Fishing in the BWCA/Ely area turns Red Hot!

It has been raining quite a bit around here and that means water levels are even higher than they were on fishing opener weekend. This has made some of the canoe routes a bit easier on rivers & streams. But it meant it was harder to fish. Until last week that is! We all knew the fishing was going to pick up sometime and last week was that time.

The weather finally started cooperating and the 12 lb 10 oz walleye caught last week was proof of that!

WALLEYES

Brad Knope of Shawano WI was using a leech and a jig and found the 12 lb 10 oz monster in Little Long Lake.

The next big walleye was caught by Richard Lasch of South Bend IN and he hooked into a 9 lb 10 oz walleye from the Burntside Lake area. Rich was using a chub minnow.

Ely’s local lake, Shagawa, produced a nice 6 lb 6 oz walleye for Keith Appleberry. Keith is from the Ely area.

Another 6 lb walleye was caught by Dale Woodard of Deer River. Dale used a rainbow chub for his trophy.

NORTHERN PIKE

Northern pike have been hungry for minnows according to the fishermen who registered them last week.

The top pike of the week was a 19 lb 8 oz, 44 inches long caught by PJ White of Aurora IL and he found this one in Burntside Lake.

Close behind was a 19 lb 2 oz pike found in Birch Lake by Bill James of Hill City MN. Bill caught this one on a crappie minnow. And Bill was fishing for crappie, 4 lb test with an ultra light rod! Our hats off to Bill and the skill it must have taken to get this lunker into his boat with that weight gear!

Cory Lundeen from Harris MN was fishing with a pink plastic worm when a 16 lb pike hit his line. His fish came out of Vermilion Lake.

SMALLMOUTH BASS

Smallies are hitting hard right now. Paul Spirake of Cicero IL found this out when he caught a 5 lb 10 oz bass right in back of Ely, in Shagawa Lake. Paul was using a jig & minnow.

Pat Neurer of Ely was also using a minnow, a rainbow chub, when he caught a 2 lb 5 oz bass also from Shagawa Lake.

The Marcotte family from Tinley Park, IL was up on Pipestone Lake this week and were catching some monster smallies there. None were brought in but they had a DeLiar scale and one hit the scale at 8 lbs and another right around 7 pounds! Most of the other smallies were in the two to four pound range.

CRAPPIE

Fall Lake produced a nice 1 lb 4 oz crappie caught by Carol Okerstrom of Virginia MN.

Another nice Fall Lake crappie, this one 1 lb 2 oz, was caught by St Louis, MO resident Jim Smith.

CATCH & RELEASE

Andrea Isgrow of Ely caught & released a 10 inch smallie from Basswood Lake, caught on a jig & minnow.

Tobi Mackie of Ely entered a largemouth bass he caught in Basswood and he was also using a jig & minnow.

Warning! Fishing is catching!
