you on this subject is to outfit it with some air conditioning.  Those things are designed to be outside in the winter and stay warm so if its 70 outside, its 80 in there.  They turn into a friggin' oven.  I put a 12,000 BTU AC unit in mine and turned that sucker into a meat locker.  Lots of other people at the resort used their own winter houses as a weekend cabin there, plus there was a lot of RV's parked there too.
    • gimruis
      I'm not sure why rivers are so over looked here.  Its probably because we have so many lake options.  Plus some of these stretches of the river are quite shallow/rocky so I think that turns people off about launching a sizable boat.
    • crappieslapper
      Thank you sir. I have read through the DNR report and have a map printed out. Lot of structure, shallow humps and belly's mid lake, shallow shoreline points, etc.. So, plenty of places to try. Any idea what kind of forage is in there and a preferred bait shop in the area? Thanks for the reply!!
    • ZachD
      I agree the Mississippi I love the river I don't know much about it up there as I live more south But I fish the Mississippi just south of Elk river and the Rum river for Small mouth. I will take a 3lb river smallie fight over a 5lb lake bass any day 😁 Plus Get some bonus walleyes and big Northern as well   
    • chizek
      Anyone ever fish the stretch of the mississippi like highway 694 bridge to the lowry ave bridge   in ne minneapolis mn 
      any general info im looking for  been kind of exploring it

      Do you have any tips for fishing Fish Lake this time of year? I'm gonna try it out in the next few days... Is it typically an early morning, late evening bite or can you get them all day long? Thanks for any info.
    • PRO-V
      Calling them would be your best bet. Maybe you can reserve some on a card.
    • delcecchi
      starft you off.... https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=69066000 http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/data/lakemaps/b0537011.pdf Status of the Fishery Ely Lake is located approximately 2 miles SE of the city of Eveleth. This popular lake is highly developed with homes and cabins. There is a small seaplane base and two public swimming beaches also located there. Water clarity is good and large amounts of aquatic vegetation can be found throughout the lake. 

      There is a concrete planked boat ramp and dock located near the NE end of the lake off Cedar Island Drive (CR629) for public access. The parking space is somewhat limited near the ramp. Several private accesses are also present. 

      Thirteen species of fish were sampled during the 2017 survey on Ely Lake. Gill nets, trap nets and night electrofishing were all used to sample the fish community. Small bluegill were common in the gill net catch (34%) and abundant in the trap net catch (57%). Other panfish species including hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed, green sunfish and black crappie were also sampled in good numbers. Largemouth bass outnumbered smallmouth bass in the 2017 sample. Walleye (16%) contributed to the gill net catch and several were sampled in the trap nets. Yellow perch are present in average amounts and some good sized pike were again sampled during the 2017 survey. 

      Bluegill numbers in 2017 (72.1/trap net) were much higher than the long term average (31.6/trap net) on Ely Lake and greatly above average (7.9/trap net) compared to other similar lakes in the area. The average bluegill sampled was 5.6 inches long and about 6 years old. Approximately 66% of the bluegill sampled with the trap nets were under 6 inches with a maximum size recorded of 8.0 inches. Bluegill sampled with the gill nets had a similar size structure. Approximately 7% of the hybrid sunfish sampled in the trap nets were 8 inches or larger. Several pumpkinseeds were also in this size range. 

      Largemouth bass (92%) and smallmouth bass (8%) were sampled during the night electrofishing effort. The average largemouth sampled was 10.9 inches which is similar to the historic average of 10.6 inches. The biggest largemouth sampled was 18.5 inches. Approximately 33% of the largemouth sampled were 12 inches or larger. The average smallmouth sampled was 9.8 inches which is slightly larger than the historic average (8.4 inches). The largest smallmouth sampled was 16.8 inches long. Approximately 32% of the smallmouth sampled were 12 inches or larger. Largemouth bass were also sampled from the gill nets and trap nets in numbers above average. 

      Walleye numbers in 2017 (6.2/gill net) were similar to the historic average (6.1/gill net) on Ely Lake and slightly above average (5.0/gill net) when compared to other similar area lakes with walleye. The average walleye sampled was 15.5 inches and about 4 years old. Approximately 34% of the walleye sampled were 15 inches or larger up to a maximum of nearly 29 inches. Walleye fingerlings are currently being stocked during even-numbered years and in 2017 approximately 62% of the walleye aged came from years where stocking occurred. 

      Northern pike numbers in 2017 (1.1/gill net) were similar to the historic average (1.3/gill net) and below average (3.2/gill net) compared to other similar area lakes with pike. The average pike sampled was 26.8 inches which is similar to the historic average length of 26.3 inches. The largest pike sampled in 2017 was 35.2 inches long and sampled with a trap net.
