Newbie-who loves Rainy

I have been reading this forum for months, but have not been able to post. I think I am getting it figured out.

I've been dying to tell you all how beautiful your lake is and how much my family and I enjoy visiting. We have been coming to Rainy for 6 years now, we visit in August. We have lost two lower units to Rainy Rocks and still return. The Lowrance GPS really has helped there. We have fished with Woody and enjoyed our very afordable stays at Birch Point Camp. We have made a tradition of celebrating our last night in town with pizza and fun and pre season Packers on tv at Giovannis. We have fished the river and enjoyed watching the locals work the Sturgeon. My daughter loves the wild rice soup at Granny's and every morning we hit the One Stop for bait and the daily fishing report. In 6 years we have used the Falls Hospital twice for hook removal and an eye problem and everyone is so nice. I can't think of a more beautiful place on earth. (Some might say I live a very sheltered life). I for one am jealous of the beauty, the peace and the fishing you people experience every day. My husband is in the mortage bussiness and every year I say to him "maybe the Wells Fargo branch in town is hiring". I love the cold weather,too. I would love to experience Rainy on a snowmobile.

So for now I visit this forum daily smile.gif and dream of being in GOD'S country with all of you.Thanks to all of you locals who post regularly to keep me in touch.

God Bless.

Welcome to the Rainy Lake Forum! Yep life in the Northwoods with Rainy lake in the front yard is tough! I'm a guide, and my fiancee is the GM of Woody's. Last year I watched Timberwolves on a couple seperate occassions crossing the hardwater. This is an area for the true outdoor people otherwise the winters will get to you. We love the hardwater season, and enjoy spending the weekend in the sleeper out on the lake catching walleyes. I guess you'll have to come up and spend some time out on the ice! You'll be hooked Literally.

Welcome once again!

HI P. NORTS,

HAPPY YOU FIGURED IT OUT, AND FROM THE SOUNDS OF IT YOU WOULD FIT RIGHT IN, WE LOVE LIVING HERE. WERE A VERY LAID BACK, CALM SPIRITED TYPE PEOPLE. WE DO NOT LIVE IN THE BIG CITY BECAUSE WE CHOOSE NOT TO. PEOPLE WHO FREQUENT THIS SITE OFTEN SUCH AS SCOTT, CHRIS, DOUG, ERIC, DARRELL, WES, DAVE AND NUMEROUS OTHERS LIVE HERE BECAUSE WE KNOW THE UNLIMITED RESOURCES WE HAVE. TONIGHT I WAS OUT WITH DOUG...WE LIMITED OUT 0N 16" WALLEYES IN LESS THEN 30 MINUTES. WHAT IS IRONIC IS THAT THE WELLS FARGO HERE HAS A NEW PRESIDENT THAT JUST MOVED HERE, HIS NAME IS DAVID HEBIG. I HAVE BEEN OUT FISHING WITH HIM TWICE, AND I TELL YOU WHAT, HE WILL DO WELL HERE. HE HAS A EXCELLENT PERSONALITY, SEEMS VERY ORGANIZED, IS MILD MANORED & IS TRYING TO MAKE ALOT OF CONTACTS AND TALKING TO SOME OF HIS STAFF...THEY LOVE HIM.. BEST OF ALL ABOUT DAVID...HE LOVES TO HUNT & FISH., HEY MAYBE HE IS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GREAT EMPLOYEE., BUT ONE THING I CAN ASSURE YOU...YOU WOULD LOVE LIVING HERE!!! MY BROTHER CAME UP HERE FOR 25 YEARS, ONE DAY HE SAID TO ME WHY DO COME UP HERE FOR A WEEKS VACATION, SOMETIMES THE WEATHER IS BAD, WHEN WE COULD JUST LIVE HERE & VACATION SOMEWHERE ELSE. WELL HE MADE HIS DREAM COME TRUE, HE & HIS WIFE TOOK PAYCUTS, BUT I THINK HE WILL TELL YOU, IT WAS WORTH IT. HE GETS TO FISH WHENEVER HE WANTS & HAS HIS DREAM JOB.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      Seems to be flooding out.  I have pulled the plug after trying to restart and its wet, so yes flooding out. 
    • Surface Tension

      Anyone fishing this lake? How is the ice and bite?
    • freeman82
      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things. 
    • oilandwater
      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.
