Rainy This Weekend

6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!! Well we are headed back to Rainy this weekend to try and redeem ourselves from the terrible trip we had in May. Freezing cold, extreme wind, and our inability to catch a single walleye, kind of has us down. Any info that we could get would be extremely appreciated. We will be sticking to the American side of the lake.

Bill - very nice to meet you at the one stop and if you are there Friday morning we will be stopping in to say hello, and pick up some bait, and advice!! grin.gif

Once again we are extremely excited to get to our favorite fishing spot and see what the lake has to offer!!

Thanks to everyone for all the advice, and if we actually manage to catch some fish this time I will post a report grin.gif

Hey Troutchaser!

Fishing has been very good! Look to some of the summer haunts as the fish are heading out. Good use of the electronics will be the key to your success or failures this time of year.

Good FIshing Buddy!

Hey Troutchaser! How's it going? I agree with Daze...the fish are on the reefs and offshore structure, as well as shoreline points. Look to 20-30 foot of water for your action. Run those electronics till they don't run anymore!!

I won't be at the store friday, but if you have any questions feel free to post them or send an email to One Stop!

Hey Bill. It is going good, and we are really looking forward to hitting the lake again. So as far as bait goes, minnows, leeches, and crawlers, or has one or the other been more productive?

Thanks for the info!!

All three have had their place, it just depends on the day. Crawlers have been starting to hit good. If it were me, I would have minnows and leeches with...but, it would be best to have all three...

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
