Canada vs. USA

2 posts in this topic

Heading up for our 3rd annual Rainy trip on Thursday. 7-8 guys, 3 boats, staying @ Woody's, will be fishing thursday even thur Mon. Every year we've got some guys that want to fish the Canadian side, some don't. Some keep saying we gotta go farther east, we gotta go farther east (ie Saginaw Bay & beyond. I'm looking for opinions on whether or not the fishing really is that much better in Canada. And if so, how come? less fishing pressure? Or is your typical the grass is always greener effect?

Hope to stop in and see ya fishmiester.

Nice haul RainyDaze! Saw the pictures on Woody's website. Maybe you'll give us your hot spots this weekend, we'll be in the Northstar.

Nice report vister. I've lived in Wadena for 2 years now. Transplant from Duluth. Please let me know if you've got any last minute advice for this weekend.

Hey Capitalgains,

I'm sure I'll see you although I'm independant I'm guiding Friday and Saturday through Woody's. The fishing has been great! Caught some real nice fish tonight again with the fishing queen on board. Biggest fish was a nice 22 incher. FYI the fishing queen is the GM at Woody's. Pretty easy to get along with too! She always tells people we fished blindfold reef! Great gal I tell Ya! Look forward to meeting you! I haven't found a need to fish the east end this time of year, and canada...

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
