Fishing in Ely

An Activity for All Seasons

No matter what time of year you choose to visit Grand Ely Lodge, you can enjoy one of the most beloved activities in Northern Minnesota: fishing in Ely. Peak season for this sport tends to hit during the spring and summer, but the colder months have become increasingly popular over the years for outdoor enthusiasts looking to cast a line.

Our Minnesota fishing lodge is located along the scenic Shagawa Lake which features an abundance of bass, walleye, pike, and other types of fish. Rent a 16-foot fishing boat or 20-foot pontoon or simply fish right off the dock. During the late fall and winter you can head to one of our fully-equipped and heated ice fish houses. There’s no better way to really get away from it all than an afternoon spent fishing and soaking up the stunning Minnesota scenery.

Need equipment? In addition to rentals, we have our very own Grand Ely Lodge Resort Shop. Pick up a fleece vest, jacket, or other quality sporting apparel.
