Just curious if anyone has gone out of Ely and fished Pipestone, Jackfish, or parts of Basswood in the hard water season? I was thinking about going there instead of LOTW this year.

Lots, though not Pipestone or Jackfish. Wind Bay, Hoist Bay, Rice Bay - and only for northerns. Not a walleye area in the winter.

Dang it Finn...as much as you have been helping me lately...I really regret not coming over to say HI...last December while were were ice fishing Birch! lol Someday!

I was thinking about using Timber Trails....will they get you to Hoist, Wind, or Rice? I know mid December is not a PEAK period...but I think that may be when we give it a try.

Sorry for off topic... but can you use gas augers in BWCA? I would guess not, and also would not want to haul them in, but just wondering. Thanks.

Sorry Doop, you'll need to look to some dog sledders to get you up there. As far as that goes, if you're taking your dad, that may be something to look into. Makes a trip like that much easier if you have some bucks to spend.

Ah, we'll meet again some day I'm sure!
