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...

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
