Rainy This Weekend

Recommended Posts

troutchaser

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...

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
