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!

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
