Just signed as new member. Have read some interesting things from all of you. Didn't think I'd read anything about a guy proposing tho!!!!

Anyway, coming to rainy lake the last week of August. Taking a houseboat out of Rainy Lake Houseboats with a few buddies and their sons. Need some info on where you think would be good fishing (walleye, smallies, crappies)and what baits have been working now this late in the summer. Grateful with any help!!!

Hi Jigger,

Welcome to the Rainy Lake forum! LEECHES, CRAWLERS AND SHINERS will all be turning fish for you. Deep bite is to be had off edges of the reefs or on top depending on prevailing winds? Shallow weed walleyes or current relating fish are also snapping pretty good! This is god's country up here! Hope you have an enjoyable trip! Good Fishing!

Jigger2:

Just got back from our houseboat trip on Sunday. We parked in the area of Blueberry Island and then fished the reefs nearby. We caught walleye mainly using BB and crawler harnesses/spinners but also caught them using minnows. Don't be afraid to go deeper on those reef edges at times (40+). We picked up a few smallies on the reefs too, nothing big. We were out mornings and evenings and did well. The afternoons we pulled kids tubing and skiing. Good luck.

This will be my first houseboat trip. Is it all it's cracked up to be? I've seen several references to Blueberry Island so that may be a stopping point for us also. Glad to hear BB are working as that is what I am used to using on the Missouri Lake system.

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
