February News

Well it has been unseasonably warm for this time of year with daytime temps reaching above freezing. We are not complaining as it has been a great time to get outside and enjoy all that Ely has to offer this time of year. As you may have already noticed we have a new addition to the resort family. Macie is a Corgi and is 9 weeks old. As you can probably tell Bella has already fallen in love with her. 

We have multiple projects around the resort we will be completing throught the rest of this off season. We have recently started to work on Cabin 13. This is going to be a big project as we are creating more space and for the most part this is a complete renovation. We will include pictures in the March newsletter of the updates.

The Schaumburg show went very well. We were able to connect with some of you and catch up on what has been going on over the last few months. To be honest it’s one of the things we look forward to most this time of year. We will be heading back down to Tinley Park, IL for our next sport show on 2/13. If your in the area stop on by we would love to catch up with you. 

Upcoming show schedule:
  • Tinly Park, IL February 13 and 14  Show Info
  • Eau Claire, WI March 18th – 20th show info
  • Minneapolis, MN March 30th – April 3rd Show Info

 Take care,

 Kerry and Sandy




Fishing Reports

Trout action remains decent throughout the area as good numbers are turning up on local area lakes. Have heard of a few people still spearing northern pike in the area as a result of limited ice thickness which has prolonged the season.

Walleye anglers are still struggling to find limits of keepers. Many small fish in the six to ten inch range are common, but weeding through them enables you to come home with at least a couple for dinner. 

Some nice crappie catches have come from Range, Fall, and East Twin lakes. It’s still a good idea to drill as you go on local lakes as ice thickness has varied considerably.
