Seasaw ... Got back last week from a 4-day trip with Rainy Lake Houseboats. We traveled thru the Brule narrows, and out towards Blueberry Island on the East side of the lake. Mid-lake reefs were the ticket out there, fishing 30-50 feet deep. Find the top of a reef, throw out a marker, and drive around the reef in a in-out pattern until you mark some fish on the electronics. If you find a decent amount of "hooks", throw out another marker, and work that spot. I found that the other marker @ the top of the reef acted like a dummy marker (pulled other boats there), while we caught fish deeper. Lindy rig with a 3 foot snell and a small yellow or orange bead in front of the hook ... crawlers or leeches (bring both). That was my first time on the east end of the lake ... awesome fishery! Not sure if that pattern remains in August, but there's my $.02. We moored in Brown's Bay, and had short boat rides to quite a few reefs. It was kinda a roll of the dice ... the site was marked tent-site only (just inside of Brown's Bay on the left), but we figured we would move if asked. Very nice spot, with sand beach and fire-ring, and blueberries by the bucket-full! Also extremely well-protected from all winds. Have fun and good luck!

Hey Sea!

Lake Erie huh! My grandparents are from Ohio, and I used to get out every once in a while to Lake Erie. I can remember pulling those Erie Deeries SP? FYI try them here. Just like at home with a gob of crawler. Good TImes! I'll probably be down there in the December time visiting family and friends close to the Port Clinton area. This isn't any secret information, but be prepared with spinner rigs in hammered gold and Chartruesse. Get yourself some shiners, leeches and Crawlers. Literally these fish change there moods day in and day out up here. pull or cast these presentations along deep humps and hold on buddy! Hope you have a great trip! Your coming from a great fishery, but this is arguably the most beautiful body of water in the world!

Just up there last week for the 3rd time in 5 years. We did fairly well. Limited out only 1 time on 1st day in 45 min!!! The hot weather didn't help. We drove thru the Brule twice and caught a few eyes each time. I never did well deep(over 20') We also did a lot better the last hour before dark and into the night....full moon. The fish come shallow at night 4-6' and for us it was easier to fish and find fish. Good Luck. I marked a ton of fish between 30-40 but never pulled any nice 'eyes out.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
