what a day!

8 posts in this topic

Yesterday my dad and I went out to shagawa up here in Ely and fished the early bass season. What a day it turned out to be. Within the first hour of fishing we found the bass and found what the pattern was and what they would hit. We then came along a school of smallies that all of them were well over 3 pounds and were schooled up pretty good. Which was nice cause I had the hot bait while my dad was in the back switching baits and tryin to catch the fish. Well he finally switched baits and started to catch them. So I am glad to say that I out fished my dad! All together we only caught 2 fish all day that were under 3 lbs. That was something that was something unexpected and glad that we found them. We would go out today but with snow this morning, really windy and only 34 degrees out we decided not to go.

Going to be a real shame to have to come home and the reality of Bassin' Isanti isn't it. wink

Them shag's smallies are fun as all get out. I hope to see some in my future. The problem is I also have Bside trout on the brain, as well as big pike. God I love ELY!!!!

Well Done Guys!!

Couldn't have possibly been Shags - there's no bass in Shags. In fact there's no fish at all in Shags. This post is pure nonsense! winkgrin

You're bummin me out man. I haven't been able to get there yet and it'll be at least another couple weeks before I do.

Nice catches. smile

We were out again today when and the weather was great. Action was much slower until I found a bunch along/near stinky ditch. I think the cold front turned down the fishes mood. Dad outfished son this time. It is fun fishing with swim baits. Fun time fishing the early smallies and i can't wait until the regular opener for the rest of the state.
