Monsters of Rainy Lake!

14 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, Rainy amazed me again last week. I ended up taking a couple of close buddies and they're dad along for a few day's up in the "bush." Needless to say the walleye's were on a feeding frenzy despite the drastic changes in the weather. I just keep pinching myself to really believe if this lake is true. I have to admit, I really didn't think I'd post here again because of what happend this winter, but cannot pass up the world class fishery that Rainy really is!! Enjoy the pics.. SB

First fish of the trip, 28"er

The fish were on the reef's hitting pretty much anything. Crawler harnesses with bottom bouncers and also Lindy's with leeches worked well. We caught a total of 95 walleye's in 4 day's fishing. Many fish in the 22-26" range. With many over 27. Thanks again Rainy Lake.. SB

Friends and I just got back from Rainy today. We caught lots in the 22-26" range, but none of the really big 'eyes. I did manage to pull out a 40.5" Northern though.

Those are some REALLY nice fish in the pictures!! Congrats.

SB-

Have to agree on the exceptional fishing on Rainy. Was up the week before you and the fishing was fantastic. We didn't have the numbers of big fish that you did, but we were able to manage a few wink.gif

Here is my biggest of the week!

Here is one that my Bro-In-Law caught:

I replied to your email on Monday, did you receive it? Hopefully, you don't have to wait until winter to return to the northland. Take care!

      Nice review and nice looking work!

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
