Babe's Bait Ely

Located in the heart of Superior National forest and on the doorstep of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Ely Minnesota is one of the most wild and wonderful remote areas left in the Continental United States. From pristine woodland streams to cool, clear placid lakes, this is one of the few places left, where you can still get lost in the beauty of the outdoors. You can choose to paddle through seemingly unending chains of lakes, or motor along through fishing territory that most people only dream about, without any doubt, this truly is a sportsman's paradise.

Whether your interest lies in landing giant northern pike, massive lake trout or what is the much revered and sought after, walleye, Ely has it all. And THE place to begin your quest is Babes Bait and Tackle. Babes has been in the same location for over 30 years, one of the oldest fishing landmarks in the region. Fishermen from all over the country and beyond pass through the doors of Babes locally known as “the best little bait shop in Ely”.
