East End Reefs

2 posts in this topic


Myself and my 5 year old son are heading up tomorrow afternoon and meeting my in-laws, who are camped on the West end of Namakan. I am strongly considering portaging over for the day on sunday to the east end of Rainy.

I havnt seen anything on how the reef bite is holding up. I was camped up on Rainy for 5 days, but that was 3 weeks ago now. We had excellent luck for both eaters and over's for the 5 days. Anyone have any word on how its been the last week? A friend was up with 8 others 8/18-22 at Kettle Falls, and they had slower than usual results, with alot of their fish caught on downriggers in 45-55' over the basin. Thats just not my prefered method of fishing eye's, and the little guy's Spiderman pole can only jig/rig down so far grin.gif

Thanks for any current info.

I too will be up there this weekend. I have been doing well on kab (east end) 10-15 fish days have been the norm. I have heard that the bite on rainy has been good depending on the weather. My info is from last weekend though.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.

      Looks to fix the fishing in shallow water issues many guys had too.
