I was out there labor day. The water temp was 68 on the windy side. We drifted through 9-12 ft out water on the edge of weeds and picked up 10 crappies, and one little walleye. nothing exciting, but the girl from cali whom never had been fishing before got to catch some fish.

It should turn over here pretty soon, and it should turn on. Be careful, I've never seen the water this low before.

Went out of Tim's Highbanks on the 22nd. He told us it had been slow for both Walleyes and Crappeyes. It was.

Fishing for Panfish, caught Bass and Northern...and Perch. blush.gif

Fishing for Northern, caught Bass and a Walleye...and Perch. blush.gif

Fishing for Crappies in the evening, caught a few 6 inchers and one 10 incher...and a Northern...and a Perch. blush.gif

So at least the Northern and Bass were hungry...and Perch. blush.gif

Didn't see anyone really getting into much.

Lots and lots of Rocks sticking up and out, and lots of ups and downs in depth.

Lots of lower units lost the past couple weeks, per Tim.

A hard lake to navigate and fish for firstimers...treacherous at night!!

With all the shallow areas and Hazards, will be thinking hard about whether to return...

Colors changing a little, seem to be lagging a bit.

Moby Fish Lake is a good fishing lake. Dont let a low water year turn ya off. Crappies are just starting to get going now.

Well, I may try it again during frozen water, but I understand there are only limited roads on ice...

Fish lake will have roads to within walking distance of several good fishing areas. The west side of the lake usually doesnt have rodas but some years with good early ice guys will drive over that way. Stay away from the D A M and the bridge!

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
