Getting pumped for Rainy

3 posts in this topic

Going to Rainy on my b-day for a little bit of working, little bit of fishing, little bit of both.

I hope to see some of you out there. Let me know where they're hiding and what they want grin.gif

12 more days!!!

Right now the deeper reefs edge pattern is very productive. Leeches and Crawlers are working best in about 38' of water. The other day that it was overcast produced walleyes in shallower, about 26' of water and with the wind yesterday they were concentrated in about the same depth on top of the reefs.

However as Daze said there is a weed edge bite going on too. Trolling raps on the weed edge is producing decent numbers of walleye and good sizes too...as well as northern and bass.

Take Care!

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
