Records

7 posts in this topic

I have tried unsuccessfully to locate a list of the Record Fish for Rainy Lake (Canadian side). Can anyone provide specifics?

Hi TN RIck,

I'm not aware of official individual records for fish for the Canadian side of Rainy? State records are kept obviously, but providing individual records per lake for a state that boasts 10,000 lakes might not be available.

Thanks . . . had not thought about the number of lakes. We just got back from Birch Point and were wondering what the record Pike, Smallmouth and Walleye were for Rainy.

Fishing was great and we caught some nice fish. It was our third trip and we'll be back next year.

Hi TN Rick,

Glad to hear you had a nice trip!

If you enjoy your summer trip you had ought to try a fall trip or winter. These times are absolutely beautiful here and the fishing is fantastic.

We have actually thought about a fall or early spring trip but some of our party are Wimps and afraid of the weather. May talk them into it one day though.

Our biggest fish were a 3Lb 6oz Smallmouth, 5lb 5oz Walleye and a 10 Lb 11 oz Pike. Not huge, but still had a lot of fun. The weather was a little difficult a couple of days. We still need to lear about Walleye fishing. Caught the ones we got using a Rattle Trap and a drop shot rig. Pike and Small mouth came on Buzz Baits, Dare Devil Spoons.

A great lake to fish with an unlimited number of places to try!

we hit the same areas and also had some great fishing. Robin picked up a 37 in Northern, a 27.5 in eye and a 17 in smallie. We had a lot of slot eyes and a lot of 20-25 in eyes. I had a 19 in smallie and bunches of 14-16 in smallmouth and we caught more 20-34 in northern than i ever wanted. TN, maybe we saw you, we stayed at the AMIK Lodge and have a white 16ft Crestliner with a 40 Johnson.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
